I am a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and a registered Practitioner Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
My qualifications are:
I have experience of working with adults and young people supporting them with a range of difficulties including depression, anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, relationships, loss and adjustment.
I aim to work with clients to develop a helpful understanding of their difficulties from which we can identify ways to work towards improving their emotional wellbeing. I believe in the importance of a safe, honest therapeutic relationship that supports clients to share their difficulties and make the changes that are important to them.
My main therapy model is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) however I draw on other approaches depending on each client’s individual needs and goals. These include Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and systemic approaches.
Alongside my private practice, I work in the NHS with people with learning disabilities. I have links to several universities as a supervisor and mentor for students on doctoral training courses.
