About me

Since starting my undergraduate psychology degree in 1994, I have spent my life studying and working as a psychologist, firstly as a researcher and then as a clinician. I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist with extensive experience across a range of areas of mental health specialising in health psychology and adult mental health. I have worked with hundreds of clients of all ages with a range of emotional difficulties including anxiety, depression, work-related stress, health anxiety, low self-esteem, chronic pain, phobias and emotion-regulation difficulties.

I work predominantly within the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy model but draw upon other models including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Compassion-based approaches. Where helpful I incorporate mindfulness within this work which is informed by my own meditative practice of over 10 years.

My aim is to offer warmth and compassion with a view to creating an open and trusting relationship with my clients. This means being alongside others within their distress and supporting them to find meaningful alternative ways to live their life that will lead to greater fulfilment. I have found psychological therapy can support this process by providing a safe and hopeful place for people to explore how they would like to be in the wider world. I believe in working together with clients combining my experience and training with their expertise of themselves and their lives.

I completed my B.Sc. and Ph.D. in Psychology at Cardiff University before being awarded a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology by the University of Exeter. In addition to my clinical work, I have conducted psychological research for over 20 years much of which has been published in international scientific journals. My teaching career has included undergraduate and postgraduate teaching at Cardiff University, Bath University and the University of Manchester.
