As a Clinical Psychologist I am committed to helping adults, young people and families achieve their goals and find healing within a safe environment. I specialise in helping people who experience intense anxiety and one of my greatest passions is helping people heal from the invisible wounds often caused by trauma or difficult life events.
Unprocessed trauma frequently co-exists alongside symptoms of anxiety, OCD, depression, stress or burnout. These symptoms often lead to restrictive psychological obstacles to you enjoying your life, such as avoidance, relationship difficulties and social isolation. Getting to the root cause of your difficulties and not just treating the symptoms will provide you with effective and lasting relief.
Together we will develop a greater understanding of yourself, your relationships and your values, and ultimately help you heal from the traumas of your past. We will help you become unstuck and move toward living a more balanced and fulfilling life - creating the life you want and deserve!
+ Help for Adults
The individual therapy I provide offers you a safe, confidential and calming space to understand and process distress and difficult life experiences. You will learn to manage difficult feelings, such as anxiety, shame, and low mood.
You will develop ways to become unstuck from negative thoughts, self-critical beliefs and develop a more confident self, so you can connect with the people who matter the most to you. Together we will help you build a more fulfilling life!
+ Help for Parents
Our traumas that remain unhealed in this generation can unintentionally be passed on to the next. The parent-child relationship can often trigger difficult early experiences we may have had ourselves as a child. Parents’ emotional difficulties, if left unsupported can affect their child’s emotional, physical and psychological wellbeing.
We are biologically hard-wired to need others and to need help at times – you are not alone! Engaging in therapy for yourself, to help you find the healing you deserve, will unequivocally help your child. It starts with us – the parents – to be the best version of ourselves, to model to our children it is okay not to be okay, but most importantly that we can ask for and receive the help we deserve.
+ Help for Adolescents
Being an adolescent can be challenging at times, with increased school pressures, relationship difficulties, trying to discover who you are and who you want to be. Feeling connected to others is important, however social media can create negative social comparisons and set unrealistic expectations for ourselves - the impact of this can often be exhausting and overwhelming.
Do you sometimes feel alone, like no one understands you, isolating yourself off from your family or friends? Do you have trouble sleeping? Have you had difficult events happen to you, such as abuse, bullying, divorce, accidents or losses? Do you sometimes feel angry or afraid? Do you keep things locked up inside, not telling anyone how you really feel? Therapy sessions will be taken at your pace, and together we will discover what is important to you. I will help you learn to manage difficult feelings and become unstuck from negative or self-critical thoughts. This work will help you to develop your self-worth and self-belief that you can be anything you want to be. You can build your life, your way!
+ Help for Children
When we have difficult things happen to us we sometimes have tricky feelings and thoughts. Carrying these difficult experiences around with us can be tiring and cause us to behave in ways that perhaps concern our parents or teachers. It also means that there is less space in our hearts, minds and bodies for pleasant thoughts and feelings.
Therapy for children will almost always involve one or both parents to varying degrees, as we need adult helpers to enable our little people to recover, to feel safe and to learn how to feel good about themselves, the world and others around them. Together we can help children thrive and build a brighter future.

PARENT & FAMILY ADVICE & SUPPORT
Parents have in their hands the delicate and complex work of shaping another human life. Being a parent is such a privilege but also a responsibility that requires commitment and work. Developing an attuned, loving and secure connection with your child is fundamental to their health and wellbeing. All behaviours are a form of communication but sometimes working this out on your own can be tricky and lead to family upset, arguments and distress.
My parent consultation service provides you with an accessible and supportive space for you to discuss your concerns, following which a bespoke plan is drawn up to meet your specific needs. Sometimes as little as one follow-up is all that is required. These sessions provide you with the understanding, tools and techniques to help you shape and adapt your own communication style and responses in order to better help and develop your child’s behavioural, social, and emotional development. Together we can help shape an emotionally healthy, bright and compassionate world.
This is a non-emergency service and if you have any concerns about risk to yourself or your child please contact your GP to discuss.
