I have fourteen years of professional experience within both the NHS and the independent sector working with children, adults and older adults with a wide range of presenting problems. These include; various anxiety disorders (panic, social anxiety, phobias, health anxiety and generalised anxiety), depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), trauma and post trauma stress disorder (PTSD), self-harm, eating disorders and body image issues, psychosis, personality disorders and emotional regulation difficulties, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), learning disabilities, attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), challenging behaviours, medically unexplained symptoms and physical health conditions.
I have clinical expertise in assessing and offering a wide range of evidence-based psychological therapies including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT), Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT), Mindfulness, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR) as well as Exploratory Therapy. I have a warm, empathic and friendly approach. I believe that my clients are the experts of their unique experiences and therefore I always aim to work collaboratively with them. This also ensures that they feel safe, supported and understood. I work in an integrative way, drawing upon various therapies so that I can help facilitate clients to use what is most effective and meaningful for them.
In addition to therapy I also provide the following; cognitive assessments for learning disabilities, ASD or ADHD, expert witness services as well as clinical supervision for various professionals and trainees.
I am a Chartered Member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and I am registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC). I am also a qualified EMDR Therapist.
