About me

I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS), Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the Association for Contextual Behavioural Science (ACBS).
Whilst working with adults with a range of difficulties, my extensive experience is working with clients diagnosed as having a psychosis or bipolar disorder; where people may experience unique sensations and have strong beliefs and emotions that others around them do not share. I have also received specialist training regarding working with people with issues with Substance Misuse. Psychology can help make sense of experiences and help you and your family to develop adaptive ways not just to cope and avoid relapse, but to live well alongside experiences. In sessions we work towards your own recovery; to reduce your distress and help you live the life you want.
Individual sessions, Behavioural Family Therapy (BFT) and Group interventions are offered from an evidence based CBT approach. I will work with you to collaboratively develop your own unique understanding of what causes you distress; its origins, current triggers, what maintains it and your strengths and resources to cope. CBT aims to explore unhelpful cycles in thoughts, feelings, physical sensations and behaviours and identify practical ways to change these patterns to improve your state of mind.
Working under the umbrella of CBT I specialise in using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT – pronounced ‘Act’). This is a mindfulness-based approach using metaphors and exercises alongside behavioural interventions guided by your own values. Mindfulness helps us to become more aware of the present; so that we can appreciate the things we take for granted. Mindfulness also helps us to gain perspective on our thoughts, so see them as thoughts and not facts, which frees us up to make more objective choices about what we want to do, rather than going along blindly (often round in circles) on autopilot.
