I am a Clinical Psychologist. I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and am an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society. I worked for the NHS for 18 years, specialising in the psychology of adults, adolescents and children. I set up in independent practice in 2005.
My work requires me to assess, formulate and treat the difficulties of children, adolescents and adults. I regularly work with people with a wide range of emotional and physical health problems, including obesity and eating distress, self-harm, ADHD, OCD, anxiety, depression, trauma, and challenging behaviours. I work with adults, children and families who are coming to terms with traumatic experiences, separation, bereavement, physical health problems and medical diagnoses.
I studied Psychology (BA Hons.) at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne and worked in adolescent in-patient units in the north east of England for 2 years.I completed my doctoral level training in Clinical Psychology in 2003. I worked for the NHS with young people and their families in East Lancashire for 13 years.
I have completed post-doctoral training in a number of different psychological models. My approach draws on cognitive, behavioural, solution-focused, systemic and narrative psychological models. I provide individualised assessment and treatment sessions tailored according to a client’s needs and personality.
