I am a passionate Doctor of Clinical Psychology and have worked 16 years in mental health services working with adults, children, young people and families. I enjoy getting to know individuals and finding what works well for them. I do this through using evidence-based therapeutic approaches and tailor my intervention to each individual.
The therapeutic approaches that I draw upon include cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), systemic family therapy, cognitive analytic therapy (CAT) as well as developmental and attachment theories. My therapeutic approach is client-centred, non-judgemental and compassionate which allows me to provide a safe and supportive space for clients to work on achieving meaningful change.
My areas of interest include mental health difficulties such as anxiety, panic, low mood, phobias, low self-esteem, anger and OCD. I understand that difficulties can be experienced in relation to life events such as pressures attached to attending school, in the perinatal period, relationship changes and work pressures as well as in relation to difference including neurodiversity and gender identity. I work with clients to explore the impact of these events on them as an individual or as a family.
I am registered with HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council), which upholds high standards in professional codes of practice, qualification and ongoing training.”
