About me

I worked in the NHS for over 20 years and now have my own independent practice. I have worked in a range of mental health services with adults and adolescents, in London, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk. I have longstanding experience of working therapeutically with individuals over 13-years of age and their families, using a range of psychological approaches. My priority in all therapeutic work is to establish a safe, warm and respectful therapeutic space.

Areas of interest

Mood difficulties; impact of traumatic events; stress, anger and emotional regulation problems; interpersonal and relationship difficulties; low self-esteem and low self-worth.

I work with older children over 13-years, and adults.

I use a range of psychological approaches, including cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), cognitive analytic therapy (CAT), exposure and response prevention (ERP); behavioural activation (BA); trauma-focused CBT (TF-CBT).
