I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC - click here to check the register) and accredited with the British Psychological Society. I am also a member of the EMDR association UK and Ireland and the BPS Division of Clinical Psychology. I currently work for an NHS adult mental health team in East Sussex and offer private psychological therapy in Brighton and Hove. I have my own lived experience of mental health difficulties and I have a role as director of in2gr8mentalhealth Ltd, a centre for destigmatising, valuing and supporting lived experience of mental health difficulties in mental health professionals. I am very passionate in understanding and working with the impact that mental health stigma can have on our lives, especially in particular professional groups, in triggering and/or exacerbating feelings of internalised shame.
I primarily work with working-age adults on a 1:1 basis. I have a specialist interest in trauma-informed and trauma-focused therapy, including Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing and Trauma-focused CBT. I practice in an integrative way, drawing on a range of therapeutic approaches in order to offer a therapeutic space that can adapt to the needs of my clients.
