About me

I qualified as a clinical psychologist in 1991 and have been working in the NHS since that point in time. From 1999 I have worked as a consultant clinical psychologist. My therapeutic approach is eclectic, drawing upon cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), interpersonal therapy, cognitive analytic therapy and also other psychotherapeutic approaches.

My degrees are a BSc in psychology, as well as an MSc and Doctorate in clinical psychology. I have also an MA in Leadership (MA in Leading Innovation and Change) and a BA in fine art.

I currently work for two days at Newcastle University as programme director for the post-graduate certificate in low intensity psychological therapies. For the rest of my week I work in private practice.

I have published widely, my research papers are primarily related to his clinical work in the NHS. I am the lead author of a text book about practicing psychological therapy, an associate editor for a scientific journal and the editor for a series of self-help books.
