About Me

I am a BPS Chartered Consultant Clinical Psychologist and registerered with the Health and Care Professions Council with more than twenty years of experience. As a highly motivated and dedicated professional, I have provided psychological services within the National Health Service and as an independent practitioner in the United Kingdom since 2001. I am experienced in using psychological therapies to help alleviate emotional distress across the lifespan. I am skilled in working with symptoms associated to mayor diagnosis such as depression, stress, anxiety, PTSD, phobias, chronic pain and headaches as well as permanent Post-Concussion syndrome, attachment functioning, interpersonal difficulties and relationship issues. I am particularly interested in understanding internal as well as external factors that might have convened at this time and that may play a fundamental role in the way you are currently feeling. Some of these internal factors might include cognition (e.g., memory, attention, planning and organisational skills) sleep, hormones, pain, nutrition, movement/exercise and your ability to self-sooth. External aspects include climate change, abuse, relationships, work and social life amongst others. Although, I have worked in-person with people for most of her career and is happy in this approach, I now mainly offer interventions online. I see the use of technology as an opportunity to connect with people in ways that have not been possible in the past. I feel that this mode of working offers greater choice, accessibility and creativity as well as efficiency in meeting your goals. Please, email me to request an initial consultation.

My commitment to professional growth is evident through my pursuit of continuous learning and development and my involvement in research projects that has allowed me to stay at the forefront of the latest developments in the field of clinical psychology.
