About me

I have worked in a range of settings to include independent sector, NHS and National Charities. I have worked with adults, children and adolescents and have a particular interest in the perinatal period and the transition to parenthood.

I work with adults experiencing difficulties with anxiety, depression, trauma, OCD, stress, workplace related difficulties, eating difficulties, Pre and post bariatric surgery, relationship issues and health related difficulties.

I work with children & adolescents experiencing difficulties with school, family relationships, anxiety, depression, OCD, phobias, looked after and adoptive children.

I also work with parents who may be experiencing difficulties in the transition to parenthood and with their relationship with their infant. With adults I work with anxiety, depression, OCD, antenatal and postnatal depression & anxiety, miscarriage, fertility issues, trauma, relationship issues, workplace stress, obesity, bariatric surgery, self-esteem issues.

I am a Chartered Consultant Clinical Psychologist, an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society and I'm registered as a practitioner psychologist with the HCPC. I have over 15 years experience in the NHS and in independent practice.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified in 2002 with a Doctorate in Clinical & Community Psychology from the University of Exeter and a BSc(Hons) from Plymouth University in 1997. I have extended my training since qualifying, which has incorporated attachment measures, level 1 EMDR, Neonatal Behavioural Observation, assessments methods to give insight into the parent-infant relationship, e.g. CARE-Index, Video Interaction Guidance. Also the PACE approach for looked after children.

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

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I also work with parents when they are expecting a baby and in the postnatal period when they may be struggling with bonding with their baby and with the transition to parenthood.

I also work with adults who are contemplating or have had bariatric surgery.
