About me

I am a qualified and experienced Clinical Psychologist working within the NHS and private practice. I have a warm and empathic approach and I am incredibly passionate about my work and enabling others in their recovery. I will provide you with a safe and confidential space and work with you using a collaborative and person centred approach.

The service I offer includes psychological assessment and psychological therapy to adults. I work with a range of psychological difficulties which include depression, anxiety disorders including phobias, low self-esteem, anger, PTSD, personality difficulties, body image difficulties and psychological difficulties related to physical health conditions.

I have experience and knowledge of a range of psychological models and I work in an integrative approach drawing from various psychological models including CBT.

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.
