Who am I and how can I help?
Who am I?
I am a fully qualified Clinical Psychologist offering brief and open-ended counselling and therapy for young people, adults, and their families. You don't need to be referred by a GP, just get in touch below. I currently have a waiting list.
I have experience in a range of areas working within the NHS, including anxiety, depression, and relationship difficulties. I specialise in chronic illness, brain injury and disease, dementia, and neurodiversity where I can work with mood, grief, adjustment, changes in identity, and changes in thinking skills (click on the orange words to learn more).
I am a warm, approachable, and respectful therapist who works in a person-centred manner. Click here to learn more about what I can offer you and what to expect from therapy.
How can I help?
Have you been feeling down, hopeless, or lost? Or perhaps you feel worried, confused, or overwhelmed? You could be concerned for yourself or someone in your family. Maybe something significant has happened recently, or it has slowly dawned on you that you are not feeling yourself.
I’m happy to tell you that we can work together to better understand what’s happening to you. There is an opportunity to feel better than you do now, whether that means recovery or learning to live with how things are at the moment. Change is possible.
To help you do this I provide evidence-based talking therapy and cognitive rehabilitation on-line, over the phone, or in person in Bristol. You are welcomed into a safe space in which we can explore what personally tailored approach will work best to support your wellbeing.
"My daughter was struggling with anxiety that gave her physical pain and stress, we had tried various medications and saw a paediatric doctor. Since we started working together my daughters anxiety has almost disappeared and physical symptoms massively reduced.
We were concerned it wouldn't be worth her missing school for, but I would say give it a try even if you have concerns. It has been the best thing for my daughter."
I completed my bachelor's, master's in neuropsychology, and doctorate in clinical psychology (DClinPsy) at Bangor University, North Wales. I also have a PhD in experimental psychology from the University of Bristol.
