About me

I am a Clinical Psychologist with 14 years of post-doctoral experience in clinical practice. I work with children, young people and adults. I can help with mental health difficulties, coping with medical conditions, support during life transitions such as divorce and separation, becoming a parent or returning to work. I also provide paediatric neuropsychological assessment and neurorehabilitation. I work with a number of evidence based therapy models. I work with people with or without learning difficulties or sensory impairments. As well as reactive services, I also provide proactive services around increasing motivation, increasing self esteem and confidence and understanding your brain function. I hope to hear from you soon.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a degree in Psychology and a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. I also have two post-doctoral diplomas, in Clinical Paediatric Neuropsychology and in Healthcare Management. I have worked in a number of Clinical Psychology and Neuropsychology services within the NHS in Scotland and England as well as in private practice. I have therefore provided psychological services to thousands of people over the years.

I have published research and presented at international conference. I have provided teaching and training on various university courses. I have supervised and line managed other Psychologists.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access Unspecified

I am happy to arrange sessions in an accessible location if this is helpful.
