About me

I am a Clinical Psychologist with 25 years+ experience of working with children, young people and families. I have worked in the NHS for 20 years and also in a University setting and a third sector organisation. I work individually with children and adolescents and offer therapeutic work for a range of presenting difficulties. I use principles from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) in this work. I have a particular interest and experience in working with a range of anxiety difficulties including trauma symptoms, obsessive compulsive symptoms and generalised anxiety difficulties.

I have developed particular expertise in the area of parenting and draw on attachment theory to understand how children�s behaviours are shaped and developed. I enjoy working with parents to explore their own patterns and needs in relation to their parenting. Therefore, in addition to the individual work with children / adolescents, I am also able to offer a range of parenting support aimed at helping parents understand and manage their children�s needs. This can be particularly helpful when young people are reluctant to engage in the therapeutic work themselves.

I have a lot of experience in working with children & adolescents who are neurodivergent and who have experienced trauma. I believe that when families have a thorough understanding of their child�s needs, they are better able to support them in an attuned and sensitive way. I am particularly interested and experienced in working with families where the child�s needs are �masked� and, as a result, the people around them need support in understanding this more clearly.

I am compassionate in my approach and will work with a family to develop a shared understanding of their child�s needs. We will work collaboratively in therapy and help you to develop the tools to manage the issues. I draw on the research evidence in the work that I do to ensure that my practice is up to date, but will also tailor it to the individual young person.
