About me

I work with adults of working age and older adults. Alongside my work within the NHS, I set up in private practice in 2010. I have often been approached for therapy on the basis of recommendations from past clients, other Psychologists and Psychiatrists.

I offer treatments based on psychological needs which are identified during an in-depth assessment. I work collaboratively with clients to help them understand how their problem has developed, and factors that are maintaining it. The type of therapy (CBT, CAT etc.) is dependent on the needs identified and is tailored to the individual. Thus, treatment might include dealing with past experiences or developing skills to manage current or future challenges. As well as providing a flexible approach, I am able to adapt therapy according to the feedback a client gives in order to ensure efficacy and successful outcomes.
