As a Clinical Psychologist, I am trained in a range of evidence-based psychological therapies and stay up to date with new approaches and research developments through my Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities.  I am therefore able to offer bespoke therapy to suit your specific needs, goals, and preferences.

I accept adult therapy referrals for a broad range of presenting issues, while specialising in PTSD, complex trauma, and attachment issues.

My therapeutic approach is informed by:

 

  • Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT)

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

  • Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)

  • Mentalization-Based Treatment (MBT)

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

  • Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT)

  • Schema Therapy

  • Attachment-based approaches

  • Coaching Psychology

I welcome referrals from self-funding clients and those with health insurance, as well as from Local Authorities, Solicitors, and other third parties.

I am a registered practitioner with Bupa, AXA, Cigna, Healix and Prudential and a member of the Corpore-TTN rehabilitation and injury management treatment network.

 

Face to face sessions take place at my office in the attractive and conveniently located Cornwall Buildings, in the heart of the Colmore Business District in Birmingham city centre.

Zoom consultations are also offered depending on your needs and availability.

What is it like to be in therapy?

 

Appointments usually last for one hour.  When we first meet, we will spend one or two sessions assessing the issues you are facing, coming to a shared understanding of how they developed, and identifying the goals and changes that would make a meaningful difference to your life.  This assessment process might include using questionnaires to explore your difficulties. 

We will think together about what therapy approach would suit you best and whether you and I working together could be a good match.  We would usually aim to meet on a weekly basis after that, and regularly review your progress. 

Therapy sessions can be draining, and you may feel tired afterwards.  In the early stages of therapy, because you are bringing issues to the forefront of your mind, it is possible to feel somewhat worse before you feel better.  To get the best out of therapy it is important to work on new skills and experiment with new approaches between sessions.  By putting it into action and finding out what works for you, you will increase the chances of achieving the outcome you want.
