About me

Everyone faces challenges at certain times in their lives and can benefit from the opportunity to talk things through in a confidential and supportive space. As an approachable and skilled practitioner, I can help you to feel heard, gain understanding, build confidence and skills and find solutions and new perspectives to the difficulties you face.

I am a Counselling Psychologist with over 15 years of experience working with adults in mental health settings in the NHS and in independent practice. In my previous role in the NHS, I was a Principal Psychologist in a large community mental health team. I work with people with difficulties including depression, anxiety, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Health and Social Anxiety, Bi-polar Disorder and a range of other difficulties.

I am a highly experienced Psychologist and as such, am able to draw on a range of skills and evidenced-based, NICE recommended therapeutic approaches to best meet your needs. I have particular specialism in Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness based approaches. I am also trained to provide EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) which is of benefit to people who have suffered traumas including people with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Throughout my career, I have helped a great many people who have struggled with a wide range of mental health difficulties or who have needed a supportive space to work through a particularly challenging time. I would be very happy to talk with you about how I might be able to support you.
