Would You like to Talk?
Getting in touch for the first time can seem scary, however, it can be
the start of a life changing journey and a valuable investment towards your future.
If you have any questions and/or would like to have a free 20-minute telephone consultation, then please feel free to contact me. As I am often busy in appointments, the best way to get hold of me is by email. Please briefly indicate what type of problem you are seeking treatment for and whether you have a specific type of therapy modality in mind (i.e. IFS or even a mixture). It's OK if you don't know - we can explore this together.
Once you've made initial contact, the first session focuses on understanding your difficulties and yor therapy goals and agreeing on a good place to start. Depending on your needs and your personal preferences, we may choose a specific therapeutic modality to focus on or we may decide on a blend of approaches to help you find what might suit you best. The idea is for us to work together as 'psychological detectives', who work as a team to get you 'unstuck' from your symptoms.
Please note that all appointments are conducted online.
For mental health emergencies please contact your doctor.
Referrals and Fees

I particularly enjoy working with medical professionals, who might be experiencing burnout or compassion fatigue and I welcome referrals for GPs, nurses and paramedics and other mental health practitioners who might be struggling with the demands of their work.

Patients I am unable to support
Unfortunately I don't accept referrals for individuals under the age of 18.
Due to the nature of my working set up, I am unable to support individuals with more complex psychological needs who might require a multidisciplinary approach to care (for example, where the therapist needs to regularly liaise with the psychiatrist to coordinate different aspects of care etc).
Like most psychologists and psychotherapists, as the pandemic hit, I shifted my practice to working online. At first, I was sceptical about working remotely, however I was pleasantly surprised to find that none of the therapeutic value seemed to be lost and that ALL of the therapeutic techniques could still be applied (including in EMDR!).
I also discovered that a lot was gained in terms of patient convenience and accessibility to treatment, particularly for those who have struggled to find specialists in their area. This was supported by feedback of many of my pre-pandemic patients who found online therapy easier to get to. With many of my clients spread throughout the UK and Europe, my clinical work (including clinical supervision) is now solely based online.
