Therapy to suit you

Each person is unique and there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach. When you work with a Clinical Psychologist, each experience of therapy is tailor-made for the individual, using scientific, evidence-based interventions.

I specialize in a range of therapeutic models which are outlined below. In our initial free 15 mins telephone consultation and throughout the treatment, I will discuss with you my approach, to make sure it suits you.



With many different treatments available, you may be asking yourself what is so special about psychological therapy provided by a clinical psychologist?

Clinical Psychologists are qualified to doctorate level through completing academic work, research and clinical experience. They are trained to understand human distress from minor issues to severe mental health difficulties, and work with people of any age. 

They are highly skilled in assessing a wide range of emotional, behavioural, neurodevelopmental and mental health difficulties using different assessment approaches and psychometric tools (some of which can only be administered by psychologists) to understand each person’s difficulties and make sense of them. 

While a therapist might be trained in one therapeutic approach for a particular client group, Clinical Psychologists are trained to offer a variety of evidence-based interventions as well as to tailor a number of therapeutic modalities to meet each person’s unique presentation. 

Clinical Psychologists engage in continuous professional development through further training, supervision, keeping up-to-date with research and new clinical evidence to ensure they offer the right support for each individual to achieve the best outcome.

Psychological therapy vs medication

Sometimes medication might help to take the edge off when difficulties are severe, being like a crutch rather than a cure. However, many medications have unwanted side-effects and may even exacerbate the symptoms or cause dependency over time. Psychological therapy gets to the heart of the problem without these unwanted side-effects and can actually resolve psychological issues or significantly improve quality of life, which a pill alone cannot do. 

A life-changing experience

For many, psychological therapy is a life-changing experience. It helps people not only overcome their difficulties or learn to manage them better, but to become more content and happy individuals living a fulfilling life.

How do I know it is the right time for therapy?

This is a good question, as therapy does require emotional and time investment, and you may need to consider the cost. When we meet for our free 15 mins consultation, I will help you to decide without any pressure or obligation if this is the right time for you. If at any point during the therapy you decide that it isn’t the right time, you are free to discontinue therapy. 


I am trained in the evidence-based therapies listed below and tailor my approach with each individual to find what is most suitable for them.
The main models I use to inform my practice are CFT, ACT and EMDR.

Adaptive Mentalization Based Integrative Treatment (AMBIT)

This approach applies mentalization theory and practice not only to direct work with clients, but to teams and wider multi-agency networks. This approach helps caregives and teams around particularly vulnerable, excluded or underserved clients who may have little trust in ‘help’ being helpful in their lives.

The Attachment, Regulation
and Competency (ARC) Framework

It is a flexible, components-based intervention developed for children, young people and families who have experienced complex trauma. It addresses important childhood competencies which are negatively affected by trauma and attachment disruptions. ARC is also used as an organizational framework to be used in service systems to support trauma-informed care. | Book a free 15 mins consultation today
