About me

I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist working with people experiencing all forms of emotional distress or who have experienced difficult or traumatic life events. Psychological therapy can be used for a whole range of reasons – this could be for help with difficult feelings, thoughts, or memories; to talk about and make sense of life experiences; or support with relationship difficulties. As a Clinical Psychologist, I have been trained in a range of evidence-based psychological therapies. I am able to combine these models to create an approach to therapy that is tailored to each person I work with.

A primary focus of my work is on developing a positive therapeutic relationship in which people feel: heard, understood, and safe.  This positive relationship then forms the foundation for therapy and enables the development of trust, resilience, and hope.  I also aim to ensure that therapy is an experience that is free from judgement.

I know that psychological therapy can be a daunting or scary idea. You might not know what to expect or what questions you will be asked. When I first meet people for therapy, I do my best to ensure that people feel as comfortable as possible and will be led by what you think would be helpful to talk about.  I am more than happy to speak on the phone prior to an initial appointment to talk through any concerns or worries you might have.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and a chartered member of the British Psychological Society (BPS).

​I completed my professional training as part of the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Lancaster University. I also have a Master’s degree in Neuropsychology from the University of Edinburgh and an undergraduate degree in psychology from the Australian National University.

​In addition to my private practice, I work and volunteer in a number of non-profit organisations and charities in Greater Manchester, working with young people and adolescents, refugees and asylum seekers, and supervising professionals.  In the past, I have worked across a range of NHS mental health services.

Initial appointment (50 mins): £30

The first appointment is a chance for you to decide whether you think working together will be a good fit for you.  I offer a reduced price for this initial meeting because I believe that you should have the opportunity to 'shop around' until you find the right therapist for you.

Therapy appointments (50 mins): £90

If you would like to work together after our initial appointment, we will develop a Therapy Agreement. This is a document which covers the details of psychological therapy, including: both of our roles in therapy, payments, confidentiality.

Further information

Please note: I am only able to offer appointments on Monday and Friday afternoons/evenings.
