I have worked in the mental health and psychology field for over 16 years. It is an area that I am incredibly passionate about. I am a Psychotherapist offering psychological therapy on a one to one basis. I offer psychological approaches that are effective evidence based forms of psychotherapy that are tailored to your needs and goals. I am committed to helping you overcome the problems that you face, reduce the distressing physical symptoms you may experience and better manage those racing thoughts.
I am a BABCP accredited CBT Therapist. I am also an EMDR practitioner.

I am the Programme Director of the Certificate and Diploma in CBT at Cardiff University. This academic role compliments my clinical practice, as it means I stay on top of research and developments in practice.
