About me

I am a chartered psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS), an accredited cognitive behaviour therapy practitioner with the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP), and a registered metacognitive therapy practitioner with the Metacognitive Therapy Institute (MCT-I). In my practice I focus on developing a collaborative and client centred understanding of presenting problems (the case formulation) together with tailor-making treatment programmes using either cognitive behaviour therapy or metacognitive therapy. I have twenty years experience working as a clinician.

Addictive behaviours, in particular alcohol use, gambling, nicotine use and technology. Anxiety problems, in particular generalised anxiety and worry, panic attacks, phobias and social anxiety. Depression and rumination. Occupational functioning, achieving better life-work balance, improving cognitive performance, managing work-related stress.
Please contact me so that we can find time to talk about how we together can help you make a positive change in your life.
