About me

I am a chartered clinical psychologist working with adults with emotional and mental health difficulties in both the NHS and independent practice. My role involves assessment and therapeutic work for a range of mental health problems in adults in both individual and group formats, expert witness reports for legal proceedings, and supervision and training of other therapists and trainee clinical psychologists from Manchester and Lancaster University Doctoral programmes.

Over the 15 years since qualification I have been attempting to continuously develop and refine the service I offer. It is my intention to offer the range of evidence based therapies at the highest level of nuance and rigour, alongside approaches that may lie outside empiricist traditions namely psychodynamic and existential approaches, all within a context of critical thinking and an appreciation of epistemology. My intention is to offer this breadth and depth of psychological thinking with an agility and a commitment to first principles rather than to protocolised formats to offer unique and bespoke therapeutic experiences. In so doing I aim to offer a facilitative space for you to explore yourself and your life and what it is that you want most deeply, and for you to develop parts of yourself you value to help you move closer to living the life that really matters to you. My aim is ultimately for you to approach in your own way, an experience of expansiveness and a sense of wholehearted connection with the different parts of yourself, and indeed with others so that you can live closer to yourself, closer to others and closer to life in a more fluid and undefended way.
