About me

I founded Thriving Teen in 2021 and aim to provide friendly, high-quality support to young people and their families. I've been working with teenagers for about 14 years, as an educator before I became a clinical psychologist.

I am trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches, including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and others that are recommended by national guidelines for the treatment of common mental health problems. These guidelines are based on what works for many people, not all, and the benefit of being a clinical psychologist is that I can develop an approach specific to the young person I'm working with based on evidence, theory and my clinical experience.

My passion is for understanding how our early experiences, especially those in relationships, shape our view of the world, and how this is reflected at the level of the brain (this is often called attachment science or interpersonal neurobiology). I'm also keen to share psychological knowledge as widely as possible and am a regular contributor to the Let's All Talk Mental Health series of expert seminars on the topics of self harm and emotional dysregulation.

I am a chartered member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and a member of the Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health (ACAMH).
