About me

She obtained a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 2004 and is registered as a Practitioner Psychologist with the Health & Care Professions Council (PYL19234), a Chartered Clinical Psychologist, a Graduate Member and Fellowship Member of the British Psychological Society and the Division of Clinical Psychology (Membership No. 040590). Adele is also a member of the EMDR Association, UK and Ireland (Membership No. J148).

From 2004 to 2010, Adele worked within a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service, working with a wide range of generic mental health difficulties, including anxiety based problems (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Phobias, Health Anxiety, Panic Attacks, Separation Anxiety), and depression following adverse life events, such as bereavement and loss.

Adele also spent six years as a Lead Clinical Psychologist within a specialist Looked After and Adopted Children’s Mental Health Team and has specialist experience working with children and young adults who have experienced complex trauma and severe attachment difficulties.

Adele has been working in independent practice since 2007 offering psychological assessment and therapeutic work across the age range. She has considerable experience in carrying out assessments for the Local Authority to address the psychological effects of trauma.

She has extensive experience using attachment-based interventions, through direct clinical work, employing a dyadic approach with children suffering from the impact of past attachment trauma, consultation meetings with social services departments for children in foster care and adoptive placements, supporting residential workers within children's units, as well as clinical supervision.

Since 2007 Adele has also carried out medico legal assessments and reports, by legal instruction, regarding the psychological effects of trauma, including PTSD. She has experience of a number of therapeutic orientations, with particular emphasis on attachment-based therapies, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR).

Adele is also the founder of Northern Clinical Psychology Services (NCPS), a private organisation that provides psychological assessment and therapies across Yorkshire (please click on the website link). As such, Adele spends a significant proportion of her time developing and shaping the service in order to ensure that individuals receive an excellent dedicated service in their assessment and treatment.
