I am a Counselling Psychologist with extensive experience of delivering evidence-based treatments in the NHS, within voluntary organisations and in private practice. I have worked with individuals and groups experiencing mental health difficulties including depression, a variety of anxiety disorders, bereavement and addiction.
I believe in the importance of the therapeutic relationship and collaboration in therapy and aim to help my clients become more aware of patterns in the way they think, feel and behave in an environment where they feel comfortable, safe and respected.
I am able to provide therapy in English and Japanese.
