I am a fully registered and insured Practitioner Psychologist and Chartered Psychologist, specialising in a variety of physical and mental health difficulties. I accept self-referrals as well as being registered with a number of insurance companies including Axa, Aviva, Vitality Health, Willis Towers Watson, Etna and Helix Health Services. If you have mental health cover with any of these companies, they may be able to cover the cost of some or all of your sessions. You can check with them how many sessions will be covered and whether you will need a referral from your GP.
I have over 15 years' experience of supporting people to develop strategies to live with mental health issues (anxiety and depression, stress, worry or panic, health-related anxiety and depression) and long-term conditions (including thyroid disorders, pain, fatigue, COPD, medically unexplained symptoms, PMDD and cancer).
I help people to make positive and meaningful changes in their everyday lives despite difficulties and challenges they face. This includes identifying personal values, issues and goals, and working to create lasting change. This may include developing life skills such as effective communication and time management, or specialist support in relation to physical health issues such as smoking, improving sleep, alcohol consumption, weight management and healthy eating, movement/physical exercise, lifestyle choices and habit change.
I apply psychological interventions to build emotional and physical resilience after a change in life circumstances such as a job loss, chronic or acute illness, or other setbacks which may increase stress, anxiety and worry. I also use self-management approaches to empower people with chronic and long-term physical health conditions with the knowledge, skills and confidence to manage their health.
I use Health Psychology, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Health Coaching, Mindfulness, Positive Psychology and Motivational Interviewing.
