I am a Clinical Psychologist with 14 years of experience working in the NHS with people with mental health difficulties. I work with people with a range of difficulties including low mood, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, psychosis, difficulties associated with a diagnosis of a personality disorder, as well as other presentations. I have a lot of experience working with people with complex trauma. Whatever difficulties you are facing, I am happy to speak to you about whether I have the right expertise to support you. And if not, I will try and direct you to the most appropriate support.
I have training and experience in a variety of therapy approaches so we will talk about the right approach for you. This is based on the scientific research, but also on personal preference.
I take a compassionate approach to therapy, recognising that there are understandable reasons why you may be struggling. In therapy, we would work together to help understand your difficulties, where they have come from, and what may be keeping you stuck. We can then work towards making the changes you want in your life, to feel happier, more fulfilled, and to live a life aligned with your values.
I am an LGBTQ+ friendly therapist and have worked with many people from the LGBTQ+ community. I have an understanding of the impact discrimination and non-acceptance can have on mental health. I am also anti-racist in my practice. I know the damage that oppressive systems can and do cause and hope to offer a different experience to ones you may have had in the past.
