About me

You may simply be feeling stuck in some way or you may be experiencing a major life crisis. I am experienced working with mild and moderate difficulties, as well as more complex or enduring issues.

Therapy is not just a process of dealing with problems or eliminating symptoms, it is also about developing greater satisfaction with life, and creating ways to empower yourself. Being listened to and being heard and understood are integral to emotional well-being and vital for the development of self-trust and peace of mind.

Working within the NHS means I am used to helping clients work through various different levels of depression, anxiety, relationship issues, personality disorders, PTSD, and suicidal ideation. I am experienced at working with alcoholism, other substance addictions and process addictions, and I am familiar with a 12 step approach to addiction. I am accustomed to working with clients who are suffering from the repercussions of abuse; sexual, emotional, verbal and physical.

I also offer clinical supervision for other professionals.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Doctoral degree in Counselling Psychology and a BSc (Hons) Psychology. I have also completed specialist training for CBT and mindfulness, and Mediation Skills for Alternative Dispute Resolution trainings, making me an accredited Mediator.

I am a Chartered member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and a member of the Division of Counselling Psychology. I am registered as a Practitioner Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

I currently work part time within the NHS and the rest of my clinical time is spent in private practice. Within the NHS I have worked in primary care (mild to moderate difficulties), with secondary care (complex and enduring presentations), and in residential services (psychosis and also suicide risk). I have considerable experience with substance addictions (drugs and alcohol), and process addictions (sex, love, relationships etc), and have worked within HM Prison Service.
