About me

At different times in our lives, we all feel overwhelmed emotionally, physically and mentally. At times like this, seeking the right professional support can help bring a sense of clarity and resolution.

I am a psychologist who has many years experience of using evidence-based therapies to work with anxiety, depression, panic attack, relationship difficulties, social anxiety, trauma and many other kinds of challenges.

I am trained to the highest standard to use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Action and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I combine these approaches with evidence-based body-focused therapies like Somatic Experiencing and Mindfulness which can be helpful in managing symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma etc.

CBT can help people develop the skills to think and behave in more flexible ways which tend to lead to feeling better.  It is an effective therapy for managing anxiety, depression, PTSD and so on.

ACT teaches skills to help people live and behave in ways that are consistent with their personal values while developing their capacity to be flexible in their action. Research shows that it is effective for all kinds of challenges like chronic pain, depression, grief, anxiety disorders etc.

EMDR is an effective approach that can help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders.

I am a chartered psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and registered with the Health and Care Profession Council (HCPC) which means that I am trained to the highest possible standard. 

I offer therapy face to face as well as via Skype and Zoom video conferencing. Please give me a call for a free 10 - 15 minutes chat about how therapy may be able to help you.

You can also text or email me for further information.
