I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist, which means I have completed a first degree in Psychology and a doctorate in Clinical Psychology. I have worked with both adults and children experiencing a range of types of psychological distress in both statutory and voluntary services. I currently work part-time in the NHS and part-time in private practice.
I have experience working with adults and children on difficulties such as anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, low mood, low self-esteem, post traumatic stress disorder, work stress, concerns relating to visible difference, emotional effects of ill health, relational difficulties, fertility difficulties, birth trauma, parent support and grief.
I have highly specialist experience working with adults and children who have been bereaved, as well as in offering support to parents around issues such as sleep and challenging behaviour and in working with children and young people.
My approach to therapy is integrative, meaning I draw upon a range of psychological theories including cognitive behavioural therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, attachment theory and narrative therapy. Whatever approach we take, I work in a collaborative way and so we will work together to find the path our sessions need to take to support you to get to where you want to be.
Above all else I believe effective therapy depends upon a strong and secure therapeutic relationship and therefore my primary aim is in ensuring that you feel comfortable and safe talking with me. I recognise that coming to see a therapist for the first time can be very daunting and so I strive to make it as supportive an experience for you as I can.
