I work primarily with adults with a range of mental health difficulties including anxiety, panic, depression, relationship difficulties, PTSD and reactions to traumatic experiences, phobias, OCD, intrusive thoughts, work and exam stress, attachment difficulties and more.

Training, qualifications & experience
I completed my undergraduate MA(Hons) degree in psychology at Glasgow University in 2007, my Masters Degree in Public Health at Dundee University in 2011, and my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Edinburgh in 2015. I have worked in the NHS for ten years in a range of general adult and specialist mental health services, across three different health boards in Scotland. Most of my experience has involved working within Community Mental Health Teams, and inpatient services, undertaking individual and group interventions with adults with moderate to severe mental health difficulties.
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
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.
