About me

Hi there!

I am a chartered Clinical Psychologist with 9 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

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.
