My Services:
We may find it helpful to talk problems through with someone close to us, but sometimes friends and family can not help and we need to speak to a professional therapist. I will spend time talking with you to understand your difficulties and to help you identify the roots of your problem and identify what you want to change in your life. In doing so we can find a way to work together to help you to reach your goals. ​I have worked with issues surrounding, anxiety, depression, trauma (including PTSD), low self esteem, stress, emotional management difficulties, phobias, OCD, relationship difficulties, and grief.
My Approach Many clients I work with struggle to be kind to themselves. I work from the basis that helping people develop self-kindness will guide them towards ways to manage their suffering. I understand that coming to therapy may cause worry and uncertainty. I will be compassionate and non judgemental, giving you the safety to be open about your concerns My Experience I began my practice in 2001 and became a Chartered Psychologist in 2005. I have worked in a variety of settings including the NHS, private hospitals, HM Prison and Probation Service, universities, and in the community. My experience includes psychological therapy, forensic risk assessment, clinical supervision,  staff welfare, line management, research and consultancy projects. I am also an academic supervisor for Forensic Psychologists in Training studying at Cardiff Metropolitan University Through my experience I have helped people address:

  • Anxiety, depression, low self esteem, stress, emotional management difficulties
  • The experience of trauma including sexual, physical, emotional abuse and neglect, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Phobias
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

  • Understanding personality disorder diagnosis
  • Coping with and processing grief

The work I offer is based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy.
