About Me

From my career in the NHS, I am experienced in working with people at all stages of life, including young people and adults. I’m particularly interested in helping people to live meaningful lives whilst living with chronic illnesses, including ‘medically unexplained symptoms’. Having also worked in business and large organisations, I support people experiencing stress and sleep problems connected to their working lives. I have taught across a number of universities, including teaching trainee psychologists as a Senior Lecturer.

Drawing on a number of evidence-based approaches I tailor therapy to suit your needs and goals. These approaches include cognitive-behaviour therapy (CBT), mindfulness, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and compassionate mind approaches, as well as considering how people relate to each other (psychodynamic) and within friendships, relationships and families.

I will work with you to understand difficulties and distress, how these have come about and what is keeping them going.
