About me

I offer a holistic, person centred approach working with my clients to support them to understand the challenges they face and how to move beyond them in a way that is congruent with their needs.

I work with individuals and families across the lifespan and have extensive experience of working with children with emotional well-being difficulties, behavioural difficulties, and trauma. I also have a special interest in working with people with long-term health conditions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified clinical psychologist with 7 years post qualification experience. During this time I have worked in a range of settings including adult mental health, clinical health psychology, trauma and bereavement, early intervention services for children, as well as working privately with a range of presenting difficulties including anxiety, low mood, OCD, trauma, phobias and panic.

I have additional training in the areas of cognitive behavioural therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and EMDR.

Member organisations

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

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.

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.

My home practice and clinic space in Hatfield are accessible spaces.
