About me

I am passionate about bringing Psychology out of the clinic and textbooks and into everyday life. There are so many evidence-based ideas that can be genuinely transformational, and I am on a mission to positively change the lives of children, teens and parents, one family at a time.

My approach to working with clients is one that involves warmth, a genuine curiosity and interest to understand their unique story and to provide help that fits each unique individual client I work with. By providing a safe and secure place for clients, I find that we quickly build trust and an openness that encourages exploration of what causes that feeling of being stuck with an issue or problem, and out of that the way forward becomes clearer.

I am a qualified Clinical Psychologist, registered with the Health Care and Professions Council (HCPC) and a chartered member of the British Psychological Society. I trained at the University of Nottingham and practiced initially within the NHS, before moving into independent practice. I have completed further training in Trauma treatments - Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Introduction to Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Treatment and Education of Autistic and Related Communication Handicapped Children (TEACCH) and assessment of Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) using the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule - Second Edition (ADOS 2).
