About me

I am a HCPC registered Chartered Clinical Psychologist and an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society (AFBPsS) based in the heart of Newmarket, only a 20 minute drive from Cambridge or Bury St Edmunds, with easy access to parking.

All of the therapies that I offer have a solid theoretical underpinning and a robust evidence base as to their effectiveness.

I am committed to providing the highest quality service, tailored to meet your individual needs. I believe that everyone in need of support should be able to access therapy. Whether this is to overcome mental health difficulties, navigate significant life changes, or simply to provide a space to reflect and challenge yourself to reach your full potential, such a service can help.

During our initial sessions we will focus on gaining an in-depth understanding of what you would like to achieve and begin to unpick the patterns which are keeping you stuck.  We will form a partnership to co-create goals and formulate the most suitable therapy for you.  We will agree the number of treatment sessions that the therapy is likely to take and review this on a regular basis.

Whatever your own personal goals, we can work together to help you achieve them.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been a chartered Clinical Psychologist since 2003. During this time I have worked extensively across the lifespan, with adults, families and young people across a wide range of issues, complexity and life stage transitions.

In addition to doctorate level training in offering psychological services and therapies. I have been a trained Cognitive Analytic Therapist (CAT) for over 10 years and I am an accredited CAT supervisor. I am also fully trained in Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprogramming (EMDR).

In 2019 I was elected to the Division of Clinical Psychologists executive committee.  This is the professional board which represents Clinical Psychologists at a national level and is part of the British Psychological Society.  Prior to this position I was elected as a director of the Association of Cognitive Analytic Therapy (ACAT) and remained in this role for several years.  On stepping down as director I was invited to become a member of ACATs Ethics Board.
