About me

As a Consultant Clinical Psychologist, I am extremely passionate about enhancing emotional resilience and psychological wellbeing. Being a consultant involves higher level work, including work in the most complex issues in my area of practice and offering clinical leadership to teams and services as well as with individuals.

I have worked in a variety of mental health settings, including primary care based in GP surgeries, homeless settings, early intervention, assertive outreach, medical psychology, learning disabilities, eating disorders, CAMHs, community rehabilitation and staff support services. I have served as an expert member of a NICE guidelines committee representing mental health and substance misuse perspectives. I have developed and lead services, supported other organisations, staff teams as well as working clinically with individuals experiencing severe and multiple disadvantages.

In my private practice, I place a great emphasis on offering a warm, compassionate and non-judgmental therapeutic atmosphere which provides each person. I offer short-term and long-term therapy to adults with a goal to assist you in gaining a better understanding of yourself and in your relationships, as well as equipping you with the tools to cope more effectively.
