I am a highly trained Clinical Psychologist who has helped many adults, young people and families in managing and adjusting to difficulties that they faced throughout their lives. I understand that life challenges can affect people’s emotional well-being, their relationships and/or their ability to manage everyday life.
Initially, my career has involved conducting psychological research at the Institute of Psychiatry, King's College University.
My clinical practice involved working across various NHS settings, helping adults, young people and families with a wide range of emotional and behavioural difficulties, including anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties and challenges related to adjusting to life events. After this I undertook a role as a Highly Specialist Clinical Psychologist in a clinical health and palliative care teams. In this role I worked with adults who struggled with managing their physical health conditions (e.g. diabetes, cancer, coronary heart disease, ME). I also worked with families and adults facing difficulties related to terminal diagnosis, such as adjustment, anxiety, depression, grief and bereavement.
I am able to work with individuals with a broad range of difficulties who want to make changes in their lives, improve their well-being and/or enhance their quality of life. I have a specific interest in working with individuals of all ages with physical health problems and neurodevelopmental conditions. At Elpis Psychology I aim to provide professional, warm and dedicated service that instills hope and new meaning in people's lives.
