Who am I?
I completed my doctorate in Clinical Psychology at University of Surrey, and since then have undertaken further training in EMDR, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, ACT, CFT and IFS. I also have interests in Art and Yoga and have qualifications in both of these, and often use them as tools within therapy. I’ve worked in the NHS for 10 years and have experience seeing clients of all ages. I now specialise in trauma, transitions and attachment.
You might want to see me if:
you are interested in how your past links to your present, and the effect this might have on the current relationships within your family or on your parenting journey.
I support families, couples, children and parents who need help with
-adjustment to life changes
-anxiety and/or depression
-relationship or bonding difficulties
-the transition to new parenthood, or the addition of a new baby or child
I use an integrative, formulation-led approach. This means every intervention is tailor made to suit the individual. I mostly use an attachment model, so we talk about relating to others quite a bit. My most important aim is that everyone in the room feels listened to and understood. I am flexible in my approach, and can consider long or short term work depending on your needs. I like to think I’m quite informal and friendly as a therapist, and don’t take myself too seriously.
