Hi, I am a Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Chartered with the British Psychological Society and registered with the HCPC. I work part time with the NHS, leading a service for people with physical health difficulties.

I like to work collaboratively with people to support them with their difficulties.

I use a variety of different models and ways of working, according to what you are experiencing, your goals, strengths and preferences. Ultimately, I believe that helping people to feel safe and building trust is the key to any psychological approach working.

I can offer brief solution focused therapy, Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT), CBT, Mindfulness based exercises, relational, compassion focused, clinical hypnotherapy, EMDR, body therapies, such as yoga for trauma, and 'Brainspotting.' These can be integrated appropriately according to your needs and wishes.

Some approaches are more difficult via online rather than face-face but can still achieve positive results.

We can work together to identify the problem during an assessment initially, and decide which approach/set of approaches may help.

I am skilled at working with people with multiple problems which may all interrelate, for example, physical health conditions and the impact on the rest of your life.

Initially, we will need to talk about whatever difficulty you are having, how this is affecting your life, any ideas you may have about where this has come from and what you hope to gain from therapy. This will start to form a psychological assessment which helps you and me to formulate what the problem is and how to address it.

I will ask about your interests and strengths and any preferences regarding therapy that you may have. What's worked before, what's not.

I will want to keep you safe and take therapy at a pace that works for you.

If we are planning to meet more than once, I may set you some tasks to do between sessions which we can then talk about next time.
