Melanie started working in the NHS in 1992, qualified as a Clinical Psychologist in 1996 and afterwards worked in the NHS across mental health services in Birmingham and Solihull.
Originally having experience working with older people, Melanie then went on to develop expertise in psychology services for adults of working age in Community Mental Health Teams. She achieved Consultant Grade in 2007 and took a lead in developing initiatives for the provision of psychology services in the inner city. Doing this gave her a wealth of clinical experience in working with a large range of clinical presentations including Depression, Anxiety disorders, Eating Disorders, Psychosis and Personality disorders. Melanie has a long held interest in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder which is her clinical specialism and the area she has researched and provided specialist supervision and training for. She has been a qualified EMDR practitioner since 2009.
Melanie gained a post-graduate diploma in Cognitive Therapy from Oxford University in 2001 and since then has provided teaching and supervision to trainee Clinical Psychologists and CBT practitioners on courses at The University of Birmingham. She currently works as a lecturer at the University of Birmingham in the School of Psychology. She is accredited Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapist with the BABCP.
