About me:

I am a passionate and empathic psychologist who enjoys facilitating positive change with my clients. I have experience in a vast array of clinical settings which include work within forensic, private practice, community and hospital settings.

I am experienced in providing effective treatment for a range of mental health conditions including anxiety, depression, grief and loss, low self-esteem and relationship difficulties. I strongly believe in a person-centred and evidence based approach. I am particularly interested and experienced in working with younger adults.

How I will help you:

My main focus will be to build a considered and thoughtful environment where you can freely discuss your concerns. I intend to work collaboratively with you, to help you reach your desired outcome. I aim to build your knowledge of mental health, by providing practical strategies which you can apply to your everyday life.

My three favourite things:

  1. Hiking and camping
  2. Keeping active (CrossFit and running)
  3. Learning new languages (studying Italian at the moment).
