About me

I am a Clinical Psychologist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

I have extensive experience working in psychological teams in the NHS and charitable organisations since 2004. My specialism is working with adults with a range of difficulties. Some of these commonly include anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, obsessive compulsive disorder, low self-esteem, childhood and adulthood abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder, domestic violent experiences, eating disorders, difficulties regulating emotions, and work-related difficulties. I am also experienced with working with veterans.


I work using an integrative approach, where I use a combination of therapeutic models to tailor therapy for the individual. The predominant approaches I use include Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy.

I offer both short-term work, where we agree on a fixed number of sessions to work towards, or open-ended therapy, where we review how therapy is going intermittently.

Training, qualifications & experience


I completed my doctorate in clinical psychology at The University of Leicester; this is the professional qualification required to practice as a Clinical Psychologist. Prior to this, I obtained a Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology (University of Liverpool), in addition to a Postgraduate Certificate in Psychological Therapies (University of Nottingham), Advanced Diploma Cognitive Behavioural Skills (University of Derby) and Counselling Skills, (Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body). I continue to undertake regular professional development training.

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.

The room is spacious and positioned on the ground floor of the building, close to the main entrance.
