I am a clinical psychologist with over 10 years experience in treating adults with a range of conditions including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, social phobia, panic attacks, grief, adjustment disorder, and interpersonal issues. I have a particular interest in working with those with anxiety issues, trauma, and perinatal and postnatal depression. Working with people from a range of backgrounds and cultures is a highlight of my work.
I work with clients in a person-centred approach using a range of interventions depending on what best suits the client I am treating. I draw from evidence based therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, neuropsychotherapy approaches, mindfulness, solution focused, interpersonal therapy and positive psychology.
My approach is empathic, supportive and down to earth. I like to celebrate the individuality of my clients and their personalities, and apply therapeutic approaches with creativity, flexibility and humour. I provide a safe therapeutic environment where clients are able to open up and gain the most out of their therapy experience and ultimately improve their quality of life.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my husband, three children, two cats and a dog, watching my children play sport and dreaming about the days when I used to be able to play myself!
