I am a fully qualified Chartered Clinical Psychologist, which means I have a degree in Psychology and a Doctorate Qualification in Clinical Psychology. I have also had further training in Systemic Family Therapy. I am registered with the British Psychological Society, the Health and care Professionals Council (HCPC) and I am fully insured.
As a Clinical Psychologist, I am trained in a number of disciplines including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Systemic Therapy and Psychodynamic therapy. I tend to use a combined approach tailored to suit the particular issues involved and also the person/people I am working with.
I have been working in the NHS for almost 20 years helping many families through their difficulties, and for the last 10 years in an innovative award-winning NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS).
I also provide consultations and training to organisations and groups around parenting and mental health. I have consulted to NCT groups, parent groups, cultural institutions such as the RSC and schools. I also supervise other Clinical and Counselling Psychologists.
For the last 9 years I have been working in private practice. I am also a parent and have three children.
