My main clinical interests are in the assessment and treatment of depression, anxiety, ADHD and bipolar disorder and the effects of trauma. I have training and experience of assessing and treating a wide range of mental health problems.
Seeking help for mental health problems is often a daunting task at a vulnerable time in an individual’s life, my aim is to provide a comprehensive but sensitive assessment and work with you to find effective solutions.
