Practice description

I am an HCPC-registered Clinical Psychologist with a special interest in working with LGBTQ+ people, including those who are transgender, non-binary or questioning their gender. I also have expertise in working with individuals with long-term health conditions and disabilities and can provide space to consider how experiences of illness can interact with gender identity. Therapy can involve exploring your gender and possible challenges associated for this. Similarly, others come to therapy to work on different issues such as past trauma or mood difficulties, with a therapist who is informed about gender diversity.

I am trained in a range of evidence-based therapies and use these in an integrative way, adapting to each individual’s needs. In particular I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Psychodynamic Therapy. My approach is flexible and during assessment we can consider together what kind of therapy may be most helpful for you.
