I am an HCPC Registered Counselling Psychologist and I also trained as a cognitive behaviour and dialectical behavioural therapist (CBT and DBT). I have been working in mental health for 10 years within both NHS and private health care sectors.

I work in line with my values of openness, integrity, non-judgemental stance and positive regard. I have an interest in equality and diversity, which is considered in the work I do and reflected in my academic research. My experience enables me to offer effective outpatient, individualised, psychological care.

I treat a number of mental health disorders and I provide a neutral ground to individuals, families, and couples. My previous experience is in depression anxiety, equality, diversity and cultural considerations, LGBT+ relationships, body image and self-esteem.
