About me

If you are an adult experiencing low mood, anxiety, stress or overwhelm then I can help you to develop new ways of coping with difficult situations, thoughts and feelings, and refocus your energies on building the life you want - filled with meaning and purpose. I can support you to reconnect with the people and things that are important to you. I also work with children and adolescents who are struggling to cope with difficult emotions, including those who have experienced traumatic stress, to develop a toolbox of life skills that will help them to reach their full potential.

I mainly use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to support people to learn practical strategies for dealing with difficulties, combined with taking positive action towards living the life you want. I am also passionate about reconnecting people with nature.

As well as being a Clinical Psychologist, I am also a yoga & mindfulness teacher and a children's yoga therapist. This gives me a holistic understanding of well-being, as well as a broad range of skills for working with the body, mind and heart to optimise this. So if this way of working interests you, then please get in touch to discuss the options.
