About me

Hi there!

I am a chartered Clinical Psychologist with 8 years of clinical practice both in the NHS and in the private sector. I have a breadth of experience in working with clients struggling with a variety of emotional difficulties often resulting from trauma, changes and adjustments in life, transitions, separations and loss. My clinical training and experience means that I can draw on a number of evidence-based therapy models and approaches. As such, my interventions are always tailored according to the individual's needs.

Negative beliefs and perceptions around our emotions, feelings and experiences can often be a barrier to engaging meaningfully with every-day life, others and the world. And with ourselves, too. Therapy provides a safe space and a unique opportunity for anyone to explore such emotions and experiences and how they effect our behaviour and relationships. In my practice I always take a curious and non-judgemental stance, as I believe this can free us up to look at things from a different perspective, with the hope to arrive to a new meaning for what might seem like an old and nagging problem.

Some of the commonly experienced emotional difficulties that I can help you with:

  • Anxiety, both generalised and specific, including panic attacks
  • Body image difficulties
  • Depression
  • Dysfunctional eating behaviours
  • Low self-esteem and confidence
  • Persistent physical symptoms that are not fully explained by the medical profession
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Stress and stress related problems
  • Long term chronic physical conditions
  • Work related issues
