About me

I am a Consultant Clinical Psychologist specialising in working with adolescents and adults. My areas of expertise include self-harm, anxiety, low mood and depression and trauma (including abuse). After working for 17 years in the NHS I now work as an independent psychologist and part time as the Clinical and Governance Lead in a private Looked After Child and Adolescent Service.

I am based in Whitefield, North Manchester and Rochdale.

I also provide consultation to Social Care staff, CAFCASS and Police and complete expert witness assessments for family courts.
