About me

Hello, I am a Clinical Psychologist offering specialist therapy for anxiety and cancer.

I work with people diagnosed with cancer and other medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, etc. I also provide psychological support for relatives and professionals.

I understand that managing several hospital appointments can be challenging. We can meet weekly or fortnightly depending on your needs and availability.

I have several years of experience in treating anxiety, depression, stress, burnout, overwhelm, low self-esteem, loss, bereavement, adjustment to diagnosis, and health problems.  

In your first session, I will explain to you what therapy is and what treatments I offer and, together, we can decide what might be the best treatment for you. 

I have clinical training in a variety of psychological treatments such as:

  • cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
  • compassion focused therapy (CFT)
  • acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)
  • mindfulness interventions

I know how important it is to have someone to talk to about your experiences.  Together, we can try to make sense of what has happened to you and explore coping skills to help you move forward.

Start a new chapter in your life.

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
