About me

I am an experienced Clinical Psychologist specialising in adult mental health problems including anxiety, depression and psychosis recovery, offering therapy sessions via zoom.

My approach: I work in a practical and direct way with the issues you bring. I find it helpful to use worksheets and images to help build psychological understanding and explanations of the problems you experience. Once we develop a picture together of the current problems we think about strategies to help lead to change.

  • I am able to help with a range of issues from mild concerns to complex and enduring mental health problems.
  • I am an HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist.
  • I work both in specialist NHS mental health services and in private practice. I have experience of working in NHS therapeutic and psychological services since 2004.

As a clinical psychologist I am trained to use a variety of therapy and psychological techniques.

  • The main model I use is CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy)
  • I also use ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and Behavioural therapy

I work collaboratively and flexibly with my clients in order to develop a personal and tailored understanding of their issues, a treatment plan and therapeutic work.

Training, qualifications & experience

The issues I specialise in:

I have worked within primary, secondary care and specialist NHS services as a psychologist. I therefore have good experience of working with a range of psychological difficulties including: anxiety, depression, feeling sad, low self-esteem, phobia, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), panic and panic attacks, generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), distressing thoughts, experiences of paranoia and suspicious thoughts, unusual or odd experiences, bipolar disorder and psychosis.

In my NHS post I provide specialist psychological input to an adult community mental health service for individuals with complex, enduring mental health problems and psychosis. I also develop and deliver training to staff teams on mental health issues and supervise trainee clinical psychologists.

What next:

  • I work with the issues that people want to bring and feel are important to them

In the first session we will discuss what you want to get from therapy, current issues and make a plan for future sessions.

It is important to find the right fit for you. Please feel free to email/phone/text me to discuss your needs and requirements. I offer a free telephone consultation to answer any questions and help you decide on the next steps.

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