Online video and/or TELEPHONE
and WEEKEND appointments
are currently available, UK-wide.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, I am offering psychology sessions exclusively via video, or over the telephone, for UK residents.
I have also created additional weekend slots for appointments, for the duration of the lock-down in the UK, as I understand that people may find it more difficult to find time and privacy to speak during the week, due to work and home-schooling/child-care commitments.
I specialise in offering support for anxiety, fear, health anxiety, stress, uncertainty, vulnerability, loss and grief, disappointment, anger, feelings of overwhelm, not feeling like we're doing 'enough', or doing 'well enough' to cope or thrive, as well as family conflict, and how to talk to children about difficult topics like illness and death - I can offer valuable assistance in this very challenging and unprecedented time.
Or maybe you are finding that this lockdown has brought you closer to the type of life that seems to fit well for you ... Less external distractions, more family time, more time at home as a couple, etc....
If this is the case for you, then I can also support you to carry these positive changes forward into the post-lockdown world.
lovely to meet you.
I am a Doctor of Clinical Psychology, with over 10 years experience, and I have undergraduate degrees in both Psychology and Neuroscience.
I am committed to working collaboratively with you, to work towards the changes you wish to achieve.
Child & Parent Psychology Services
This area of service provision is my primary passion, and my most specialist area of expertise: I provide specialist, effective child psychology inventions, by working with parents:
Understanding the psychology of your children
will enhance the holistic health of your children, and the whole family, and will help you be the parent you want to be.
My specialisms include: Child Depression, Child Anxiety, Bereavement and Grief, Chronic illness or pain, Stress, Self-esteem, Social difficulties, Behavioural difficulties (such as defiance), ADHD, Autistic Spectrum Conditions,
and many more.
A timeline of waiting weeks, or months, really does matter in the context of your child's mental health - You can skip ahead of waiting lists at NHS services like CAMHS, and access my support now.
I also offer services to support couples to achieve healthier, happier relationships.
My specialisms in the field of couples therapy and psychology include: Communication difficulties, Commitment difficulties, Trust, Intimacy, Money worries, Challenges regarding extended family, Respect, Co-parenting,

Difficulties in relationships can often creep up on us, growing slowly, and often silently, over many years - So even if your relationship isn't at breaking point yet - You can act now, before any potential crisis, to maximise the potential for positive outcomes in your relationship.
