I work with adults, young people, couples and families who are experiencing distress. This could be distress arising from past experiences, recent events or stuck patterns of behaviour that keep you or your family from progressing. As a chartered clinical psychologist I am skilled and qualified to adapt evidence-based psychological therapy to suit your particular circumstances. As well as the UK, I have worked overseas in Africa and Asia for the UN and charities working on mental health, and bring this diverse experience and cultural knowledge to my work. I aim to work along side you to help you understand yourself better, the patterns of behaviour that no longer serve your best interests and introduce skills to help you to change these behaviours to have a more fulfilling life.
