I am chartered by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and a registered member of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
My qualifications are:
I am an Advanced Certified Schema Therapist, and registered accordingly with the International Society of Schema Therapy.
Following my undergraduate degree and before qualifying in clinical psychology, I worked for a number of years in business. This has given me a broader perspective on the challenges faced by many of my clients and their families.
I have experience working with a wide variety of clients and using different therapeutic approaches. My areas of special interest and experience, include anxiety, depression, eating disorders, difficulties with self-esteem and personality disorders. I specialise in working with clients with more longstanding difficulties.
I work predominantly using Schema Therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), but do integrate other therapeutic models when required.
I have worked in the NHS for a number of years and continue to maintain links with the doctoral training course at Oxford University, for which I provide teaching.
