I am a Registered Clinical Psychologist with sixteen years’ experience of working with clients to improve their mental wellbeing.
I am a member of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and I was trained and employed within the NHS for many years as a Specialist Clinical Psychologist.
I work with individuals as an expert in treating anxiety and depression as well as other mental health conditions and difficulties. I also have an interest in ME/CFS and working with couples/ individuals struggling with infertility, stopping over eating, recovery from trauma and relationship breakdown. I am also a published author in psychological research.
What is a Clinical Psychologist?
As a Clinical Psychologist, I am trained in multiple types of therapy providing me with the advantage of tailoring therapy to match the problems and goals that you bring to therapy.
My core approach embodies values of connection, compassion, respect and support. I offer a practical, clear plan towards recovery and wellness.
Through guided discovery I would work alongside you by applying my psychological understanding to your life struggles. Through this approach, you would gain insight into how to heal and will be given practical tools to empower your recovery.
I draw from a multitude of different therapeutic approaches all outlined in the NICE guidelines including CBT, EMDR, Compassion Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, ACT as well as many other approaches.
My special interests are in treating anxiety, depression, food problems (over eating/ obesity), chronic fatigue/M.E and fertility counselling.
