About Me. Portrait image

Who I am…


I am committed to improving the mental health of the clients I work with through upholding the values of inclusivity, going the extra mile, friendliness and compassion.

I am guided by the main common aspirations my clients share with me:

  • Hope
  • Independence
  • Control
  • Stability and consistency in life

What my clients say

"Thank you, makes me feel at ease, professional and consistent always."
G. F.

“Felt listened to, very friendly, understanding and reassuring.”
M. T.

“I felt well supported whilst taking responsibility for my recovery, as a result I felt confident to try a new job.”

"…. the main thing that stands out for me is, I have finally been able to make a daily routine for myself and stick to it. I have less time to think negative thoughts."
L. L. Client

My core profession is in mental health nursing where I have about eight years post registration experience. During this time, I have successfully worked as a Registered Mental Health Nurse, starting as a Staff Nurse on an in- patient ward. After about two years I had the opportunity to work as a Community Psychiatric Nurse (CPN) within a secondary mental health service where I successfully held this post for about six years. During this time, I used CBT principles and interventions in my work with patients. I managed my own caseload which was a mixed caseload comprising patients suffering from common mental health problems and others with severe and enduring mental health problems. I noticed that working in a structured way with my patients helped them make progress through their recovery journey with good outcomes. I also had the opportunity to do a Master’s programme in Psychosocial Interventions (MSc in Advanced Practice Mental Health Nursing). After the successful completion of my Master’s degree, I developed further interest in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) having been inspired by its positive outcomes in my practice.

I had the opportunity to successfully complete a formal and accredited Post-Graduate Diploma in CBT (High Intensity training). I currently work in an IAPT service providing evidence-based CBT interventions both face to face and online therapy. I have a good experience in treating the full range of anxiety disorders and depression. I am developing my specialist area in CBT for Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
