About me

I am a consultant clinical psychologist with 20 years NHS experience. I left the NHS in 2014 to start my own private practice.

I offer compassionate, evidence-based, therapeutic assessment and therapy. I have a wealth of experience including doctoral and substantial post-doctoral training and can draw on a wide range of different therapeutic models and techniques. As a result I am able to tailor a treatment package to your specific needs. Where there are different treatment options I will discuss these with you to help you make an informed decision about what will best suit you.

I have experience helping people deal with most of the difficulties that life can throw at them.

Appointments are offered online and face-to-face in Cowbridge and central Swansea.
