The ADHD Psychologist - PsychD, MSc, BSc (Hons)

About me

I help ADHD adults, teens, and children (11+) to discover relief from overwhelm, ease from anxiety, and more fulfilling connections with themselves and others.

I offer therapy online across the UK and beyond, and face-to-face in Woking, Surrey.

Perhaps you have a sense you struggle more than others, which can leave you feeling ashamed and unsure of yourself. With an unruly mind and relentless anxiety, you can feel held back from what’s important to you in life and relationships. Some part of you knows there's a happier more fulfilled 'you' desperate to get out. I offer a nurturing and empowering space, where together we'll discover who you were always meant to be. With more clarity, ease, and trust in yourself, you can find greater fulfilment in life.

Through my own journey, I’ve found myself with the wonderful privilege of supporting ADHDers to feel happier in themselves and more at ease in life and relationships. I’m here to help you share and make sense of your story to overcome what’s holding you back. Feel free to check out my website and book a free introductory call. 

Training, qualifications & experience

Over 14 years working in psychology in the NHS and beyond, I've helped many ADHDers come away from therapy feeling better within themselves. I bring my background in neuropsychology (understanding the brain) to helping ADHDers through therapy. I offer a neurodiversity-affirming approach where you can develop the courage and freedom to be your best true self.

I'm trained to a doctoral level to work with a range of proven therapies, which I integrate and adapt to meet your unique personal needs.

  • PsychD Counselling Psychology
  • MSc Cognitive Neuroscience
  • BSc (Hons) Psychology with Neuropsychology

Although I’ve learned a thing or two over the years, you’re still the expert on you and your unique life. I’m here to help you share and make sense of your story to overcome what’s holding you back. Together, we’ll find your way forward.

August 2022: Please note I have limited availability. If a suitable slot isn't available for you, I'd be happy to let you know when one becomes available. 

Further information

Getting started with therapy can feel daunting. When you schedule a free introductory phone call, we'll talk to get a better sense of what you'd like to gain from therapy, and whether I might be the right person to support you. From there, many find within a session or two they begin to experience some initial relief, and a taste of hope and change to come.
