About me

Please see the bottom of my profile or my personal website for information on my fees and days of availability.

I'm registered with the health care professions council (HCPC) and trained to doctorate level in clinical psychology which required developing competencies in a range of therapeutic approaches. I am also an accredited neuropsychologist.

I have over 15 years experience in mental and physical health services working across hospital, inpatient, outpatient and community settings in the NHS, NGO and voluntary sector including work internationally. Clinically I see people across the age span from childhood to older adults with a wide variety of presenting difficulties.

My approach to therapy is to foster a compassionate curiosity so we can jointly understand the unique nature of your experiences. I also aim to situate the difficulties brought to therapy within the broader context they occur as problems seldom exist in a vacuum. This means that alongside focusing on individual agency, we will usually seek to acknowledge and understand the influence of relationships, families, organisations and/or broader social and cultural context. 

Therapeutically, I typically work from an attachment focused perspective which involves understanding how current feelings and behaviours are shaped by past experiences and internal conflicts to get to the root of longstanding issues. In addition, I am experienced in adult neuropsychology and provide cognitive assessment and rehabilitation.

The reality is that therapy is challenging since personal growth and internal transformation is often painful. The very difficulties that bring you to therapy will inevitably play out in the therapeutic relationship with me as your therapist. When this occurs, therapy is most effective when this can be explored by both of us as part of the process.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

How to begin therapy with me

I offer a free initial 15 minute no obligation telephone call. This is not an assessment or therapy session, rather it is intended to answer any questions you may have and discuss practicalities of how we might work together. Please feel free to e-mail me to schedule this.

After the consultation if we both decide it would be suitable, we would then schedule an initial 50 minute assessment appointment to discuss your concerns and desired change in more detail. The first three sessions would be an extended assessment period after which we should have a shared understanding of what issues we are working on and how I will support you with this. We will then continue to meet weekly unless it is mutally decided that I'm unable to support you with your needs.

Please note that I am not able to provide a crisis service. Therefore if you feel you are at risk please contact your GP or local crisis team.
