About me

Working with adults and older teens, I specialise in helping people cope at key life stages and with significant and distressing events. I offer expert psychological therapy aimed at helping people negotiate the human challenges we can all face – complex life decisions and transitions, managing stress and burnout, experience of abuse and trauma, conflict and separation, parenting and family life, physical illness, ageing, grief and loss – to name but a few.

I am trained and experienced in a wide range of evidence-based therapies and treatments for psychological and mental health conditions across the lifespan. This enables me to select the right approach for each person. Specialist training includes Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), EMDR or Eye-Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing, and parenting and family therapies and interventions.

Being a Clinical Psychologist means I am regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council and a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) registered as a Chartered Psychologist. I am regularly supervised in my clinical practice, engage in continual professional development and adhere to the highest standards of ethical and professional conduct.
