Hello and welcome to my site.
*I am currently taking on new assessments and one-off consultations only. All therapy spaces are booked. Availability is updated monthly so do check back. 20/8/18*
A Clinical Psychologist is a mental health professional who listens carefully and works together with clients as equals. We use knowledge of how humans adapt and cope with challenging situations to help to understand what has contributed to the current difficulties and how to move forwards.
My work draws from a range of specialist therapies that have strong research evidence. These include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for anxiety and depression and Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for post-traumatic stress.
I work with people who are navigating life’s ups and downs and those who have experienced longstanding difficulties. My practice includes working with adults, children and families and with professionals.
It is normal for people to feel anxiety or nervousness when thinking about discussing mental health or approaching a therapist. I believe in offering a highly personal service in a relaxed and non-judgmental environment.
After our initial discussion, and if you wish to continue, we will use our sessions together to work towards clearly defined goals that are tailored to your needs.
