I am a highly experienced Clinical Psychologist with experience of working in the NHS and private practice for over 10 years. I have specialist training in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy and specialise in trauma-focused and trauma-informed therapy. I practice using an integrative approach, drawing from a range of therapeutic skills and concepts to be able to be responsive to the needs of my clients.

I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC - check the register HERE) and EMDR UK. I am also a member of the BPS Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors (RAPPS), having completed additional training in clinical supervision.

I have my own lived experience of mental health difficulties and worked as a director of in2gr8mentalhealth CIC between 2020 and 2022. 

I can offer therapy for a range of mental health difficulties and can offer short-term and long-term therapy depending on your needs and preferences.

I am particularly passionate working with people from the LGBTQI+ community and/or mental health professionals with their own lived experience of mental health difficulties.

Working Effectively with Trauma and PTSD

I am a warm and understanding HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist. I have worked across multiple NHS mental health settings with people experiencing a range of difficulties. I understand that anybody can experience periods of distress and life can throw challenges that are difficult to navigate. Some of the issues I have supported people with include low mood, depression, anxiety, panic, phobias, psychosis, low self-esteem, insomnia, trauma, interpersonal issues, experiences of abuse, grief, loss, drug and alcohol problems, emotional regulation difficulties, and issues around identity. 

I offer a non-judgemental, compassionate, and confidential space where we can work together to understand what has brought you to therapy and find ways of moving forward. I provide both short-term and long-term therapy, and I am trained to draw on a number of therapeutic models depending on your preferences and what you would like help with. It's ok if you do not know exactly what you would like to address as discovering this can be part of the process.
