I am an experienced BABCP accredited CBT Psychotherapist and an EMDR Psychotherapist, I also interweave 3rd Wave CBT techniques including Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) techniques, Enhanced Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Eating Disorders (CBT-E) and Schema Therapy into my clinical treatment. I am a member of the EMDR Association, working towards EMDR Accreditation and maintain my NMC professional registration.  My professional background of mental health nursing with a Masters of Nursing Science enables me to tailor psychological theoretical principles holistically and form strong therapeutic relationships with my clients.

I always aim to provide high quality, compassionate and individualized treatment to all my clients. I have worked with mental health and psychological difficulties for the last 19 years, primarily within the NHS, providing me with extensive experience including secondary care, specialist Eating Disorder care, in-patient, community and outpatient settings, within both Child and Adolescent and Adult services. I regularly receive very positive feedback, particularly regarding my empathetic approach and clinical knowledge.

I have experience of assessment, individual psychological therapy and within a group setting, with a range of difficulties including Depression, Social Anxiety, Perinatal Depression and Anxiety, OCD, PTSD and complex trauma, GAD, Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Specific Phobias, BBD, Trichotillomania, Eating Disorders and Personality Disorders – often in the context of extreme social difficulty, child protection concerns, substance misuse, ASD and/or physical health difficulties/disabilities. I have continued to work with this clinical population after joining the Priory Group in 2019 as an inpatient and outpatient CBT/EMDR Psychotherapist.
