I work collaboratively with individuals, couples and groups to help people identify underlying issues, reach understanding, find clarity and make changes that are needed in their lives. 




Hello and Welcome to my website

I am a Chartered Psychologist who has worked, researched and specialised in psychology, psychotherapy and counselling since 1996. My approach is integrative, which means that I incorporate a range of evidence-based therapies according to each individual's needs. The main approaches I use are Mindfulness Based, Compassion Focussed, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Systemic and  Person Centred. My aim is always to create a safe space in therapy to explore possibilities and alternatives that enable positive life changes which optimise physical and emotional well-being.

Latest update on Coronavirus (COVID-19):

In response to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic and for your health and wellbeing, all face-to-face consultations are suspended from 18/3/2020 until further notice.

I have moved all threrapy sessions to online platforms and phone consultations, whichever works best for each individual. I am available online through Webex, Zoom and Skype.

Payment of sessions will need to be electronic or via Stripe if you are self-funding. If you have health insurance, all the providers I work for have agreed to fund remote therapy.

As soon as it is safe to do so, I will be returning to my consulting room at the beautiful Retreat Holistic Centre.
