I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and a member of the British Psychological Society. I have nearly ten years post-qualification experience working within the NHS and have worked in a variety of services with a diverse group of patients during this time.
I have previously worked in primary care Talking Therapies IAPT using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to treat a range of difficulties linked to anxiety and depression. I have also worked with more complex mental health presentations within secondary care services, drawing upon Compassion-Focused and Narrative Therapy models, as well as psychodynamic approaches to help understand longstanding relational difficulties.
I also have experience of working in more specialist services, using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ACT to support people with adjustment to chronic pain and other long-term health conditions.
A major interest of mine is understanding how unhelpful patterns of social interaction may be reinforcing low self-esteem and maintaining unhappiness and distress. I have experience in my clinical work of focusing on relational difficulties between couples or between inter-generational family members.
I also have interest in providing therapy for older adults, with experience of working with issues related to bereavement and carer stress.
