I consider myself a flexible, passionate, warmth and experienced psychologist who is willing to help people find their way to a more meaningful, valued life. I embrace strong values that guide me through my work as a clinical psychologist and counsellor. Values such as respect, support, commitment to the client, kindness and curiosity constitute my guiding principles in life. I strongly believe in the development of approaches that may have a positive influence on people's lives.
Areas of interest
I have experience in psychological assessment and treatment of clients with a range of psychological needs of a complex nature, including perfectionism, anxiety and depression, career dissatisfaction and work related stress, personality disorders, substances misuse , obsessive-compulsive disorder, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, body images issues, or long health conditions , amongst other issues.
I use mindfulness-based contextual behavioural therapies as my main approach with my clients.
I have advanced training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT); Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP) and Mindfulness.
