I am a committed Clinical Psychologist who is passionate about applying psychological knowledge to influence health and wellbeing. I have worked within a range of NHS settings with adults, as well as children, young people and their families. I currently specialise in working with people living with long term health conditions, working in a flexible and holistic way which considers the biological, psychological and social impact upon both the person and their wider family system.
I recognise that thinking about starting therapy can be daunting and that it may feel difficult to open up about personal matters. I place the therapeutic relationship at the centre of my practice and aim to provide a warm and collaborative space where I can work alongside you in an integrative way, carefully tailoring our work to your unique needs and goals. I aim to work with you to explore and make sense of your difficulties and experiences and to empower you to learn new skills and ways of coping, to facilitate change that is meaningful for you.
I work within evidence based approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness. I aim to support people to explore how thoughts and feelings interact with physical responses in the body, in order to gain skills to manage difficult emotions and experiences.
I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and British Psychological Society (BPS).
