About

I am a Counselling Psychologist, chartered by the British Psychological Society and registered with the Health & Care Professions Council. I have eight years post qualification experience working within the NHS, working with adults, young people, and couples. I am passionate about improving the lives of people who have been affected by physical illness, trauma and personal injury. I specialise in the psychological adjustment to acute and long term physical conditions and traumatic events.

I have a particular interest in working with people with diabetes, sexual health conditions and psycho-sexual problems. I am able to offer assessment and intervention work for a broad range of common psychological difficulties including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, phobias, PTSD, OCD, relationship difficulties, stress, and adjustment to life events. I am trained in a number of psychological approaches including CBT, person centred therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and EMDR (Level 1 & 2). I have recently published an article on adjustment to type-1 diabetes in young people.
