I consider myself to be professional but down to earth, warm and approachable. I provide you with a safe and non-judgemental space to work through the challenges that you are having. I offer short and long term therapy.
I work in an integrated way which means I draw on a range of therapeutic approaches to offer an intervention that is tailored to you, after all we are all unique individuals and one size does not fit all. My approach is a balance of providing a safe space to listen, validate and help you understand yourself better, alongside introducing you to skills and strategies that you can use to help you manage your thoughts, feelings and behaviours differently, make changes and achieve your goals.
My background and qualifications
I have worked within mental health settings since 2003. I completed my doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsych) at Staffordshire University in 2011, which covered a wide range of therapeutic approaches, with a focus on CBT and systemic / family therapy approaches.
Since qualifying I have been based in Yorkshire. I was the Senior Clinical Psychologist for a complex trauma and personality inpatient service for several years. I was also a Senior Psychologist in an outpatient department, seeing adults presenting with a wide range of difficulties. Alongside this I was the Clinical Lead for the Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) service.
