My Approach

I am integrative therapist, as I have been trained to use a number of therapy approaches. I often use systemic therapy as an overarching framework for all my work with clients, as it pays attention to the multiple systems in which we belong as well as life stage and socio-cultural issues. Within this framework, I use cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy, compassion-focused therapy and narrative therapy depending on the issues individual clients present with (and associated with evidence-base practice). My approach to working with couples and families are also based on therapies and ideas typically used for various presentations where there is an evidence-base; though with my experience, I also integrative ideas and practices that fit the individuals I am working with.

About Me

I am a clinical psychologist and a systemic family and couples psychotherapist. I have experience working with a range of mental health, physical health and neurological conditions in a number of settings, having worked in the NHS for 20 years. I work with individuals, couples and adult family members in my private practice, often taking an integrative (combination) therapeutic approach so that I can pay attention to people's social and cultural contexts as well as their valuable lived experience.

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

I provide an online service for adults who think they might have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), providing a pre-assessment consultation, full assessment with a diagnostic report, and post-assessment support. I have experience working with people who have received a diagnosis of ADHD where I provide psychotherapy to help them think about themselves compassionately in order to begin to explore areas they would like to address, which may include (but not limited to) everyday functioning, work-life balance, relationships and communication.
I am a qualified systemic family and couples psychotherapist. I work with couples experiencing a range of presenting issues, such as relationship/communication difficulties, where there has been infidelity or where one or both partners have a mental and/or physical health condition. I use ideas from attachment-based approaches, such as Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), narrative therapy and integrative sex and couples therapy within an overall systemic therapy framework.
I have had a growing number of clients presenting to therapy with issues pertaining to racial-based trauma, often stemming from incidents that have taken place at work or in an educational setting as well as social, community and forensic services in which they have come into contact. As a systemic psychotherapist, I use a systems framework to begin to address how abuse and discrimination appear in our lives whether it is due to race, gender, age, sexuality, religion, culture or combination, as these issues can intersect leaving people to feel hopeless and powerless, particularly if communities to which they belong do not accept aspects of their identity.
I work with with adult family members, such as parent-adult child(ren) and adult siblings relationship issues using a systemic framework, but incorporating a range of ideas and skills from Systemic Therapy, such as Attachment Theory, Narrative Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy.
I work with a wide range of mental health issues, such as anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), including complex/developmental PTSD and borderline personality disorder (BPD)/emotionally unstable personality disorder (EUPD). I use a range of therapeutic approaches, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Narrative and Systemic Therapy, Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT) and Mindfulness-based approaches, which I often integrate into my work with clients.
