Why work with me?
Finding the right Clinical Psychologist (or therapist) is crucial as you will be sharing parts of yourself that you might have hidden for a long time. It's important to find someone who you feel comfortable with and who will make you feel safe but will also challenge you when you need it. After all, you are investing your time and money with the aim of improving your life! I work with those who self-fund and also accept referrals from most of the main UK based health insurance providers.
I typically offer longer term (20 sessions plus) for people who have have experienced difficult life events / have issues relating to sex and sexuality.
Originally from the Midlands, I have a relaxed and open style in therapy and integrate a number of approaches including EMDR , DBT, Schema Therapy and Compassion Focussed Therapy. I am compassionate and nurturing whilst being down to earth and approachable and I am far from perfect.
I work with people who are ready to work hard in therapy but are often struggling with knowing where to begin. I help people to break life long tricky patterns of thinking, feeling, behaving and relating to others. Some people I work with have been experiencing difficulties for the majority of their lives whilst others work with me following a difficult life event in adulthood that challenges how they see themselves.
I am sex positive and kink aware.
