I have worked in psychology services since 2008 and as a Clinical Psychologist in highly specialist teams within the NHS since 2015. I have specialist experience in working with people living with physical health conditions, as well as working with people who are dealing with challenging life stressors.
I am qualified to use a number of therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness and Compassionate based approaches. As a Clinical Psychologist I have been trained to take an integrative approach, drawing on different therapeutic models. This allows me to tailor therapy to the specific needs and personal goals of my clients.
I believe that therapy should be an empowering process and value working in collaboration with my clients. I don’t view therapy as a place where you come to “be fixed” by your Clinical Psychologist. Rather I view it as a place where we work together to understand your situation better and to equip you with the knowledge, tools and confidence to make changes that will allow you to move forward to a more fulfilling, value based life.
I know that coming to therapy can feel daunting, and I aim to create a warm, safe and relaxed environment to help you feel secure. I hope that we can work together, so that you are able to move towards your goals and what’s most important to you in your life.
