About me

For some time now you might have been struggling to make sense of how you are feeling and wish to talk things through with a professional. This could relate to difficulties with your mood and some behaviours you are not happy with. You might wish to explore and work on these. Perhaps this was because of a recent event, or something that is related to your early childhood experiences, or even a combination of different life circumstances.

You may also be thinking that despite already seeking help for some of the issues that you have been facing, you feel unfulfilled and think that something is missing in terms of healing. I believe that my specialism in working with trauma, using a variety of specialist trauma approaches which include, Therapeutic Reparenting, EMDR and Somatic Psychotherapy models, can benefit your healing journey.

Spending this time to stop and reflect can offer new understandings and paths to move forward, enabling a deeper understanding and acceptance of yourself. Stepping Stones Psychology could help you with this.

Thank you for taking time to view my page. Have a wonderful day.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a psychologist trained to doctorate level. As a scientist-practitioner, my clinical training involved a strong foundation of research and scientific practice. This means that I place a great emphasis on psychological theories and recent scientific research; I am dedicated to using evidence-based practices to help you identify your strengths and move through difficult times.

I am trained within the discipline of Counselling Psychology which means that my practice of psychology will be grounded in humanistic values and that my role includes being a reflective practitioner. This involves working with your frame of reference – seeing the challenges from your perspective and adapting therapeutic interventions to your needs. This means that I work as both a reflective and integrative practitioner.
