About me

My aim is to work alongside you to help you to respond to the problems you are facing in ways that are in keeping with your values and preferences. People consult me about a range of situations and problems, for example; anxiety, depression and other mental health concerns, relational and family distress, grief, loss, trauma, abuse, chronic illness and work related difficulties.

As a clinical psychologist I am trained in a range of evidence based psychological therapies and I am therefore able to adapt my approach to suit your needs and preferences. This is based on consultation with you about what has been helpful to you in the past and upon the formulation or understanding of the problems you are bringing that we will share.

My work is underpinned by narrative therapy principles, which means I won't blame you for the difficulties you are experiencing and that I will be respectful of the knowledge, skills, experience and expertise you hold in relation to your own life. My aim is to facilitate change in ways that empower people and reduces the influence of stigma.

Training, qualifications & experience

Having qualified as a clinical psychologist in 1998, I have specialised in working with adults, children, young people and their families/carers experiencing a range of mental health problems. As a Consultant Clinical Psychologist, I was the clinical lead of a health and education assessment unit for children. Since establishing my own practice, Riverbank Psychology, over four years ago, I have continued to work with adults, couples, families and children.

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.
