About me

I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist with over 20 years of experience as a Lead Clinician in the NHS. I work with clients using a person centred, compassionate approach- tailoring treatment to individual needs and circumstances. I have had vast experience across the spectrum of mental health difficulties in the adult population.

Whether you are struggling with an anxiety disorder or depression, or overcoming past trauma, I will help you to understand your difficulties and find a way to manage and overcome the problems you are facing. I have a wide range of experience and have spent many years working with individuals with both reactive and long term mental health problems. I am a qualified DBT, CBT and EMDR practitioner. I have worked extensively with Borderline Personality Disorder/EUPD, Depression, Anxiety, Complex and Acute Trauma, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder as well as Grief and Adjustment Disorders. I am also experienced in working with difficulties associated with physical health disorders such as Functional Neurological Disorder and Chronic Pain.

I am based in Bury St Edmunds and deliver therapy in person and online.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
