I offer ONLINE consultations until such a time when it is safe to meet face to face in my fully accessible and welcoming clinics in Plymouth.
In therapy I work with you to develop your compassionate resilience and foster personal growth. My warm, compassionate and professional approach has enabled many people to face their difficulties and learn to understand them, easing distress by facilitating a better understanding of themselves and their individual needs.
I'm one of the South West leads for Compassion Focused Therapy with The Compassionate Mind Foundation a charitable organisation that aims to promote wellbeing through the scientific understanding and application of compassion. I also offer Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, private counselling, supervision, training and consultancy services. I am an Expert Witness for the court for personal accident and injury claimants and defendants.
I'm the author of a number of academic publications in the field of Compassion Focused Therapy and I specialise in the application of this model with clients affected by psychosis. I am an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society and a registered Practitioner Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
