“I have always been inspired by how psychology and therapy, through evidence-based models, can have a positive influence on people's lives; moreover, how counselling psychology can help to find the way to a more meaningful and valued life even when struggling with difficult emotions, feelings, and thoughts.”

About Me
Research & Publications

My work involves the psychological assessment and treatment of clients of all ages, mainly adults, presenting with a range of psychological needs, often of a complex nature. 

I particularly value the inclusion of evidence-based third-wave cognitive behavioural therapies as the main therapeutic model at CPG, and enjoy working within such a highly qualified team.
