I’m a Chartered Counselling Psychologist, and I work in a number of capacities within private practice. Previously I’ve worked in the NHS and in education, providing therapeutic and consultation services. I’ve been fortunate to have a varied experience within my career, working with a range of clients. Despite the varying presentations, one thing remains the same and that is my passion for people. What unites us is our desire to be known, understood and accepted. Relationships are the sustenance of life, but most importantly the quality of our relationships with ourselves is the foundation that holds up everything else. So whether it be through therapy, coaching, educating, mentoring, speaking engagements – self-awareness is at the heart of all that I do and offer to those I come into contact with.
Liberty Therapies is my private clinic where I work with individual and couples – providing both short and long-term therapy.
As a Chartered Counselling Psychologist (registered by the British Psychological Society and the Health and Care Professions Council) I am trained in a number of therapy modalities which enables me to be a flexible and integrative practitioner. This means that I can offer a tailored approach to the individual in front of me, based on their needs and difficulties. I am trained in:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Mentalization Based Therapy and
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
I also use elements of Relaxation, Mindfulness and Compassion Focused Therapy in my work where appropriate.
Having worked in the NHS and private sector for over 10 years, my breadth of experience has covered working with individuals at all stages of the lifespan, as well as more specialist areas such as relational work with couples and families, schools and corporate environments. Despite working in varying client groups and organisations, my aim remains the same. This is to come alongside those I am working with to bring clarity, compassion and understanding in order to propel towards change.
It is important to me that I connect with my clients in a way that is completely down-to-earth and relatable, yet professional and effective. I like to bring the human nature to any therapeutic interaction, as therapy needn’t be all doom and gloom, it can also be a time of curious exploration and humour as we learn that we are all in need of some direction at times. Therapy is an investment which will take time, money and energy therefore it is worthwhile taking the time to find a therapist that you can connect with.
