Professional Statement:

Over the past seven years I have worked with adults and older adults in a number of NHS and third sector organisations. Within these settings I have experience of working on a one-to-one basis with individuals and also delivering psycho-educational workshops to groups. I have experience of working with a variety of presenting difficulties; particularly anxiety disorders, depression and relationship difficulties.

Personal Statement:

As a Counselling Psychologist I endeavour to practice integratively, with an overarching CBT framework and incorporating psychodynamic and person-centred approaches where necessary.

I work in collaboration with my clients on their own personal journeys, to facilitate exploration of their unique subjective experience, alleviate their distress and empower and support them to achieve their goals.

Additional information about my research, publications and interests:

My doctoral research explored the grief experiences of identical twins that lost their co-twin in older adulthood.

I have a keen interest in the ideas of attachment and loss.
