Being honest about how we feel doesn't make us weak...
it makes us human
My style is warm, supportive, and compassionate. I provide a safe
and private space where you can discuss and explore your concerns without judgement.
My approach is integrated, which means I will tailor my approach to one most suited to you and the issues you want to work on.
The psychological approaches I use include:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness
Psychodynamic and Interpersonal Therapy
Humanistic and Person Centred Therapy
I have spent my entire life learning about why we as humans think, feel and act the way we do. An early curiosity lead me to study psychology, this curiosity evolved into a passion for helping others make sense of their own psychology resulting in my specialist training.
As a Counselling Psychologist, I have undergone extensive training in all areas of psychology and mental health and reached the 'gold standard' of accreditation by becoming Chartered by The British Psychological Society (BPS).The title of Chartered Psychologist is legally recognised and reflects only the highest standard of psychological knowledge and expertise.
I have also been awarded the title of Associate Fellow by The British Psychological Society (AFBPsS). This is a mark of experience, competence and reputation of psychological knowledge through the field
I am registered and entitled to practice as a Counselling Psychologist under the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC; the UKs regulator of all health care professionals).
I am bound by the highest standard of professional codes of practice and ethics (as set out by the BPS and HCPC), I attend regular supervision, and undertake professional development training to keep up to date with current thinking and research.
I hold professional liability insurance and I am fully checked by the Disclosure and Barring Service (previously known as CRB: the Criminal Records Bureau)
