Clinical Work:

The role of the Clinical Psychologist is to reduce psychological distress (e.g. depression, anxiety, chronic stress) and enhance and promote psychological wellbeing. This is achieved through an interactive therapeutic process, which aims to enable each individual to understand their difficulties, increase their ways of coping and feel better about themselves and others.

I offer psychological assessment and evidence-based treatments in a holistic and non-judgemental fashion.

I am HCPC registered as a Practitioner Psychologist:
