About Me

I have over ten years’ experience working in NHS child health services and within a Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), supporting parents and families in the adjustment to parenthood when a baby, child and/or parent has significant health problems. I have worked in the paediatric clinical psychology services at Great Ormond Street Hospital and have worked for eight years within paediatric cardiology and respiratory services at the Royal Brompton Hospital. I have also offered psychological support to parents when their baby has been cared for in a neonatal unit (NICU) or special care baby unit, and within antenatal and maternity services.

If you’re looking at my website, you may be concerned about your own, or someone else’s wellbeing. You may be going through a difficult time in your life, and perhaps you’re feeling overwhelmed or stuck, and looking for help to move forward. Asking a professional to support you when things feel difficult can feel scary and a bit uncomfortable. I hope you’ll find that I offer a supportive, warm, friendly and non-judgmental approach.

You’re welcome to get in touch with me to discuss your concerns and see if I would be able to help.

What I Offer

I offer psychological therapy to mothers and fathers during the perinatal phase, including for people experiencing anxiety and/or low mood during pregnancy or after their baby is born (including postnatal depression and postnatal anxiety), following a traumatic birth experience or when their baby has additional health needs or has required neonatal hospital care. I also offer bereavement support to parents and other family members when their baby has died.

I also offer a space for parents to explore their own thoughts, feelings and experiences connected with being a parent and any challenges and dilemmas that may arise in your own parenting journey. We can think together about how you want to be as a parent, and what values are important to you as you move through parenthood.
