About me

I am a Clinical Psychologist working with adults of all ages. I offer assessments, consultation, therapy and supervision.

I am experienced in working with a wide range of mental health difficulties including anxiety, OCD, depression, psychosis, complex trauma, "personality disorder", ongoing difficulties in relationships, and addictions. I have a particular interest in autism and ADHD, and often work with people to support them through the impact of late diagnosis.
I have expertise in supporting people through life transitions (e.g. bereavement, "empty nest", retirement, and adjustment to dementia or terminal illness). I also work with people who are looking to feel happier, more confident, more decisive, or who simply wish to get to know themselves better.

I am integrative in my approach, which means I use a number of models depending on factors including the evidence base, your previous experiences, and your preferences. These include CBT, EMDR, ACT, narrative therapy, and exposure therapy. I work collaboratively with clients to build a shared understanding (or formulation), which becomes the basis for an individually tailored approach.

I believe that every mental health problem can be understood, and that things really can get better. Nobody is beyond help, and there is always good reason for hope. Likewise, even a great life can be better still! I look forward to hearing what you would like to gain from therapy. Please get in touch if you have any questions, or to arrange an appointment.
