About me

I am an experienced chartered clinical psychologist working with adults from 18 up seeking psychological therapy and counselling.

I am able to help people with a range of difficulties including anxiety, depression, loss and bereavement, trauma, adjustment to physical illness, relationship difficulties, dealing with transitions such as going to university, retirement and much more.

I provide both shorter term interventions such as cognitive behavioural therapy and longer term psychodynamic psychotherapy.   A detailed assessment will help to establish the type of therapy which is most likely to help you at the moment.

I abide by the highest ethical standards and am accoutable to several regulatory bodies.

As well as my therapy service I provide specialist supervision to counsellors, therapists and psychologists who may wish to develop their skills in either psychodynamic ways of thinking and/ or work with older people.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have 15 years of post qualification experience in the NHS.   

Training in clinical psychology is extensive and involves completion of both undergraduate and doctoral level training which takes at least 6 years. As a profession it is regulated by the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) And the British Psychological Society (BPS). I have also undertaken further specialist training in psychodynamic psychotherapy and am accredited by the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC).  I am a member of the North of England Association for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapists (NEAPP).  

Prior to this training I also obtained a Master of Philosophy in child head injury.

My two areas of particular expertise are psychodynamic psychotherapy and working with older adults. I am currently co editor of a national journal for clinical psychologists working with older adults.
