I hold a professional doctorate (PsychD) in counselling psychology, which gives me chartered status with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). I am also a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
Alongside my private practice, I work in the NHS. And I also teach on undergraduate and postgraduate counselling and psychology trainings.
I work individually, with adults and adolescents (16+). In addition to private practice, I have worked in NHS primary care (IAPT), secondary care and specialist addiction services. I also have worked in third sector bereavement, substance use, and mental health support services.
I have experience working with a range of issues, including: low mood and depression, anxiety, bereavement, relationship / marriage issues, abuse, addictions and compulsive behaviours, anger issues, and trauma. I have a specialism in working with gambling addiction, and I also work with complex and enduring problems, including diagnoses of personality disorder.
