LET'S CONNECT

  My ethos

We are all unique and everyone faces difficulties at times. Working at your pace, we build a trusting relationship so that together, we can learn about all aspects of your life, not just ‘the problems’ you are facing.

I will help you break free from self-limiting beliefs created by your past, learn new ways to love, laugh and enjoy your present day, so that you can re-connect with yourself and others in a more meaningful and balanced way.

 

You deserve to  thrive, not just survive. Helping you to build the life you want and deserve.

Hi, I'm Jade

Senior Clinical Psychologist

I started my private practice because I am extremely passionate about providing timely and effective clinical psychology services and I genuinely love my job. I enjoy connecting with people and enabling them to thrive from difficult life experiences, to enjoy life to the fullest. I  feel incredibly lucky to help so many people, from so many walks of life.

I used to live and work in London, across various NHS hospitals and community services, including Great Ormond Street hospital, Chelsea & Westminster burns unit and the Grenfell trauma service, working with children, adolescents and adults alike. These varied roles have given me extensive experience to understand that everyone has their own story and the importance of being truly heard. I believe that no mental health difficulty is born out of nowhere – these difficulties are often the result of our tricky but clever mind trying its best to overcome adversity and difficult life events.

My Approach

My Clinical Psychology doctorate and further post-graduate trainings have all been grounded in the best scientific evidence-base. Using a collaborative approach, the main psychological models I use in therapy are EMDR and Cognitive Behavioural Therapies (CBT) – including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT).

My extensive experience and knowledge enables me to provide you with a holistic and individualized treatment plan to suit your needs. During therapy you will discover new insights about yourself, others and the world around you.

You will create a bespoke ‘tool box’ of strategies for you to use in between sessions and for the rest of your life. These will help you stay on track and enable you to keep striving for what you want and to manage difficult thoughts and feelings that may arise along the way.
 

I CAN'T PROMISE TO SOLVE ALL YOUR PROBLEMS BUT I CAN PROMISE THAT YOU DO NOT HAVE TO FACE THEM ALONE! TOGETHER WE CAN BUILD YOUR LIFE, YOUR WAY!

MORE ABOUT JADE

When I am not working, I spend my time walking, riding, cycling and just generally being outdoors, sometimes relaxing, drinking coffee with friends.

I grew up in the south of England in a big family. I am inquisitive by nature and coming from a medical family I was always the one asking ‘… yes but why?’

 

Becoming a Clinical Psychologist and dedicating my working life to helping others better understand themselves, finding ways to move beyond the traumas of their past, in order to build a better life, has been my best decision so far.

Now living in Surrey with my two spirited children, I am finding my way through the ups and downs of parenthood. Like you, I have an inner critic telling me off at times, giving me feelings of not being good enough. I have learnt ways to manage my thoughts and feelings, in order to live a perfectly imperfect life -  these techniques I could teach you too.
