About me

I am an experienced, accredited psychotherapist and EMDR Europe Accredited Clinical Supervisor/Consultant. I have worked in mental health for over 25 years in the UK, India, and the Sultanate of Oman, including 14 years in NHS psychology services. My training and experience enables me to work with a wide range of psychological difficulties. I am committed to incorporating research and new developments into my work and tailor my approach to suit an individual’s needs.

My speciality: psychological trauma

Trauma is a complex issue: problems are often deep-seated and can be challenging to treat. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a highly effective, comprehensive psychological treatment for trauma, founded on a strong evidence base: it is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). There is also growing evidence of its effectiveness in the treatment of anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and physical pain.
