I hold a Senior Psychologist role in the NHS alongside my private work, which helps me to stay at the forefront of clinical practice. My depth of experience means that I am able to practice in a flexible way that works for you in order to help you reach your goals, and I offer a free telephone consultation in the first instance to start this process.
I use a range of therapies, including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), to work with people who are struggling with psychological difficulties – from severe and complex mental health problems, to those who simply want to understand themselves better. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is a central component of successful therapy, which is why I provide a warm, supportive, non-judgemental space to help you feel at ease. We will work together to identify your hopes and come to a shared understanding of your difficulties, in order to enable and support change.
Alongside my private practice I currently work in the NHS as a Senior Clinical Psychologist in an Early Intervention in Psychosis Service, offering individual and family therapy. I also supervise other therapists in order to help them develop their practice, and I deliver training courses to other health professionals.. Prior to this, I was based in a secondary care community mental health team working with adults with a wide range of severe and enduring psychological difficulties.
I hold the protected title of Clinical Psychologist and am governed by the HCPC, the only legally-recognised body for counselling and psychotherapy. I hold a Chartered status with the British Psychological Society, reflecting the highest standard of psychological knowledge and expertise.

Finding the right therapist for you might seem like a daunting task, which is why I offer a free 15 minute telephone consultation to discuss your situation and your hopes for treatment, so you can decide if you would like to make an assessment appointment.
If you decide to start therapy we would agree on a therapy plan, including your goals, the number of sessions, and the responsibilities we have towards each other. Sessions last for 50 minutes, usually weekly. In addition to offering appointments at my Tuesday evening clinic in Guildford, I can also offer face to face online therapy via a secure video link. Please contact me if you would like further details.
Psychological assessments (up to 1 hour): £105
Ongoing therapy sessions (50 minutes): £105
Please note that if you are using a health insurance provider to pay for your sessions, fees may differ from those for self-funding individuals. I am an approved provider for most of the health insurance companies including Aviva, AXA PPP Healthcare, and BUPA. If you are insured by a company not listed above, please let me know and I would be happy to make enquiries with the relevant company regarding your possible treatment.
