About me

I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist and the founder of my private practice, DCP Therapy. I have vast experience of assessing and treating adults with a range of psychological problems and diagnoses. With over 16 years experience in the NHS and having held senior positions there, my independent practice fosters the clinical skills of joint working with other relevant parties when necessary. A tailor-made approach is taken to help clients build psychological resilience to improve relationships and foster healthy emotional and physical well-being.

I specialise in treatment following recent traumatic experiences (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and childhood traumas.

As a Chartered Clinical Psychologist, I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and British Psychological Society (BPS).

I offer therapy for adults with psychological problems that may have come about as a result of a life event or a formal mental health diagnosis.

Within private practice, I offer modern evidence-based interventions as well as approaches that draw from cognitive, behavioural, attachment, experiential and psychodynamic principles. These include;

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  • Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT)
  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
  • Affect Phobia Therapy (APT) - experiential dynamic therapy (psychodynamic)

In some cases. I take an integrative approach to therapy if this is deemed to be more beneficial for the client. That is, drawing from a combination of therapeutic models rather than following one.

Prior to leaving the NHS, I held a senior role at the Institute of Psychotrauma in London and established a psychology service within a major Trauma Centre at an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Department. The role involved assessments, brief and long-term therapy for adults with severe and enduring mental illness.
