About me

I am an HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist with over 30 years experience of working within the NHS in a variety of settings including Primary Care, CAMHS, CMHT, Dentistry and General Medicine. I have considerable experience of psychological assessment and intervention with adults presenting with a range of difficulties including adjustment to long-term medical conditions and chronic ill health; trauma; anxiety disorders and depression.I have specific expertise in working with people who have kidney disease and dental anxiety/phobia. I have a warm and compassionate approach to my work with clients and recognise the impact that long-term conditions can have on clients' overall quality of life.
I have contributed to high quality health-related research over the years and have published in a number of peer-reviewed journals. I was part of the NAP5 steering panel in relation to Accidental Awareness during General Anaesthesia in the UK. I continue to work within the NHS alongside my private practice.
I am trained in a number of approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Trauma-Based CBT. I have many years' experience working with clients who have experienced psychological trauma including in relation to their experience of surgery; medical procedures; in-patient admissions; and past dental treatment; as well as women who have experienced traumatic childbirth.
