Training, qualifications & experience
I trained as a Clinical Psychologist and have thirty years experience working in the NHS. I have held senior positions in a service which offers assessment and treatment to people who were referred from General Practitioners and Psychiatrists and psychiatric teams. My experience of psychological problems is wide and I have supervised Clinical Psychologists, Behavioural Psychotherapists and Psychosexual Counsellors.
In addition to anxiety and depressive problems, I have worked with people with complex and trauma related difficulties. I ran a psychosexual counselling service for 15 years.
Qualifications and affiliations: B.A. in Psychology; M.Sc. in Clinical Psychology (1977); Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society; member of BPS Division of Clinical Psychology (former Scottish Chair); registered with Health Care Professions Council.
My original therapeutic training was in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which I have continued to update and use. I am familiar with other therapeutic models in which I have been supervised: Mindfulness, Solution Focussed Therapy, ACT. I have completed training recently in therapeutic models which have been developed to help those with a history of complex trauma (DBR, CRM and Brainspotting).
