About me

As an experienced Psychologist (13 years quallified), I am very effective in a range of areas, including psychosis (where I have a great deal of clinical and research experience, and have written a book) and PTDS. I am skilled in CBT, systemic, EMDR, mindfulness, ACT and solution-focused therapies.
In the NHS I have supervisory responsibilities in a range of areas, covering most areas of mental health. My post in the Crisis Resolution Service is very much at the “sharp end” of mental health, and demands virtuosity in most aspects of clinical psychology – coming into high-risk, fast-moving situations and making speedy interventions, leading a team response and directing future care.
I have a particular expertise in CBT for Insomnia - this is the best evidenced treatment for poor sleep, also I am possibly the only CBT for insomnia practitioner in London.
Since qualifying I have worked primarily in the NHS, but also as a lecturer in Birmingham and Royal Holloway universities. I was the External Examiner for the UCL Clinical Doctorate training programme from 2005-2008.
