I am a consultant clinical psychologist with over 20 years experience working with adults and children experiencing mental health difficulties. I have completed specialist training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapies (CBT), Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) and Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP), and am an accredited CBT practitioner. I have some specialism in working with neurodiversity and learning disabilities.
Outside of my private practice, I am employed as clinical lead for children and young people's mental health across the South East of England with both NHS England and Health Education England. I am also employed as a training specialist at the University of Sussex.
I am a chartered clinical psychologist and associate fellow of the British Psychological Society (BPS), a registered clinical psychologist with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) and an accredited cognitive and behavioural psychotherapist with the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).
If you would like further details regarding my background, or to consider whether I may be able to help with the difficulties you are currently experiencing, please feel free to contact me.
