A Clinical Psychologist is a mental health professional who has doctoral level training in working with people from children up to older adults. We use a variety of recognised assessment tools and therapeutic approaches. Clinical Psychologists tailor support based on the person’s needs and preferences. As part of my training and ongoing development I have attended therapy myself.
I worked with both adults and children within the NHS after completing training in 2007. Most recently I held the senior role of Principal Clinical Psychologist, managing a team of qualified psychologists in a family service, before setting up in Independent Practice. During my career I have presented at conferences, taught trainee psychologists, published research and written a book chapter.
I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), British Psychological Society (BPS) and British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).
