About me

I am a clinical psychologist with 25 years of experience working with children, adolescents and adults. I offer therapy for problems including anxiety (e.g. fears and phobias) and for problems resulting from traumatic experiences. This includes problems stemming from particular traumatic events such as a car accident or assault but also from experiences such as bullying, family conflict or abuse. My preferred method of working is a technique called EMDR (see emdrassociation.org.uk/whatis-emdr/ to find out more) although I also use other therapeutic approaches. I am happy to discuss your needs by phone or email in order to help you decide whether you wish to make use of this service.
