Online Therapy


I am a HCPC registered, chartered clinical psychologist with 15 years’ experience working in the NHS and private practice. I assess and work with adults with a broad range of mental health problems.


Using an evidence-based approach I work mainly within a cognitive behavioural framework and draw on concepts from schema therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy and mindfulness based therapy approaches. I am able to work to flexibly and adapt this range of different therapeutic interventions to meet the particular needs of my clients.


I will work collaboratively with you to help explore how and why you struggle and enable you to understand and manage these challenges more effectively. As you learn to step back from difficulties and the distress caused you will be better able to discover new choices that can help change your life. These new perspectives will enable you to break free of repeating and unrewarding automatic behaviours and responses.


I offer a safe, non-judgemental space where you can talk in confidence at my clinic in Petersfield or online. My clinics are currently held on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
