About Us


If you are on here it's likely you have decided it's time to seek some support for yourself or your loved one. That something is not quite right. It can be daunting reaching out so I celebrate you taking the time out to do this. Life can get so hectic it’s easy to keep pushing on hoping that the empty sadness/ the low mood/ the ongoing worrying/ the awful memories/the disconnect will ease up or to busy ourselves with the multitude of distractions to numb ourselves for a while.

Evidence shows us that, to gain effective skills on navigating our mental health challenges and making lasting change, working with a Clinical Psychologist, that has undergone years of specialised training, is worth the effort.

What We Offer

Clinical Assessment

All of our clinicians receive rigorous clinical training and ongoing continuous professional development to ensure a thorough initial assessment is achieved. We are passionate about this step of the process here at our practice to ensure it fully informs the treatment designed for you.


This part of the treatment process is where your clinician will share with you the outcomes of their initial assessment and most importantly why what is happening for you continues to be a challenge.


Your treatment plan is devised specifically to address what is presenting for you. Your clinician will explain the various different treatment therapy approaches. As Psychologists we only provide evidence-based therapy treatments. This means these treatments have been trialled across a range of people and produce effective outcomes. We value the therapeutic relationship and will always ensure you feel supported even when you are being challenged.

Our Therapy


Perinatal Mental Health is an area of speciality we are deeply passionate about. Navigating the physical, hormonal and emotional changes in pregnancy can be incredibly lonely and overwhelming. It can be so hard to reach out and let someone know this when there is such pressure for this period of time to be only joyful. We offer assessment and tailored support to assist in the pre and post natal period as well as addressing former trauma that may be impacting on your current journey. We also work closely with your birth team and have great colleagues to assist with all the other aspects involved in pregnancy to ensure you can unfold into and embrace Mummahood.

Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through accurate assessment and treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.


Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. After a thorough assessment and formulation we have a range of treatment therapies that we discuss with you (EMDR, CBT, Family Therapy, Schema Therapy, ACT) to ensure an effective, individual therapy meets your needs.

Men's Mental Health

Supporting men to address their mental health challenges is something we are passionate about at Inner Calm for several reasons.

Firstly, no-one is an island. Promoting an awareness of Mental Health in the community is exactly that, Mental Health needs to involve everyone.

While the stigma of being perceived as 'weak' or 'incapable' is slowly lessening for men regarding reaching out for help with their mental health challenges, sadly it is still THE MAIN BARRIER that stop males accessing professional assessment and treatment. This is a really important aspect to digest. Men do not seek support for their mental health not because they don't think they need it, not because they have no time and not because they can't financially, they are staying silent and suffering to avoid judgement.
