I qualified as a Clinical Psychologist in 1990 and since then I have worked in a range of diverse mental health settings both in Spain and the UK. In addition to my Doctorate, I have also completed a Master’s Degree and Post-Graduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I am registered with the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC) and I am a Chartered member of the British Psychological Society.
I have worked in the NHS for 18 years both in inpatient and community services, and I have delivered individual therapy, group-based interventions and supervision. For the past 11 years, I held the position of Head of Adult Community Psychology Service in the NHS and I have been responsible for the delivery of highly specialist psychological assessments and effective evidence based interventions to working age adults.

I remain invested in my own professional development, and ensure that I continue to offer psychological therapy that is innovative and forward thinking. I am highly respected in my professional field and remain committed to ensuring excellence in my clinical work.
