I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist with over 10 years of experience supporting people with a range of mental health difficulties across the NHS and charity sector.

I can help you make sense of the difficulties you experience and the issues that are

preventing change. Some of these difficulties may involve low mood, low self-esteem, grief and loss, stressful life transitions, anxiety problems, phobias, relationship difficulties or unusual experiences.


I work in a trauma-focused way, which means I consider past difficulties in life as important in understanding the present. Exploring these can be key to moving forward and living a life that is more fulfilling.


I am warm and approachable, offering a dependable safe space to develop a strong therapeutic relationship. My training enables me to draw from a variety of evidence-based models, particularly Compassion Focussed Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems, Narrative Exposure Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.


I work as an integrative practitioner, tailoring the therapy to your needs and helping you integrate different parts of yourself. I have experience in completing neurodevelopmental assessments. I also have a heart for helping people connect with nature, art and their community. ​ I work with adults offering face to face assessments and therapy in Falmouth (at The Birdhouse) and online.

Additional Information

I have a doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsy) and a foundation in Systemic Family Therapy. I have worked with many different people presenting with many different problems in their lives and I will meet you where you are at. I am registered with the Health & Care Professions Council.
