I qualified as a Chartered Clinical Psychologist in 2011 and have significant experience working with adults experiencing a range of mental health, physical health and/or neurological difficulties.  I have worked in a range of settings, including within primary care / IAPT services, secondary care, inpatient (mental health and physical health hospital settings) and forensic services. I have held a Clinical Lead and Principal Clinical Psychologist role within NHS settings.  I have extensive experience in consultation, supervision and teaching / training. 

I have worked with a wide-range of psychological and mental health difficulties, providing highly specialist assessment, formulation and evidence-based interventions (individually and/or within groups) tailored to individual needs and their personal goals. I have helped people in managing their experiences of anxiety, anger, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), physical health (e.g., pain, chronic illness, weight management) and neurological conditions (e.g., traumatic brain injury, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s), relationship difficulties, stress and managing life transitions, self-esteem and sleep difficulties. I have  also supported people with enduring mental health difficulties (e.g., psychosis, bipolar, and personality complexities).  

I enjoy working in an integrative manner, with particular interest in: 

·       Neuropsychological, Cognitive Rehabilitation and Systemic Approaches

·       Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)

·       Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT)

·       Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

·       Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) 

·       Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT).

·       Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).

I completed my undergraduate psychology degree at The University of Sheffield and my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at The University of Manchester. I have completed the Postgraduate Diploma in Clinical Neuropsychology at The University of Glasgow.  Finally, I have also completed a BPS-accredited supervisory training course at The University of Manchester.  I have also attended a number of Advanced Supervision workshops.

Having developed my independent practice over the past 3 years, I have a keen interest in supporting / coaching newly independent practitioners in developing their own practice and developing their confidence in this development.

Wheelchair user access

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.
