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.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

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.

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.
