About me

As a Psychologist, Counsellor and Coach , I specialise in a range of holistic therapeutic interventions including psychotherapy and behaviour modification towards positive wellbeing.

These tools and techniques include one-to-one skills development, coaching,counselling and networking. Coaching employs the use of techniques such as observing, listening and questioning to support the client and to identify solutions and actions in line with the client’s values. The most important part of this work is to encourage a ‘commitment to action’ ethos and develop lasting personal growth and change using goal setting and action plans, whilst identifying barriers towards change.

Outside of my private practice, I work within a mental health team at a university offering wellbeing support to students. Through the university I am completing a PhD in Psychology, researching the connection between mindfulness, compassion and the body. I also guest lecturer on the MSc Mindfulness and Compassion course at a local University.

-Mental health services (universities)
