HCPC registered Contact


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:

  • BSc (Hons) Psychology, Physical and Mental Health, University of Reading
  • Postgrad. Cert in Evidence Based Psychological Therapies, University of Reading
  • Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. PsychD. University of Surrey

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.
