Professional Qualifications and Experience
I have a BSc. (Hons) degree in Psychology and Biological Sciences; an MSc in Developmental Psychology and an MSc in Occupational (Business) Psychology, all awarded by the University of London.
I have been working as a psychologist for thirty years. After qualifying I started working with young people, their families and their teachers in Child & Family Guidance clinics, which I did for twenty years. Then I worked with my husband in our own company, running training courses in all aspects of behaviour and emotion management and leadership within a range of organisations all over the UK and beyond.
I now focus on working with people facing some sort of psychological challenge in their lives. I work with individuals and small groups on issues such as managing workplace and exam stress, assertiveness training, dealing with difficult people, and various aspects of social anxiety.
I have undertaken additional training in Assertiveness; Cognitive Behaviour Therapy; Stress Management; Solution Focused Brief Therapy; Stress Management; Hypnosis; Cognitive Education and Thinking Skills.
I am currently updating my professional skills by completing a Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy at the UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy.
I am a Member of the British Psychological Society and British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and my work conforms to their Code of Conduct and ethical guidelines
I am DBS (formerly CRB) checked
About My Approach
Many of our challenges are associated with stress and anxiety which may be triggered by work; study and exams; social situations and relationship issues.
I work in partnership with my clients to help them develop their own inner resources and solutions to overcome a variety of different issues and to help them restore an overall sense of well-being, confidence and self-esteem.
I work with children, young people and adults on issues related to stress, anxiety and fears arising from a life challenge. Whether you are suffering from low self-esteem, lack of confidence or general social anxiety; or whether you are concerned about an important exam, interview, public speaking engagement or presentation we can find techniques to help you.
I conduct my sessions in a confidential, supportive, solution focused way, in a comfortable and safe environment
