Central to my way of working is offering a non-judgemental, safe and relaxed therapeutic environment where clients can feel understood and reflect on their experiences. Establishing a genuine and warm therapeutic relationship is key. I am interested in the uniqueness of each individual’s experience and how the relationship with oneself, others and the world shape how people operate in their environment and give meaning to their experience. I strongly believe that my approach needs to be tailored to the needs of each individual and I integrate the therapeutic models I am trained it to find the best fit for you.
I have 15 years experience of working within different NHS services alongside my private practice, which was established in 2012. My most recent role in the NHS is working as a Senior Psychologist in a Chronic Pain Service. Other services I have worked in include a primary care psychology service, a Community Mental Health Team, and a specialist personality disorder service In these settings, I have worked both short-term and long-term with clients experiencing a broad range of emotional and psychological difficulties from mild depression and anxiety to complex trauma and difficulties managing strong emotions. I have also worked with people who live with chronic health conditions, in particular chronic pain, to help them adjust to their condition.
