About me

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.
