I am a Clinical Psychologist working privately offering psychological therapy to individuals over the age of 16 in the Wakefield area, or nationally online. I work with most psychological difficulties such as anxiety and depression and have a special interest in trauma related difficulties. I draw on a wide range of therapy models to create an individualised therapy package for each client.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I am currently only seeing clients online due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
I have some "after 5pm" appointment slots, but these are often booked up ahead of time. I mainly work Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
