I qualified as a clinical psychologist in 2007 which was the culmination of 12 years of study and practice, and have worked in a variety of settings with adults and children since.
I am passionate about promoting positive mental health for all and that's why I enjoy providing psychological therapy to a range of people, regardless of age or difficulty/diagnosis.
I engage in regular supervision and my practice is carefully regulated both by the Health and Care Professions Council and the British Psychological Society.
I am also keen to access as much training and personal development as I can to ensure that the services I provide to my clients are evidence-based, appropriate and most likely to be helpful to them.

Courses offered to GPs
I am happy to attend surgeries in the Cheadle, Sale, Altrincham and Stretford areas to talk about the work a clinical psychologist does and specific topics such as depression, anxiety, OCD plus others.
I use psychometric outcome measures (different questionnaires) in all therapy cases (unless this is contra indicated) so that the client and I can collaboratively explore change and progress over time.
Post treatment communication
Following treatment of a Bupa member, I will communicate with GPs in line with Department of Health, GMC and appropriate professional bodies guidelines.
