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.
