As a clinical psychologist I’m trained in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of psychological problems and mental illness. I use individualised evidence-based techniques such as cognitive-behavioural therapy, schema therapy, mindfulness, trauma-focused therapy and play therapy.

My strengths involve building rapport with clients and easing concerns about attending therapy.

CONSULTATION PROCESS

A session / consultation involves:

  • Discussing the issues that concern you
  • Assessing emotional, cognitive and behavioural health
  • Exploring the thoughts, feelings and behaviour and tracing their origins
  • Helping to develop effective ways of controlling and coping with these difficulties
  • Helping to implement changes that enhance wellbeing and awareness, and alleviate the problems

CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS

I have a particular interest in working with children and parents. As a mother of three, I have first-hand experience of the difficulties associated with raising a young family through to young adults. I adopt a friendly, engaging and non-judgemental approach to therapy.

My specialties are anxiety related issues and educational testing. I feel strongly about children reaching their full potential and use assessments for children such as WISC-V and the WPPSI-IV.
