About me

In challenging times, working with the right therapist can help us cope and recover quickly. It can also bring some sense of clarity and resolution.

I am a therapist with 10 years' experience of using evidence-based therapies to work with anxiety, depression, panic attack, relationship difficulties, stress, PTSD, trauma and many other mental health challenges.

I am trained to the highest standard to use:

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT),

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy,

Compassion-focus Therapy,

Action and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

I often combine the above ways of working with body-focused interventions like Somatic Experiencing, Internal Family System and Mindfulness. Body-focused interventions can help deepen understanding of our unhelpful thinking, emotional and behaviour patterns.

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 helpful to you.

You can also text or email me for further information.
