A bit about me..
I am committed in promoting happy and fulfilling relationships and developing resilience in my work with children, parents and adults. I always try to ‘tune in’ to what the child or adult most needs, and create with them a program of support that most fits their particular difficulties.

As a Chartered Psychologist, I am registered with The British Psychological Society and a Practitioner Psychologist registered with HCPC [Health Care Professions Council] and adhere to the BPS Code of Practice and Ethics. I am a BUPA, Cignia Healthcare and Ministry of Defence approved Psychologist. I hold a current DBS clearance
