About me

I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist. I am also a Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) Practitioner. I have over 18 years experience of providing assessment and psychological therapies.

I work with adults and adolesecents to help them make sense of their difficulties so they understand their experience better and make better sense of their behaviours and emotions with a new perspective.

The new Jointly created understanding helps clients to feel more in control and helps resolve or manage the psychological impact of their difficulties on their lives. This leads to clients feeling more hopeful and motivated to make progress and also helping themselves to move on rather than feeling 'stuck' and distressed in their particular situations.

Training, qualifications & experience

As I am a Clinical Psychologist, my approach is informed by a range of therapeutic interventions. These include Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion Focused Therapy and Mindfulness.

For helping people to managing their intense and difficult emotions I offer Emotional Coping Skills training which uses aspects of Dialectical Behaviour therapy.

I am also a registered CAT practitioner and use Cognitive Analytic Therapy for more clinically complex presentations.

I am registered with British Psychological Society (BPS) and the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC) as a Practitioner Psychologist.

I work in private practice and also for the NHS where I work for a psychological therapies services within a Community Mental Health Team (CMHT).
