MA (Hons), DClinPsych

HCPC registered Contact


I am a registered member of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and a member of the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).

My qualifications are:

  • Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (D.Clin.Psych), Oxford University
  • Postgrad. Certificate in Advanced Trauma Studies
  • Postgrad. Diploma in Evidence Based Psychological Therapies, Reading University
  • Postgrad. Diploma in Supervision, Reading University
  • BSc (Hons), Reading University

I use a number of different therapeutic approaches, so I can adapt treatment to suit clients’ individual needs. I have further post-doctoral training in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), Schema Therapy and Emotion Focused Couples Therapy and EMDR (level 3 accredited).

I work with a wide variety of clients, primarily adults and adolescents. My areas of special interest and experience include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety and stress, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and difficulties with self-esteem.

Prior to qualifying in clinical psychology, I worked for a number of years in management, commissioning and strategy roles. I have worked clinically in the NHS for a number of years and currently work as a specialist psychologist in a service for post-traumatic stress disorder. I’m also a clinical tutor at Reading University lecturing and supervising trainee cognitive behavioural therapists. I am also a BABCP accredited therapist and supervisor.
