I was first drawn to psychology by an interest in why people suffer and what it means to live well. I have lived and worked both in the UK and internationally, and for the past 5 years I have practiced primarily in clinical NHS settings, supporting people with a wide range of mental health difficulties. I have experience working with adults, older adults, families and children. As a Clinical Psychologist I draw from different models of therapy as appropriate to the needs of my client, including cognitive-behavioural and systemic therapies. I would suggest that therapy can help people to gain insight into their patterns of thinking, feeling and doing, and the contexts from which these emerge. Change then comes from making choices to behave differently in line with our values and a more flexible understanding of ourselves and the world.
I aim to bring warmth, honesty and courage in the space that I offer my clients. I would be very happy to hear from you if you are considering therapy, or want to explore what this might mean for you.
