About me

I provide therapy for individuals, families, couples and children. You may simply be feeling stuck in some way, or you may be experiencing a major life crisis.

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. I believe that 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.

I have worked within the NHS with mild to moderate difficulties, and complex and enduring issues. This includes 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 currently work for mental health services within the NHS. My career as a psychologist has included working within the NHS in both primary care and secondary care settings, and within HMP service and addiction services.

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).
