During periods of psychological distress, life can feel scary and uncertain. Denise aims to reduce this fear and help clients to live a rich and meaningful life.
Denise has worked as a chartered Clinical Psychologist in the NHS for over 10 years. She has considerable experience of working with clients of all ages from young children and their parents, to older adults. Her main areas of expertise include anxiety disorders (generalised anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, social anxiety, body dysmorphic disorder, panic disorder), depression, postnatal depression, living well with a health condition, adjusting to life with a chronic health condition (including any associated physical or cognitive impairment).
Having previously worked as a lead therapist on pioneering clinical research treatment trials (CBT for the treatment of generalised anxiety disorder in young people, Metacognitive Therapy for the treatment of postnatal depression), Denise is highly skilled in these evidence-based treatment models. She also draws on mindfulness, ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy) and psychodynamic interpersonal therapy to provide holistic, individually tailored treatment plans.
