About me

I am a registered clinical psychologist, accredited through the Health and Care Professions Council. I am registered with the British Psychological Society. 

I qualified with a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of Manchester in 2014. 

I have worked in private practice since 2015.  

I work with adults and young people with emotional problems such as relationship difficulties, self-harm, eating disorders, anxiety and depression.

I offer a non-judgemental therapy service. I appreciate that change can be a difficult process. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained as a clinical psychologist at the University of Manchester.  Since qualifying in 2014, I have worked in the NHS and privately to provide assessment and treatment to adults and children.

I began working in the NHS in various roles in 2007. I stopped working in the NHS in 2017,  to dedicate my time to private practice.

Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

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.

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.
