I'm a BPS Chartered/HCPC Registered Counselling Psychologist with a specialism in working 1-1 with adults with autism or Asperger's. I have been working in various roles with children and adolescents on the autistic spectrum for over 10 years and now specialise with adults. My experience allows me to adapt my approach such that therapy is accessible and supportive for people with an autistic spectrum condition. I do also see people who aren't on the spectrum.
There are an infinite number of reasons that might have led you to consider seeking help from a Counselling Psychologist, for example if your life is being affected by depression, anxiety, or social difficulties. I am trained to understand people as individuals using psychological formulation, this means we will work together to make sense of your experiences in the world and explore any difficulties you might be having in your life.
I work at the Practice Rooms on Mondays, Tuesday, and Thursdays and am able to offer 8am appointments, but this tends to be a popular time.
I competed my university based training as a Counselling Psychologist in 2013, and was awarded my doctorate in 2017 when I finalised my thesis. The course trained me to work as an integrative therapist using a relational approach; this means we will consider together what sort of approach (CBT, humanistic, psychodynamic) would be the best fit for our work together, but the relationship between us will always be at the heart of what we do. Everyone is an individual and it depends on what each person finds helpful.
I'm happy to have an initial chat on the phone or over Email before booking a session. The initial face to face session is charged at £40, and my standard fee is then £80 per 50 minute session. For clients who struggle to pay my standard rate I do have capacity to see a limited number of clients at a concessionary rate.
I am registered with both AXA and AVIVA.
