I am a Senior Clinical Psychologist, Chartered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). I completed my Post Graduate Diploma in Interpersonal Psychotherapy at University College London and my three-year doctoral training at Salomons, Canterbury Christchurch University.
Prior to private practice I have worked for several NHS services, including Great Ormond Street hospital, Grenfell trauma service, Chelsea & Westminster Burns service to name a few. Alongside my current private practice I also work part-time for the NHS in the paediatric psychology team at Basingstoke hospital.
In my private practice I offer expert assessment and treatment of childen, adolescents and families across a wide range of developmental, emotional and behavioural difficulties. I also provide expert assessment and treatment of adults with a range of psychological difficulties that result from the pressures and daily demands of life, such as stress, depression and anxiety.

I have over ten years of experience working with a range of psychological difficulties, working in schools, child and adolescent mental health services, adult mental health, learning disability, inpatient services, community neuro-rehabilitation and national specialist treatment centres.
My approach is integrative and person centred, using a range of models to inform my assessment, formulation and treatment planning with each client, providing evidence-based approaches to suit individual needs. I have full accreditation in providing Interpersonal Psychotherapy for adolescents suffering from depression. I am also trained in and qualified to provide Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy (Level 3), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), systemic, narrative, psychodynamic and mindfulness-based approaches. I have experience of offering these treatment approaches to adults, children, including looked-after and adopted children, and their families, as well as to groups.
