My Experience

I have worked as a psychologist for over fifteen years across both the NHS and independent practice. I completed my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology with the University of East London in 2015.

Through my experiences I have had lots of opportunities to work together psychologically with children, young people and adults. I work individually and with couples, families, teams and organisations, e.g. schools. Some of the reasons my clients come to therapy (and which I am experienced in working with) include:

Mental health and wellbeing difficulties such as depression and anxiety disorders as well as challenges with confidence, self-esteem and stress.

Chronic health conditions (e.g. chronic pain, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome).

Neurodevelopmental conditions (e.g. Autism Spectrum Conditions, ADHD)- I am experienced in offering assessment and intervention e.g. post diagnostic support, liaison with schools.
Adjustment to relationship changes and life challenges, for example through bereavement, separation, fostering and adoption.

I also work regularly with educational establishments, including schools and Universities, offering liaison, consultation, supervision and training individually and in groups.

My Values

If you choose to work with me, then my hope is that you will find a space for us to work in partnership, focused on what is important to you and your psychological wellbeing. My clients tell me I am an approachable and friendly psychologist (and person), who can create a safe space to talk and think about things that can at times be hard to do so. I aim to work in a way that positions you as the expert on your own life and me as a professional who brings with them a “psychological lens” of skills, ideas and expertise that I have gained through clinical training, work experiences and the evidence based psychological theories and therapies that I am trained in. I value opportunities to work flexibly with clients and their wider system and endeavour to always hold in mind what is going on for the people I am working with in their lives and how this may be influencing what they are seeking support for.

The Models I Work With

The psychological theories and therapies I am trained to offer, and work flexibly with to suit your needs include:

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), ACT for adolescents (DNA-V) and Mindfulness approaches
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Attachment-based family therapies including Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP)
Narrative Therapy and Systemic Approaches
Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET)
Solution Focused Therapy (SFT)

Clinic Information

I currently hold a walk and talk clinic in High Wycombe, for face to face appointments, and offer virtual appointments. I work with children and adults.
