My experience

As a Counselling Psychologist specialising in working with adolescents and adults, I have experience in a variety of settings across the NHS, charitable organisations and the private sector. The role of the Counselling Psychologist is to reduce psychological distress (e.g., anxiety, chronic stress, low mood) and promote psychological wellbeing (e.g., self-compassion, self-esteem, sense of purpose) through the use of evidence-based methods. This is achieved through a collaborative therapeutic process, which aims to enable each individual to understand their situation, increase their ways of coping and feel better about themselves and others.

I combine traditional talking therapy with techniques from multiple therapeutic schools to work with clients to achieve their goals. I frequently work with adults and young people on the following:

  • Anxiety

  • Bereavement and Loss

  • Chronic worrying

  • Everyday Mental Health Maintenance

  • Existential and Identity Issues

  • Health Anxiety

  • Meaning-Making, Sense of Purpose and Values

  • Personal Development

  • Physical Health and Illness

  • Self-Compassion

  • Self-Esteem

  • Sexuality

  • Shame and Guilt

  • Sleep

  • Social Anxiety

  • Spirituality

  • Stress

  • Uncertainty

  • Wellbeing
