About me

I am an experienced Clinical Psychologist who has completed extensive training in supporting clients with a range of difficulties that impact on their mental health and overall wellbeing. I am trained in various evidence based therapeutic models and tailor therapy to the individual. No client is the same, I pride myself on getting to know each client and offering support specific to each client's goals.

We live in a fast paced world that comes with many challenges and responsibilities, this can lead us to feel in a constant state of overwhelm. When we feel overwhelmed, our minds can become foggy and it can be difficult to think clearly. This can lead us to feel like we are surviving each day, with lack of direction and little reserves to cope with any additional stress that comes our way. I hear from many clients at the start of therapy that they feel stuck, lost and unsatisfied by life, and they do not know how to move forward.

Through therapy I can support you to develop a strong sense of who you are and what is important to you, help you identify the barriers and obstacles that get in the way of you living the life you want to lead, and assist you in developing the knowledge and skills to cope with the inevitable difficult times.

I am a HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist and have worked for many years in various roles within the NHS. I have worked in specialist health psychology services including: cancer services, spinal injury services and bariatric services.
