Registered Counselling Psychologist (DCounsPsyc) BSc (Hons)
My practice offers professional and confidential support to adults and children in the context of specialist psychological assessment and evidence-based psychological treatments for a wide range of emotional difficulties.
I am a Registered Counselling Psychologist accredited by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Over the last ten years, I have worked therapeutically with people of all ages, from different backgrounds in both community and residential settings.
I completed my doctorate degree in Counselling Psychology at the University of Manchester. During this time, I worked across different settings including the National Health Service (NHS), voluntary and private sector delivering both group and individual therapy to adults, children and young people. I developed a special interest in eating disorders and had a specialist placement in an adult outpatient NHS eating disorder service. Related to this, my thesis was on eating disorders, shame and guilt and I published a research paper in this field. Similarly, I accrued teaching experience and lectured on the undergraduate youth work program at the University of Manchester.
I am very passionate about learning and enhancing both my personal and professional development. In additional to my doctorate training, I have undertaken additional specialist training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Compassionate Focused Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing.
Currently, I work as a Psychologist within a specialist Adult Mental Health Service in the NHS delivering evidence based psychological assessment and therapy. In addition, I work in my private practice with both adults and children; specialising in psychological assessment, therapy and medico-legal services.
