About me

I am a warm, friendly and open Clinical Psychologist with over 16 years of experience working psychologically in NHS mental health settings.

I offer a safe space to help you find ways to cope with the inevitable suffering we face in life, and move towards living a more meaningful life. My work primarily involves offering individuals the time to feel listened to and heard, to explore and reconnect to our authentic inner self that may be deeply over-shadowed by fear, memories of traumatic experiences, self-doubt, difficult thoughts, worries, sadness, loss of motivation and/or feeling stuck in life. This may be through a number of methods but often involves reconnecting to our inner needs, fundamental values and deep emotional states that may have been repressed, avoided or pushed aside.

I offer both short and long term work; this can include formulating and understanding your current situations or struggles, offering ways of coping with challenges, healing trauma, reconnecting with your values and helping to work through barriers in order to create a meaningful and joyful life.

I have worked for over 16 years in specialist NHS services with young people and adults experiencing complex anxiety, depression and trauma. I am trained in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I am registered with the HCPC (Health Professionals Council). I am also trained in mindfulness-based therapy and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique, AKA tapping).

Alongside CBT and more traditional ways of working, I also offer the opportunity to work within spiritual dimensions of psychotherapy, incorporating eastern ideas and transpersonal psychology.  I can offer sessions for people trying to integrate psychedelic experiences and I am also currently training in transformational breathwork.

I am happy to speak on the phone for a free 20 minute chat to explore your needs and whether I could provide the support you are looking for at this time.
