About me

My role is to help you work towards overcoming your difficulties within the context of a safe and collaborative space. The support and expertise I offer will help enable you to focus upon improving your life through the awareness you gain and conscious choices you make.

I have completed extensive professional training which qualifies me as a Chartered Counselling Psychologist, Certified Schema Therapist, Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and Psychotherapist. I have been practising psychotherapy with clients since 2006.

I have experience of working with individuals across the adult lifespan, with a broad range of emotional, relational and behavioural difficulties. The depth of training and experience I have gained means that I have the flexibility to work with clients in a focused goal-orientated and/or an open, more exploratory manner, depending upon your individual needs. 

My client-facing experience extends back to 2004, when I worked as a Psychology Assistant at HMP Wormwood Scrubs, having completed my psychology degree in 2001. It was this experience which prompted me to pursue training in psychotherapy, driven by my emerging passion to help improve the lives of others. 

What to expect
Initial sessions form an assessment phase which helps to establish a focus for therapy. Through this process I will develop with you a comprehensive understanding of your presenting difficulties: seeking to understand how they originated and are maintained. As therapy progresses this shared understanding will evolve and orientate how we work together. The therapeutic interventions I employ will be grounded in theoretical rationale, within the context of the therapeutic relationship, which is the overarching agent of change. We can target both the symptoms of your difficulties and their underlying cause.

My personal style is warm, empathic and enquiring. I have a particular interest in how early relational experiences influence present life experience, problematic symptoms, relational patterns and images of self.

Sessions are attended on a weekly basis, or more frequently if necessary.

I am currently working online only.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have formal training in Schema Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person-Centred psychotherapy, Psychodynamic and Brief Psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

I have experience of providing brief, medium and longer term psychotherapy within a variety of professional settings. These include primary and secondary care NHS services, an NHS staff counselling service, low-cost counselling services and an NHS community mental health team. I have worked in private practice since 2014, and in Harley Street, in partnership with Harley Therapy.co.uk, from 2014 - 2021.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree, BSc (Hons), in Experimental Psychology from the University of Bristol, and a Master of Science, MSc, and Professional Doctorate, DPsych, in Counselling Psychology. I have completed specialist training, PGDip, in CBT at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, King’s College London. I am a registered Practitioner Psychologist with the Health Care and Professions Council, a member of the International Society of Schema Therapy (ISST), and of the British Psychological Society’s (BPS) Division of Counselling Psychology and their Psychotherapy Section.
