About me

Hi, thank you for clicking on my profile. I hope that what you read and see will encourage you to make contact with me. I am happy to discuss your needs via a 20-30 minute telephone conversation with no charge to yourself. If I am unable to speak to you at the time you call, please leave a brief message and I will call you back within 24 hours.

In a nutshell, I provide short and long-term therapy for a wide range of issues that adolescents and adults of all ages may present with, including people with a learning disability and/or autism spectrum condition.

I am experienced in a variety of assessments, including those to provide insight into cognitive abilities (including strengths and weaknesses); memory assessment; diagnosis of and insight into autism spectrum conditions; and questionnaires to help identify, monitor and evaluate therapeutic interventions.

I put great value on everyone I work with being recognised as a unique individual who has much to offer in the therapeutic relationship. You will always be treated with dignity and respect, and will be a collaborative partner in working towards a formulation of your presenting issues and mutually agreed goals .

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Clinical Psychologist, Registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC); Chartered with the British Psychological Society (BPS), later becoming an Associate Fellow. I joined the Division of Clinical Psychology, within the BPS, in 2004, and became a member of the Learning Disability Faculty in 2008. I gained my doctorate (DClinPsy) from Lancaster University in 2007 and have worked within the NHS since that time, as well as in part-time private practice since 2008. Prior to beginning Clinical Psychology training in 2004, I worked as a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT), for which I hold a Master of Science degree. I also hold a BSc Psychology (Hons) degree.

I regularly undertake continuing professional development (CPD) to ensure my practice is up to date; efficient and effective; that I am fully competent within my practice; and that I provide the best possible evidenced-based care. I receive regular supervision as required by the BPS and HCPC.
