I am a
highly experienced practitioner psychologist who has over 16 years’ experience
in both NHS and private practice.
I have expertise
working with a wide range of the difficulties that come with the human
condition; such as performance anxiety, stress, procrastination, depression,
and lack of life direction. In addition, I have many years’ experience working
with clients with a range of physical health problems such as fatigue, pain and
long-term health conditions. I work integratively drawing upon many evidence-based psychological models
such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) , mindfulness, compassion-focused therapy (CFT), and Cognitive Behavior
Therapy (CBT). I feel hugely privileged to do the work I do; I enjoy working
collaboratively with clients across a wide spectrum of diversities, facing
social, psychological and physical challenges. I bring humour and humility to my
work to find creative, workable ways for you to move towards the life you want.
My strong academic background in the life sciences, coupled with my personal
passion for health and movement/exercise, contributes to a deep understanding
of the interaction between human physiology, evolutionary biology and
psychological mindset in maintaining physical and emotional health. I believe
passionately that our bodies and minds are intimately connected and I have a personal and professional commitment to
empowering others to look after their health and fulfill their potential.
I am a
skilled trainer, mentor, supervisor, and researcher and have published in
various peer reviewed journals.
