About me

I am a qualified and experienced Chartered Counselling Psychologist. I work with individuals (18 and older), and couples across the lifespan. I am able to offer both short and longer term therapy. I am currently offering online sessions over Zoom, and have been using this in my clinical practice effectively.

I use an integrative approach that focuses on developing a strong therapeutic relationship and work relationally with the issues you may bring. Creating a space for empathy, trust, and congruence are important parts of this process, and central to how I work as a psychologist.

I am also a Psychosexual Therapist in training at Tavistock Relationships, working with both individuals and couples. There are many reasons why an individual or a couple seeks therapy, and I aim to provide a safe and non-judgemental space to explore the difficulties you and your partner may be experiencing.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a doctoral degree in Psychotherapeutic and Counselling Psychology from the University of Surrey. I also have a Masters in Psychology from the University of Westminster. I engage in ongoing training and learning to be able to provide the most up to date and appropriate psychological interventions. I am also a Psychosexual Therapist in training at Tavistock Relationships, working with both individuals and couples.

The benefit of my training and experience means I am able to provide an effective, evidence-based therapy that is tailored to meet your psychological needs.

I use an integrative approach that draws on a number of therapeutic modalities to develop a collaborative and holistic understanding of human distress.

In addition to my private practice, I work as a Senior Counselling Psychologist in the NHS working with adults experiencing severe and enduring mental health difficulties. I also provide clinical supervision.

Accessibility

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.
