About my experience and practice

I have several year of experience working in Child and Adolescent Mental Health settings, within both the NHS and private sector. I specialise in assessing and providing therapeutic interventions  to children and young people with mild to complex and enduring difficulties, including:

  • Self-harming
  • Low self-esteem and depression
  • Anxiety disorders, such as, phobias, social anxiety and separation anxiety
  • Trauma
  • Grief/Bereavement
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder
  • Post diagnosis work for difficulties associated with autism
  • Behavioural difficulties
  • Nightmares and sleep problems
  • Pre-school problems

The format of therapy may include individual therapy, parent sessions or family appointments. I work mainly in a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) model, but can also provide Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR), Narrative Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness, and parenting approaches, where appropriate. As a Clinical Psychologist I am skilled at integrating various therapy approaches to tailor therapy to the specific needs of the young person, to address problems and help them reach their potential. I can also offer consultation and training to school and other agencies, providing information regarding mental health problems and their impact, along with appropriate recommendations for support.

Clinical Location

I work in Hindhead.
