Profile

I am a Clinical Psychologist, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

My qualifications are:

  • BSc (Hons) Psychology, Surrey University
  • Professional Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (ClinPsyD), University of East London
  • Postgraduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (PGDip), Royal Holloway, University of London

I have experience working in both hospital and primary care settings within the NHS, in clinical and managerial roles.  Clinically, I have worked extensively with adults presenting with a variety of mental health difficulties and specialise in helping clients with anxiety, depression, sexual health issues and living with long term physical health conditions.

My main approach to clinical practice draws primarily upon cognitive behavioural therapy, which provides strategies for managing a range of mental health difficulties. Where appropriate, I also draw on other psychological models and interventions.  I work collaboratively with my clients and value the role that a trusting, positive therapeutic relationship has in aiding recovery.  I am particularly interested in how a client understands and describes their mental health; this can be useful in changing perceptions and giving clients a different view of what they might bring to therapy.

I have significant experience in supervisory roles within the NHS for trainee and qualified therapists and have delivered teaching at different universities.
