I qualified as a Clinical Psychologist, which involved rigorous academic and clinical training over six years of full-time study, research, and clinical placements within the National Health Service. I currently hold a position as a Clinical Psychologist in a psychiatric hospital. My role involves supporting adults with severe and enduring mental health problems, such as treatment-resistant schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, schizoaffective disorder, depression, anxiety, and complex trauma.
I believe the therapeutic relationship is essential to helping people explore and understand themselves. Therefore, I aim to create an open and trusting rapport with each client in therapy as they make sense of their experiences and work towards their goals. I work with clients using evidence-based approaches such as CBT, DBT, and Mindfulness.
It is a big decision to undertake psychological therapy. Whether decided or undecided, please feel free to get in contact to talk through your options without obligation. I receive Monday to Friday, 5 - 8pm. I offer therapy in English and Italian.
