About me

Apologies I do not currently have the capacity to see new patients.

I am an experienced psychotherapist and have had a private practice in the centre of Guildford in Surrey for over ten years.

Life can be extremely tough. We can experience challenging emotions like shame, anxiety, anger, guilt, or depression, which can feel hard to understand and overcome. We can experience difficulties in our relationships with others - at work, in our social lives, or in our families. We may develop psychiatric illnesses such as eating disorders, depressive disorders, or an addiction. Others of us are born with challenges such as Autism, ADHD, or Dyslexia.

We can all suffer to varying degrees. It is a fact of life and part of being human and yet sometimes we get stuck. Engaging in therapy and letting a therapist join you for part of your journey can be a valuable and rewarding experience.

As well as helping people with difficult emotions and life experiences, I also have extensive experience and specialist training to work with Eating Disorders. I work with individuals aged 18 and over using various methods including MANTRA (Maudsley Anorexia Nervosa Treatment for Adults), CBT-E (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Eating Disorders), CFT (Compassion Focused Therapy), MI (Motivational Interviewing), and psychoeducation. All my Eating Disorder work is evidence-based and therefore meets the NICE guidelines.

I also have additional training to work with Autism Spectrum Disorders. I particularly enjoy working with women who either have an ASD diagnosis, or who suspect they may fulfil the necessary criteria. I also enjoy working with adults who have received a late ASD diagnosis and couples where one or both partners are autistic.

I strongly believe that the quality of the therapeutic relationship that we build together will determine the outcome of your therapy. It is an enormous privilege for me to be invited into someone's life and to watch them grow and change.
