About me

I am a Senior Chartered Clinical Psychologist who works compassionately and collaboratively with young adults and adults experiencing psychological distress.  I can work with a range of psychological difficulties including anxiety, OCD, worry, shame, low self-esteem, low mood, sleep difficulties, trauma and grief/bereavement to help you achieve a fulfilling and meaningful life.

My area of specialism includes working with people who are struggling to create a fulfilling life as a result of a chronic health condition (e.g. pain, fatigue, cancer, diabetes, epilepsy, fibromyalgia etc), anxiety/OCD/shame (which was the topic of my doctorate research) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Your story combined with psychological theory helps gives us the best platform for understanding your hopes/aims for therapy and how sessions could help. My main therapeutic approaches employed include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). However I also draw upon ideas from a systemic family therapy, compassion-focused therapy, solution-focused therapy and object relations approaches.  My goal is to help you make significant steps towards your goals of a more meaningful life.

I have also completed part 1 of Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) training which is a therapy specifically focused on helping individual process traumatic memories. Sessions for this therapy last 90 minutes.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have over 10 years’ experience working with adults both in the private and NHS settings including community teams and large teaching hospitals in Surrey. I have also worked in the specialist OCD clinic in the Maudsley Hospital in London obtaining specific clinical experience and working on several research projects.
