About me

I am a Registered Mental Health Nurse and a Registered General Nurse. I have a wide range of experiences within both areas of healthcare. I have worked for the National Health Service for a long time and this experience has enabled me to engage with and treat both adults, children and their families.

I am am aware of the impact of chronic health concerns on Mental Health and have treated many young adults to address their emotional wellbeing using a variety of approaches tailored to the individual needs.

I have worked in both acute settings as well as community settings. More recently my experience has been within a Child and Adolescent Mental Health service. Although I have worked independently with children, I find working with parents most useful and helping them understand their child from a psychological perspective.

You may have concerns about your Child’s presentation and this is troubling you. I can help you make sense of the behaviours that concerning you. In addition to this I am able to offer a wide range of psychological approaches to the generic Child and Adolescent Mental Health population, including Dialectical Behaviour therapy (DBT), Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and trauma focussed therapies such as Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).

I have an understanding of attachment theory and the impact of developmental trauma, trauma across the generations, toxic stress and shame on individuals. I am therefore able to treat adults who are experiencing psychological distress from their own experiences which may have led to the development of shame and guilt.

I have also used Eye movement Desensitisation reprocessing (EMDR) on a one on one individual basis with young people, and young adults who are ready to reduce the psychological symptoms of their trauma experience; this powerful therapeutic approach can be used with and alongside other therapeutic models.

I can offer a confidential holistic approach based on your individual needs; whether anxiety is troubling you, whether you have concerns around identity, maybe you have health concerns or maybe you are having relationship problems and want to address these therefore allowing you to have more control in your life.
