"We are all unique and all process and experience difficulties, suffering and distress in our own way.  Psychological therapy provides space to reflect and develop a broader and in-depth understanding of our difficulties and discover meaningful ways to enhance our psychological wellbeing"

About Me
Research & Publications

I have had the privilege of working with individuals of all ages and I am humbled by the uniqueness of everyone I meet. I have experience of working with a range of difficulties, including anxiety, depression, stress, complex trauma, childhood trauma, self-esteem difficulties, and relationship difficulties. I have specialist experience of working with adults with complex trauma histories and survivors of adverse childhood experiences. As a clinical psychologist, I can flexibly draw on evidence-based interventions to suit individual goals and aspirations.

At the core of all psychological treatment is the therapeutic relationship between the client and the therapist. As a therapist, I am empathic, warm, and down to earth. I provide a safe, compassionate, and non-judgemental space to reflect on the difficulties that have brought you to therapy. I am person-centred in my approach, and I work collaboratively with you to develop a shared and broader understanding of your difficulties and work towards positive change. I am passionate about bringing to light your strengths, with the hope that you will feel empowered to make meaningful change outside of the therapeutic space.

As a qualified clinical psychologist, Roxy can draw on a range of evidence-based psychological therapies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Compassion Focused therapy (CFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavioural therapy (DBT). She is currently undertaking additional training in Mentalisation-Based Therapy (MBT) and will soon be a qualified MBT practitioner. Roxy is person-centred in her approach and can flexibly integrate psychological modalities to suit her clients’ individual goals for therapy. Roxy offers online psychological therapy and creates a safe space to support individuals in enhancing psychological wellbeing and bring meaningful change to their lives.

Roxy has experience working with individuals across the life span and in a variety of NHS and private settings, including community and inpatient mental health services, forensic services and education services. She has experience of working across the mental health spectrum including anxiety, depression, psychosis, personality disorder and neurological difficulties. She currently works in a specialist service providing psychological interventions for adults who have complex trauma histories and can often present with significant difficulties in emotional regulation, impulsivity and maintaining healthy relationships. Roxy has experience of supervising psychology professionals and providing consultation for a variety of professionals and services. She is also experienced in facilitating psychology-informed workshops and training to professionals and organisations. She is passionate about challenging the stigma often attached to mental health difficulties and encouraging psychological mindedness.

Prior to completing the doctorate in clinical psychology, Roxy worked in the research department of a physical health NHS service and for Offender Health Research Network at the University of Manchester. From this, she gained extensive research experiences, from application of funding through to disseminating findings, including written articles for publication.  Roxy also applies these skills to service evaluation with the aim to continuously improve and develop services, and contribute to evidence-based practice.
