About

The relationship between mind and body

I’m a psychologist specialising in the effects of stress on physcial and mental health. The difference between me and a life coach is that I provide a psychological therapeutic approach to behaviour change, blending mind and body-based practices. My background in research and evidence-based practice can support you to make important changes in your life and work through underlying issues that are holding you back. Working with the body and the mind, I can help you with burnout, feeling overwhelmed and repeating the same behavioural patterns that get in the way of you living the life you deserve.

Helping you improve your health and wellbeing

I’m fascinated with the natural world and the scientific study of health and behaviours. 

I got into psychology because I like being there for people – I’m bursting with love and for me, my profession is just an extension of my personality and my own core beliefs. I believe that, with all of my training and knowledge, psychology is there to be practiced with real people in the real world. Above everything, I believe in kindness, dignity and compassion and I’m always learning from people and their experiences.  

I pride myself on doing my utmost to help people. I’m meticulous and absolutely dedicated to my profession. Everything I do adhears to strict ethical standards by the British Psychological Society and I leave no stone unturned to provide quality psychological intervention.

Why Am I Called Mind-body?

Modern psychological research and age-old evidenced-based practices demonstrate that health is a whole-body experience; therefore, I include practices that work with the body and the mind. Eastern traditions see the mind and body as one entity and it’s known as mind-body.  I use yoga as one of the body-focused approaches to work with the nervous system and its impact on overall health.

Qualifications and training route

Training routes in psychology can differ from person to person and depending on the discipline area, there are different requirements. I hold graduate basis for chartered membership with the British Psychological Society which is a prerequisite for my doctoral studies in Health Psychology at Liverpool John Moores University. This means that although I am currently a Psychologist, I am also classed as a Health Psychologist in Training until I have completed my professional doctorate within the next year. Once complete, I am eligable for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council as a Chartered Health Psychologist.
