About me

Thank you for looking into my profile.

I am a Clinical Psychologist offering psychological services to people over the age of 14. I am based in Liverpool but most of my clients are seen remotely and are based all over the UK. I work with most psychological difficulties such as anxiety and depression and have a special interest in trauma related difficulties.

My other area of expertise includes issues related to brain injury, dementia and learning disabilities.

I have a particular interest in working with hard to reach communities, and in particular people that identify as being from minority groups. I can carry out assessments of memory, attention, intelligence, personality and so on.

I supervise other professionals who provide counselling, psychotherapy and psychology. Some times psychology sessions can be provided via one of my associates, who is a psychologist personally vetted and chosen by me, so I trust their quality.

If you would like to ask me any questions or book an appointment, I welcome you to either give me a text or call on 07587735567 or click here to send me an email.

Training, qualifications & experience

My Experience

I have been working in the field of psychotherapy and psychology since 1994 where I first qualified in Portugal, and then went to volunteer in Western Africa for 2 years providing practical and psychological support for disaster victims experiencing severe trauma. I am passionate about the work I do and I believe that people can create change in their lives with the right guidance and support. In the UK and since 2007, I have worked for the NHS and charitable organisations. I have worked for: Mersey Care NHS Trust, the Walton Centre NHS Trust, St Helens NHS Trust; and St Andrews Healthcare.

At present, my work involves working with adolescents, adults and older adults experiencing a range of psychological distress and concerns. One branch of my work is with survivors of brain injury and their families (and other loved ones) to provide education and therapy for positive change and rehabilitation. My other work includes providing therapy for people facing life stress that may impact on their work and profession. I also work with people with long term conditions and often regarded as resistant to treatment, like personality disorders, bipolar, and learning disabilities.

My approach

I work from a range of models depending on your requirements. Therapies I use include

  • cognitive behavioural (CBT)
  • acceptance and commitment (ACT)
  • Mindfulness-based therapy
  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
  • Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT)
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

I use these models interactively to help people achieve their goals. I am compassionate but inquisitive. My main priority is helping people feel empowered about their strengths, address their weaknesses, and focus on preventing relapse.

My academic qualifications include:

- BA Psychology with Criminology (2003-2006), University of Northampton

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
