Problems I can help you with

  • Anxiety, panic attacks, phobias

  • OCD

  • Depression

  • Difficulty regulating emotions

  • Adjustment to life changes and transitions

  • PTSD

  • Interpersonal difficulties

  • Self-esteem issues

How deep my understanding of these issues is

I have been interested in psychology for as long as I can remember and most of my working life has been dedicated to understanding and supporting people experiencing mental health challenges.  

I have been working in private practice at The Glow Centre since 2019 and prior to that, I worked for many years in community services in the UK and Australia, assisting people with a variety of complex needs.

I enjoy the challenge of the constantly evolving science that is psychology, and strive to continuously grow and learn to keep up to date with the latest developments and research.

How I can help you

I will work collaboratively with you on the things that are important to you and I will stay focused on our goals. 

My preferred approaches are CBT, DBT, CPT and Schema Therapy, and I will tailor my approach to your specific needs.

What does your involvement look like?

  • Regular attendance

  • Knowing what you want to work on and having some goals in mind

  • Willingness to explore origins of problems and understand patterns

  • Willingness to try new ways of thinking and doing outside of sessions
