About me

I am a chartered Clinical Psychologist running a private practice for adults and young people. I qualified as a Psychologist in 2000 and I have been practicing in the UK since 2004. I am also a EMDR Europe Accredited Practitioner and I worked in the NHS for over 13 years before fully dedicating my time to private practice.

I am trained in a range of evidence based therapies including EMDR, CBT (including ‘Third waves CBT such as ACT - Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and CFT - Compassion Focused Therapy), Polyvagal Theory and IPT.

I am trained in providing ADHD and ASC assessments and because these conditions are often contributing factors to both anxiety and depression, I provide post-diagnostic psychological interventions to people diagnosed with ADHD and presenting with a mental health condition.
(Please note that I no longer offer ADHD/ASC assessments as I am at full capacity).

My approach is collaborative.

Areas of interest

The choice of the therapy model is informed by the formulation and the evidence base for the problem.

I am passionate about working with people who face the challenges of being on sick leave and plan their return to work, helping them navigate the complexities during the transition.
I have helped many individuals who faced stressful times due to change and transition both at a personal and professional level. This can be related to office, family, friendships or group dynamics; or individuals who were struggling to adjust to change, like relocating to a new city / country.

I am also passionate about providing post-diagnostic support to people with ADHD who are also suffering from a mental health problems.

I provide treatment for Trauma and PTSD; Anxiety; Depression (including post-natal); Stress; Work-related Stress and Burnout; Adjustment Disorders; Interpersonal and Relationship Problems; Low Self-Esteem.
