About Us

We are both Chartered Clinical Psychologists with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and registered Psychologists with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

We completed the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology programme at the University of East Anglia, Norwich, and it was here where we met. Whilst working together within the NHS, we decided to go into private practice together in 2014 with the aim of widening access to psychological services for clients outside of the NHS.

Together, we have co-facilitated interpersonal psychotherapy groups as well as groups for parents focusing on parent wellbeing, child-parent attachment and child behavioural management. We have experience of supervising Clinical Psychologists as well as other health care professionals using a variety of psychologically informed models. Our private practice to date has been commissioned by individuals, statutory organisations and not-for-profit organisations.

Our therapeutic approach is client-centred and compassion-focused. As Clinical Psychologists we use the best available clinical evidence and employ a range of therapy modalities to tailor the intervention to the client. Our therapeutic approaches of choice include Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), “third-wave” Cognitive approaches such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Cognitive Analytical Therapy (CAT) as well as trauma-focused approaches, in particular Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).

Getting therapy can feel like a big decision. Upon meeting new clients for the first time, my aim is for you to feel comfortable and safe. Central to my approach is the importance of openness, curiosity and collaboration, as they ultimately guide us in developing a shared understanding of each client’s unique situation and the issues at hand.

It is well known from both clinical experience and research that stress and difficult life events can affect our emotions and our sense of self. I am passionate about working with individuals wishing to move away from the effects of painful experiences towards a more desired life. One of my areas of expertise in this context and in my current NHS role, is working therapeutically with women and families where there are psychological difficulties during pregnancy, the birth and the early years. I have additional experience working with young adolescents through to older adults, on issues including low mood and depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, emotional difficulties and ongoing problems with relationships.

I am an EMDR practitioner and an EMDR consultant-supervisor in training. EMDR is a powerful therapy for the treatment of traumatic experiences and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It can be used alongside other psychological treatments to help with other problems as well. I offer EMDR therapy for clients with a range of difficulties as well as EMDR supervision for clinicians who are learning to use this approach in their own practice.

Over the past three years I have been involved in a study on the treatment of Tinnitus with EMDR, in collaboration with the ENT department at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and the British Tinnitus Association (BTA).  It has been an incredible learning journey for me to adapt how we use EMDR to treat Tinnitus. Our study is nearing its end. You can see me speaking about this work at the recent annual BTA conference, here:

I enjoy working with a wide range of clients (young children to older adults) and believe that the key factor in whether a client is able to benefit from therapy is forming a positive therapeutic relationship. When I meet a new client I work hard to find a creative way to engage with that individual, helping them to feel safe, contained and ready to engage in the change process.

I have several areas of interest including; social anxiety, interpersonal relationship difficulties, mood disorders, child-parent relationships, work related stress, and dual-diagnosis (e.g., alcohol/drug use and mental health). My area of specialism is working with young people with complex difficulties.

I am employed as a Senior Clinical Psychologist within the NHS and have experience of supervising a wide range of professionals including; 8a Clinical Psychologists, Trainee Psychologists and Social Care/ Education professionals.

I am an accredited Video Interactive Guidance (VIG) practitioner and enjoy using this technique to help parents improve their relationships with their children. This technique is recommeded by The National Institure for Health and Clinical Excellance for supporting children with attachment difficulties. To find out more about VIG visit:
