As a clinical psychologist in Craighall Park, the focus of my practice is on exploring the influence of past and present experience on current internal and relationship difficulties, while also using what happens in the therapeutic relationship to further understanding. I believe that gaining clarity in this way is the first step towards building new, lasting, healthier ways of experiencing the self and dealing with life’s challenges and complexities. I was integratively trained and do draw on a wide range of treatment modalities to best suit clients’ needs.

My areas of interest and specialisation include:

  • anxiety/panic
  • depression
  • grief
  • major psychiatric illnesses (e.g., bipolar disorder)
  • relational difficulties
  • maternal mental health issues (e.g., post-natal depression)
  • parent-infant bonding
  • chronic illness (e.g., cancer).
