About me

*Online and telephone sessions available*

Do you have a particular issue support could help you with? Or perhaps you feel confused, stuck, overwhelmed, or unsure of what to do? I provide a safe, supportive, caring, confidential space to help us make sense of, and resolve the difficulties you are experiencing.

I understand that speaking to someone about your difficulties may feel daunting and can feel like a big step to take. Through my work I offer a thoughtful and valuing presence, combined with expertise and experience to help you experience greater wellness, happiness, and a more joyful life.


Therapeutic Approaches

My desire to help others  led me to embark on 8 years of training in order to become a Chartered Clinical Psychologist. The doctorate and subsequent advanced training has enabled me to develop expertise in a variety of different therapeutic approaches. I am therefore able to tailor therapy to meet your individual needs by utilising the following therapeutic modalities:

  • Cognitive behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • EMDR
  • Mindfulness
  • Compassion Focused-Therapy
  • Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
  • Dialectical Behavioural Therapy
  • Person-centred Therapy


Areas of Specialism

Over the last 15 years I have worked with people who present with difficulties ranging from mild to severe. This experience combined with ongoing training has enabled me to develop specialist knowledge and skills in working with the following:

  • Anxiety
  • Low mood and depression
  • Low self-esteem and confidence
  • Relationship and Family issues
  • Divorce and separation
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Work-related stress
  • Anger
  • Post-traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Abuse and trauma
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
  • Phobias
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Personality Disorders

I am also particularly interested in the link between our emotional and physical health. I therefore adopt a holistic approach to understanding your difficulties, and incorporate techniques that will enhance your psychological, emotional, spiritual and physical well-being.
