About me

In my clinical experience, the majority of patients decide to see a therapist in order to access support, and develop insight and coping strategies in response to their current or previous life difficulties.

Deciding to see a therapist/ Clinical Psychologist, is not always an easy decision. It indicates a motivation to start addressing one, or more of the many issues that weigh on our well-being and sense of self.

I completed a doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Liverpool University and worked in the NHS seeing hospital patients whom had both psychological and physical challenges at that time. I hope that I provide a welcoming, supportive and helpful setting.

Areas of interest

My areas of interest and experience include working with adults experiencing anxiety and/ or depression, either as distinct or co-existing states.

Referrals frequently mention work related and/ or family relationship stress; coping with bereavement; coping with significant life changes, e.g.relationship issues; coping with on-going physical illness and the impact of this on psychological well-being. Intrusive anxiety and distressing thought patterns can interrupt sleep and impact on every day functioning.
