About me

I help ADHD adults, teens, and children (11+) to discover relief from overwhelm, ease from anxiety, and courage to be true to themselves, for greater fulfilment in life and relationships.

I offer therapy in-person in Woking, Surrey, and online across the UK and beyond. Feel free to join my mailing list for news and resources.

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 we'll discover who you are with more clarity, ease, and trust in yourself, for 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 get in touch. Together we'll find your way forward.

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 true to yourself in a more fulfilling life.

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 much 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.

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

Further information

Getting started with therapy can feel daunting. When you book a consultation session, we'll talk through what's brought you to seek therapy, and what you're looking for. With this in mind, I'll let you know more about how I work and what I can offer 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.
