About me

I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the British Psychological Society (BPS). I am an Associate Fellow of the BPS (AFBPsS).

I have worked in psychological services since 2003 and have specialised in working with adults experiencing a range of complex psychological difficulties. I work within the NHS and independently. I provide specialist psychological assessment and therapy to individuals, couples, families and groups. I also provide supervision, consultation and training to other professionals.

My areas of specialism include:

  • Anxiety - generalised anxiety, panic, phobias, OCD, health anxiety
  • Depression and low mood (including perinatal and postnatal depression)
  • Grief, loss and bereavement
  • People who have experienced trauma/abuse (including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder & Dissociation)
  • Anger management problems
  • Self esteem issues
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Self harm
  • Psychosis

I am trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches and models to help people experiencing a variety of psychological difficulties, including Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).

I am committed to developing a safe, non-judgemental and compassionate therapeutic alliance with clients in which difficulties can be explored and understood through the development of a collaborative formulation. A formulation explores a person’s life and the personal meaning of events, difficulties and experiences that contribute towards current distress. I work with clients to identify how and why their difficulties developed, how they get maintained and how they can manage or overcome their difficulties more effectively.

I offer a clinic in Stroud, Gloucestershire. If you would like to discuss accessing therapy, or to find out more information please contact me on 07855272817.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a doctorate in Clinical Psychology and have worked in the NHS since 2003. I am a Chartered and Associate Fellow member of the British Psychological Society and am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council.

In addition to private practice, I work for the NHS in Gloucestershire, offering individual psychological therapy to adults, couples, families and groups. I also provide supervision, training and consultation to other professionals.

As a member of a regulated and professional governing body (HCPC and BPS), I am bound by a strict code of Conduct and Ethics and work to very high standards of skills, knowledge and behaviour.

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.
