Qualifications, Training and Experience
The majority of my training and experience has been in the NHS where I have worked with a range of different client groups and problems. I have worked in primary and secondary care as well as in various specialist services. For example, for people with post traumatic stress disorder, alcohol misuse, and eating disorders. I have also worked in the voluntary and private sector as a psychologist specialising in pre and post natal support.
I have been fully qualified as a Chartered Counselling Psychologist since 2007. My qualification has provided me with a particular combination of skills; the specialist mental health training of an applied psychologist and the listening expertise of a counsellor.
I am trained and experienced in a number of therapeutic models:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Person Centred Therapy
Interpersonal Therapy (IPT)
I also use various tools and concepts from other psychotherapeutic models:
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
Solution Focussed Therapy
Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
