About me

I am a highly experienced chartered counselling psychologist, having worked for 18 years in various settings in the NHS and the third sector as well as in private practice. I have held management and board level roles in both new and established social enterprises and have been running a successful private practice since 2005. I provide psychological therapy, clinical supervision, professional mentoring, clinical management consultancy services and training. As a skilled professional trained in a wide range of approaches I can tailor my services to the specific needs of my clients, whether they are individuals, groups or organisations. This is particularly important when working with clients who may have a diagnosis of Asperger’s or ASD, who often find traditional approaches unhelpful.
