About me

I am a Registered Clinical Psychologist and a Chartered Psychologist, who is experienced in working with adults and young adults. I have worked within a number of NHS settings and private settings over the past 19 years.

I provide assessment and therapeutic intervention for a range of common psychological issues including depression, anxiety, ocd, trauma and interpersonal/ emotional difficulties. I specialise in trauma, PTSD and working with adults with emotional/interpersonal problems linked to childhood. In addition I specialise in the area of perinatal mental health.

I utilise several therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing (EMDR), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT).
