I am registered Practitioner Psychologist with the Health and Social Care Professionals Council (HCPC) and Chartered with the British Psychological Society. I qualified from the University of Leicester in 2014 and over my career have gained significant experience working with adults and young people on a range of mental health difficulties.

I work in close partnership with secondary schools across Northamptonshire providing therapeutic support for young people (16+) on a range of psychological and behavioural difficulties including anger and challenging behaviour, self-harm and eating difficulties. I also work as a Consulting Psychologist for the Lighthouse Centre which is a charitable organisation providing holistic treatment to people with life limiting and palliative care conditions.

As a psychologist, I have completed accredited training to high standard in a number of therapies. I use a person centred approach, drawing on a number of psychological approaches appropriate to individual client needs. These approaches include:
