Areas of specialism

I have worked therapeutically with young people (aged over 11 years) for over 9 years and previously worked in a secondary school

Alongside this, I have worked with adults in a variety of therapeutic settings


As a Counselling Psychologist, I have been trained in a variety of psychological theories and practices. This training, along with my clinical experience, allows me to be flexible and tailor my approach for each individual client depending on their needs and preferences.

I place great importance on the therapeutic relationship and view therapy as a collaboration between myself and my clients. I strive to create a warm, non-judgemental and safe space, where we can work together to build understanding and finds ways to move forward.


I am qualified Counselling Psychologist, registered with the Health Care Professionals Council and accredited with the British Psychological Society. I have also completed post-qualification training in EMDR.

I have over 9 years experience in a variety of settings, including a charity, the NHS, a secondary school and private practice. This has involved working with both adults and young people (aged 11 and over).
