Approach

Taking the first step to seek support for psychological and/or emotional challenges can feel scary and uncomfortable. I very much appreciate the courage it takes to overcome these initial barriers. My approach is based on full respect for the journey that brought a client to seek help in the first place. My work is based on a collaborative approach where the client can feel safe and supported whilst working towards improved quality of life in the areas of concern. I take a warm and welcoming approach to all my sessions, with the aim to facilitate a processof self-discovery and self-mastery within a safe and contained therapeutic relationship.

Experience

I originally qualified at the University of Utrecht (the Netherlands) in 1991, and moved to the UK in 1992. After a transition period I became a Chartered Clinical Psychologist in the UK, accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) in 1998.

I offer assessment, treatment and support for people who experience psychological challenges and/or mental health problems. These mental health challenges could have been caused by a variety of triggers, including challenging life experiences (recent and/or longstanding), physical healthconditions and/or neurological conditions including developmental neurological differences (dyslexia) and acquired brain-injury. My model of working is solution focussed. I use anumber of evidence-based psychological therapies, including CBT, Trauma Focussed CBT, Solution Focussed therapy, Person Centred therapy, and Mindfulness. I mainly work with people over the age of 18, and have experience in working with most mental health related conditions. I have a particular interest in working with Stress, Anxiety, Depression, Bereavement and Trauma (mild to severe, including PTSD- recent or in the past).

About me

I am a Practitioner Psychologist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). I have over two decades of experience working for the NHS as well as in private practice.
