I first knew I wanted to be a Clinical Psychologist when I was 14 years old and a film ignited my fascination. Many years on, and to this day I continue to be passionate about the work I do. I am committed to enabling individuals to live a more fulfilling life, by helping them move in the direction of their values and what is important to them.
I qualified as a Clinical Psychologist from the University of Southampton in 2011. This core training has laid a solid foundation for my career as a Clinical Psychologist and developing expertise. My Clinical Psychology training enables me to work flexibly, adapting a broad range of approaches to the needs of a variety of client groups including children and adolescents, adults of working age, older adults and individuals with learning disabilities. Since qualifying I have worked in NHS Adult Community Mental Health settings. I continue to work in the NHS as a Principal Clinical Psychologist in a Community Mental Health Team (CMHT) on a part-time basis, having started working for the NHS in 2003.
Areas of interest
I work with adults of working age.
The difficulties I work with are wide-ranging, and include (but are not limited to):
Anxiety Disorders (e.g. phobias, panic, OCD, social anxiety, health anxiety);
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (for single or multiple traumas);
Emotion regulation difficulties
My practice is evidence-based and integrative; I predominantly draw upon Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). I use a person-centred style, tailoring my approach to the needs of those I work with.
