Chartered Counselling Psychologist, 

Psychotherapist & Supervisor

Helping Clients:

Within my clinical work I have specialised in working with people with depression and anxiety-based difficulties. Compassion, empathy, and respect for a person’s unique experience is at the heart of my approach. I have worked with hundreds of clients over the years, helping them to understand the underlying issues at the root of a problem, identify the things that are keeping the problem going, and work in collaboration to make changes that address and resolve the difficulty. My aim is always to work together with people, to help them to make changes that improve their lives, and to focus on ways to ensure that improvements are sustained long after therapy ends.

As a psychologist with additional specialist training in a variety of psychological therapies, I can offer a choice of therapeutic approaches well suited to your individual goals. The therapies that I specialise in have a strong scientific evidence base, are recommended by the National Institute for Health & Care Excellence (NICE), and include more recent psychological research developments. NICE is the same organisation that advise the UK NHS in all its treatments and medicines.

Helping Professionals:

My supervision experience has ranged from supporting therapists and psychologists in training, as well as other supervisors and senior therapists, counsellors and psychologists. I am proud to have supported many therapists to complete their training. I have worked with therapists to develop their career into more specialist therapy skills and/or supervision and leadership roles. I am passionate about high quality therapy and supporting other psychological practitioners to feel confident and excited about the therapy that they offer to their clients.
