I am a BPS Chartered Counselling Psychologist with a BSc Hons in Psychology (University of Wales, Cardiff), a Postgraduate Diploma in Cognitive Therapy (University of Oxford) and a Practitioner Doctorate in Counselling Psychology (University of Surrey). I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). I have undertaken postgraduate training in clinical supervision and I am an Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist and Supervisor with the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).
I have practised as a Counselling Psychologist for 18 years, in the NHS, Higher Education and private settings, offering individual and group CBT, training and supervision to other mental health professionals. I have taught CBT nationally and internationally on behalf of Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre. I have also worked for the University of Oxford Mindfulness Centre, where I was extensively involved in training and teaching Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT).
My clinical experience is in helping adults with a broad range of mild-moderate mental health problems including depression, anxiety and complex trauma/post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Clients also come to see me for help with managing painful emotions, coping with loss, building self-esteem and improving relationships. Clinically, I use a range of psychological models including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and mindfulness-based approaches. I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).
I hold professional indemnity insurance and I am registered with the Information Commissioners Office. I am also registered provider with Bupa and other insurers.
