Counselling Psychologist

I am a HCPC registered and chartered Psychologist and a Research Associate. My professional training has allowed me to understand the human psyche from both a scientific and philosophical perspective, promoting the view of humans and their suffering, that steers away from over simplifying the human experience. Thus my clinical practice aims to honour one’s individual subjective experience and story, whilst working in an evidence based way to unearth cognitive and behavioural patterns which may have become increasingly embedded over time.

Throughout my clinical practice, particularly within the NHS, I became increasingly aware about the mind-body connection, in particular, the impact of stress, distress and trauma and how this can manifest in the body via physical health symptoms. Supporting a healthy connection, alliance and harmony between mind and body is an integral part of how I work therapeutically.

I have gained many years of experience in supporting individuals both as outpatients and inpatients across all ages including children, young people and adults who were facing psychological difficulties.  I have worked in a multitude of settings including within the NHS, private healthcare and forensic settings such as working as the lead ward psychologist in a secure inpatient settings at a psychiatric ward. Thus working with outpatients and inpatients has further skilled me providing consultation, supervision and guidance to extend my individual work to inform service protocols and good practice.

My experience includes providing specialist psychological assessments based upon the integration of complex psychological information from a variety of sources including neuropsychological tests, self-report measures, rating scales and semi structured interviews. All of which I discuss throughout the therapy process ensuring our work together in transparent and collaborative.

My clinical work also includes working with both couples and families. Systemic family therapy centres around the idea that changes within the family setup, roles and structure of the family, consequently create changes for members within the family, in particular, their sense of identity. With this in mind, I often integrate ideas from systemic family therapy in my practice to offer therapy and treatment which takes into account one’s family settings, relationships and particular context, since any individual personality change is likely to impact one’s relationship with others and vice versa.

My main theoretical orientations are Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), however depending on the individual goals of therapy, I also use Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Existential psychotherapy, Narrative therapy, Person Centred Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Systemic Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy.

Here is a list of difficulties I have worked extensively with:
