I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist and Accredited Cognitive Analytic Therapist with fifteen years’ experience working in the NHS, in addition to the private sector. I am currently the Principal Psychologist for a busy NHS Eating Disorders Service and while this is my primary speciality, I have considerable experience working with clients with a range of mental health problems, including depression and low mood, anxiety, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorders, addictions, and generalised worry. I am committed to evidence-based psychological treatments, in other words, the treatments that have been proven to work best, but also strongly believe that therapy has to be tailored and effective for each individual in achieving their own unique goals.
As a Clinical Psychologist, I have only ever worked in areas of mental health where people can find change notoriously difficult, not least eating disorders, personality disorders, and addictions. In my current roles I provide psychological therapy for people with a range of difficulties, and I also supervise and manage other psychologists and therapists. I therefore have training, qualifications and experience in a range of models and techniques that help people achieve change in their lives.
Alongside my direct clinical work I’m experienced in teaching and training, including presentation at the annual conference of the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies, training and consultation in models of therapy and mental health problems to professionals and carers, and regular supervision of other therapists and psychologists.
