I have worked in the NHS for 25 years in West and North Yorkshire. I specialise in working with adults with mental or physical health problems. I am particularly interested in helping people cope with periods of stress where they may be adjusting to a life event.

I enjoy helping people achieve positive personal growth and giving them skills to cope with difficult emotions and behaviours.

I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT) in my work.
