About me

I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist with 15 years experience of working in different NHS settings. I work with individuals with a wide variety of difficulties such as low mood and depression, anxiety related difficulties (generalised anxiety disorder, phobias, panic, obsessive compulsive disorder, and stress), anger, difficulties in managing emotions, PTSD and trauma related difficulties. I also have long experience and extensive training in working with individuals with personality disorders.

Initially when you meet with me, I carry out an assessment of your difficulties. The assessment forms the basis of a clinical formulation which is drawn up together with you and brings together the assessment information with psychological theory. The formulation helps us understand your difficulties from a psychological perspective and decide on what therapeutic help you may need. In terms of therapy, I draw on a range of evidence-based therapeutic approaches (including CBT and psychodynamic approaches). For personality related difficulties I use Mentalisation based therapy (MBT) and Dialectic Behavioural Therapy (DBT) approaches.

Assessment session: 1.5 hours

During my training as a clinical psychologist I gained experience of working with children and adults with a variety of psychological needs. Since qualifying I have worked within the NHS in forensic in-patient and community settings, and in a specialised Personality Disorder service.
