Saved Save profile

I am a Consultant Clinical Psychologist who provides supervision for psychologists, therapists, counselors and other professionals. 

In keeping with my client work I offer a safe space in which to explore any clinical or process issues that you may bring.

Working in healthcare for twenty years has allowed me to learn that being able to truly express our emotional reactions (to our clients and services!) and have them contained without fear of professional judgement is key to practicing in a ethical and safe manner, and avoiding burnout. 

I work using an integrative model and ensure that a comprehensive psychological formulation underpins clinical work. In addition to adult mental health, child and family and learning disability experience, I have specialist experience in working with complex presentations including; personality disorder, psychosis, trauma, forensic populations, and the dynamics within services who support these client groups. 

I have developed innovative psychology services within inpatient psychiatric care, with a focus on compassionate mind therapy based approaches, systemic working and psychology formulation based staff training. I regularly run training groups for psychiatrists, nurses, managers and other healthcare staff.

I believe that everyone working in a therapeutic capacity should have access to a wide range of clinical experience from their supervisor combined with the feel of a relaxed and ordinary conversation. As a result I have selected very comfortable chairs for you to enjoy the sea view from my clinic in Ayr, and I will always have tea and coffee available for you on arrival.
