I am a Clinical Psychologist and I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). I have worked in the NHS since 2011 and I have worked as a psychologist since 2015. I have experience of working with young people and adults who have suffered from a range of mental health difficulties across different community and hospital settings. Throughout my experience, I had regular training and a range of specialised supervision in different therapeutic approaches, for the purpose of professional development. I am currently working in the NHS, where I specialise in providing Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for adults with severe and enduring needs. I predominately help people with difficulties with low confidence, stress, depression, anxiety, trauma, and anger. In this role, I also provide training, consultation, support trainee psychologists, and contribute to service development by designing group therapy provisions.
At the heart of my approach is developing a trusting and supportive relationship. I have a warm, compassionate, and down to earth style. I use a range of evidence based therapeutic models to provide a personalised approach. These include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Mindfulness, Narrative Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy (SFT). These therapeutic models allow different ways to understand your difficulties and provide different coping strategies. I aim to use these to empower you to reach your goals.
