About me

I have worked in the area of mental health for nearly 30 years. This has included a variety of NHS settings, e.g. outpatients, psychiatric in-patient unit, and crisis team. It has also included working in the private practice sector since 2004. I have training and expertise in a whole range of mental health difficulties, from common mental health problems, to more complex and enduring conditions such as personality disorder. I offer a personalised service guided by best evidence.
I trained as a clinical psychologist in 2001 and further specialised in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) at postgraduate level.
For 10 years I provided formal training in CBT for people working in mental health settings, as a senior lecturer at the University of Southampton, and I continue to contribute on a consultancy basis. Consequently I have an excellent understanding of college and university life, and can help students who may benefit from talking therapies.
