I am a Clinical Psychologist, specialising in working with children, young people and families. I am a registered member of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and chartered by the British Psychological Society (BPS).
My qualifications are:
My approach is integrative, recognising the importance of context and relationships, working collaboratively with each individual and their family with an aim of achieving meaningful change.
I am able to use a range of therapeutic approaches in my work, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Systemic Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I have experience of working with a range of difficulties across the lifespan. My areas of interest include physical health, anxiety, self-esteem, behaviour, development, body image, appearance and visible difference.
I have worked in an NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) in Central London, which included working in schools, children’s centres, GP practices and a Social Care Fostering team. Between 2011 and 2018 I worked at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford supporting children and families attending specialist surgery services. I now work solely in private practice.
