My therapeutic practice and interest is fundamentally interested in and focussed upon the developmental, reproductive, and sociocultural contexts of health decision-making and behaviour for women.
Topics that I cover include:
— Including 7 years working within a clinical health psychology setting, seeing clients with chronic pain, disability and illness.
I set up the first group intervention for patients experiencing chronic pain in Haringey and have experience of working with other chronic health issues and cancer. In the field of women's health I have knowledge and experience of working with women struggling with gynaecological issues, fertility, women's cancers, PMS, PCOS and peri menopause/menopause.
Within my private practice, I see women with a wide range of presenting concerns. I have a warm and interactive style and many of my female clients come back to me at various times, when new life events necessitate the need for further support. I encourage this level of flexibility and believe that a strong and trusting therapeutic relationship can be the foundation for ongoing and life enhancing change.
I am a registered provider of psychological services for many insurance companies such as Bupa, Aviva, PPP/AXA, Pru Health and Cigna.
