Oonagh has over ten years experience working as a clinical psychologist within the NHS, and has developed considerable expertise in the field of clinical health psychology which focuses on helping people overcome psychological difficulties associated with physical health problems. She has worked in a number of health care settings, with people who have a range of conditions such as asthma, cardiac disease, and chronic pain. In addition to this she works with difficulties including anxiety, panic, depression, post traumatic stress disorder, relationship difficulties, adjustment to a new health diagnosis and bereavement.
Oonagh is an empathic clinician, and has a warm and gentle approach. In her work she draws on a range of therapeutic models including cognitive behavioural therapy, and more recently she has incorporated mindfulness ideas into her work, as well as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). Oonagh works collaboratively with her clients to develop a shared understanding of the current situation, and from this, develop goals that are consistent with the client’s hopes and values.
