About me

I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist and joined the NHS in 2008. I have worked with children, adolescents and adults. I am currently clinical lead in a local IAPT service, supervising, training and supporting a team of CBT therapists, counsellors and low-intensity workers to work with anxiety and depression, including panic, health anxiety, social anxiety, trauma and OCD. I previously worked as clinical lead in a team working with first episode psychosis and used evidence-based therapies, such as CBT for psychosis/bipolar affective disorder and Behavioural Family Therapy (BFT), to provide a more holistic psychological treatment for clients.

I utilise both CBT and Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) for depression as per NICE guidelines. I am working towards accreditation in CBT with BABCP. I use other types of therapy such as Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) and dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) for interpersonal and emotional regulation issues (often diagnosed as borderline personality disorder) and compassion-focused therapy (CFT) for shame-based difficulties and self-criticism. I also undertakes assessment and treatment for medico-legal purposes, including work related to road traffic accidents (RTA).

I have worked in private practice alongside my NHS work since 2014 and have been able to help many clients. Difficulties have ranged from stress to bipolar affective disorder to trauma and/or borderline personality difficulties. I am very passionate about supporting clients in their recovery and will do all I can to alleviate distress.

I am currently offering remote work via SKYPE or ZOOM plus telephone consultations if needed.
