I am a Clinical Psychologist with over 9 years experience as a mental health professional. I have experience working with both children and adults experiencing a wide range of mental health difficulties.
I work using a number of different psychological approaches, to provide personalised psychological therapy, tailored to suit each person’s needs. My therapeutic style is open and collaborative, recognising that we both bring our own expertise and experiences into our shared therapeutic space.

I look forward to hearing from you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I currently work in a NHS secondary care mental health service, offering psychological therapy to support people with complex mental health needs, in addition to private practice.
I have worked at a specialist trauma service providing interventions for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), primarily using Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), a specialist Veteran's service providing assessment and consultation for ex-service personnel, and specialist psychosis services. I have also worked at a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) where I worked with young people experiencing a wide range of psychological difficulties.
Following doctoral training (Doctorate Clinical Psychology), I completed Level 3 training in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).
I am trained to work using a range of therapeutic approaches and am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and a member of EMDR UK and Ireland.
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 (HCPC)
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.
