They are registered with several professional bodies, including the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), the British Psychological Society (BPS), as well as, BACP, UKCP and BABCP.

Please meet our team
I have worked in mental health since completing my undergraduate degree in Psychology in 2008, and I have worked as a chartered Clinical Psychologist since 2013. As well as working with Therapy Central I also hold a Team Lead position in the NHS for an adolescent DBT service. In my experience so far I have worked with individuals across the life span with a variety of difficulties, within various settings, including community settings, sexual health clinics and inpatient settings.
I have experience in working with a variety of mental health difficulties, including depression, various types of anxiety (including social anxiety, OCD and trauma/PTSD), emotion regulation difficulties (specifically experiencing intense emotions, such as shame, guilt, or anger), as well as other difficulties that can arise in life, such as relationship difficulties, bereavement and self-harm.
My main therapeutic orientations are Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT); I have also completed my training as an MBT (Mentalisation-based treatment) practitioner and EMDR (Eye movement and Desensitisation Reprocessing) practitioner, as well as gaining experience in working systemically with couples and families. As a result I am able to draw on a range of therapeutic models to select the one that is best suited to help the person I am working with acheive their goals for therapy.
As a practitioner I value the importance of offering therapies that are evidence-based and proven to help address the difficulties the person is bringing to therapy, as well as also valuing the importance of the therapeutic relationship as a tool in faciltiating change and progress in therapy. I believe these are both vital in helping a person get to where they want to be and to get the most out of therapy.

- Mood issues, such as Depression
- Panic Disorder
- Social Anxiety
- OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder)
- Specific Phobias
