Personal Profile

Background and Training
My decision to pursue a career in Clinical Psychology, begun at an early age, when I volunteered with young people with Learning Disabilities during my A-Levels. From this I have completed a range of qualifications in Psychology and am now a Chartered Clinical Psychologist. My enjoyment of working with people across the life-span has continued and I presently work in both the NHS and privately.

Employment History and Current Post
Since qualifying from my doctoral training I have worked in Children’s Services based in North Somerset. I really enjoy my varied work alongside children, families and professionals. I work with children with a range of difficulties including Learning Disabilities and Mental Health issues. I am constantly humbled by the ability of the children and families I work with to find solutions to their own difficulties. Alongside this direct work I can also run groups, support service development projects and supply training for teams and clients alike.

Private Practice
I have a private psychology company called Clarity Psychology with another Clinical Psychologist, with whom I  came together under a shared value base. I am able to offer therapy, training & consultation and legal work. I am very lucky to be able to offer adult clients the therapeutic space of The Lido in Bristol, which is a beautiful city retreat offering an exceptional environment from which to broach psychological issues.

About Clarity Psychology

Clarity Psychology is made up of Clinical Psychologists trained to Doctorate level in a range of psychological theory and evidence based practice. This professional understanding of psychological theory is offered in all our services which include:


Training / Consultation

Legal Matters

Clarity Psychology was formed with a set of values that shape all our services.

We believe:

1. Psychology should be accessible and meaningful.
2. Psychological services should be designed around the client.
3. Everybody deserves an exceptional quality of service.


Everybody experiences difficult emotions at various times in their life. Sometimes it can be helpful to have space to think and talk about such emotions in a safe and relaxed setting.

Therapy provides a place to share thoughts, feelings, and experiences with a professional, who will listen carefully and support you in this process.

Clarity therapists use extensive knowledge of Psychological theory and evidence to develop a shared understanding of where difficult emotions come from, and ways in which you can overcome these.

For Whom?
Clarity Psychology is able to work sensitively with people of all ages, and different backgrounds. We work with individuals, couples, and families. Some of the difficulties Clarity Psychology can work with include:

• Depression
• Anxiety
• Post Traumatic Stress
• OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)
• Eating difficulties
• Behaviour problems in childhood
• School-based difficulties
• Adjustment (to Bereavement, health problems, divorce)

Clarity psychologists all have doctorate level training in many forms of therapy. The exact style of therapy can be tailored to your preferred taste. Some models of therapy that can be used / combined include:

• CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy)
• CAT (Cognitive Analytic Therapy)
• Psychodynamic Therapy
• Systemic Therapy
• Narrative Therapy
• Solution Focused Brief Therapy

How does Therapy Work?
Your therapist will talk through how each of these psychological models can be used in therapy, so that you can decide on an approach that feels comfortable and helpful for you.

Clarity Psychology offers competitive costing, while maintaining the highest quality of services.
