Please meet our team
I am a Counselling Psychologist registered with the HCPC and BPS. I am also an Integrative Psychotherapist registered with the BACP. I am passionate about supporting people through their journeys in life. I believe each person is unique and I aim to tailor my therapeutic approach to meet the needs of the individual. I strive to create a collaborative, open and safe space for you to explore your lives and the different opportunities that are available to you.
I have worked with people from a diverse range of backgrounds. My experience comes from working within the NHS, charity organisations, university counselling services and private practice. I have trained in several therapeutic approaches such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Person-centred, Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) and Mindfulness. I have worked with adults facing a variety of mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, work and study related stress, social anxiety, bereavement, health related difficulties, relationship difficulties and personality disorders to name a few.
Therapy can help with a variety of issues that people might find themselves having difficulties with like anxiety, depression, stress, confidence and self-esteem, loss, trauma, and self-development to name a few. We will work together to establish your goals for therapy and the best way to proceed in working towards them. I enjoy supporting people in transforming their thoughts and perceptions, evolving in terms of the way they approach their lives and discovering their authentic selves so to lead a productive and meaningful life.
