I am a Clinical Psychologist who offers psychological assessment and treatment for a wide range of difficulties. In my NHS posts, I work in an HIV & Sexual Health service and a specialist mental health team that provides input to inpatients and outpatients struggling with physical health problems. I am particularly experienced at seeing people and couples presenting with sexual difficulties, such as painful sex or unreliable erections. I also have a specialist interest in anxiety disorders and the application of cognitive behavioural therapy in its treatment.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have completed doctoral-level training in multiple therapeutic approaches: psychodynamic, systemic and cognitive behavioural therapies. This means that I can draw on a wide range of psychological theories and treatments to make sense of your difficulties and plan a tailored treatment plan that is effective.
In addition to a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of Essex, an MSc in Health Psychology from UCL, I am currently completing clinical training in psychosexual and relationship psychotherapy. I have completed additional trainings in EMDR therapy and administering the ADOS-2, which is an assessment for Autistic Spectrum Disorder.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
