About me

I am an experienced clinical psychologist with over 15 years of experience working in the NHS including supervising and managing other psychologists.

The title �Clinical Psychologist� is a protected term, meaning only people who have undergone specialist training can call themselves a Clinical Psychologist. In the UK, all Clinical Psychologists must be registered with the Health Care Professions Council as a �Practitioner Psychologist�. My HCPC registration code is PYL28663.

Clinical psychologists have a broad training and so I have knowledge of several different therapeutic models. My general approach is �integrative� which means that I draw on different therapeutic approaches to understand your concerns. This allows for a more individualised experience of therapy. I believe in a collaborative approach and see the therapeutic relationship as key to facilitating change. I also believe in working in a way that promotes people�s strengths and values and helps people to come to their own conclusions about how to move forward and manage their difficulties.

I have substantial experience in offering brief to medium-term (6 to 20 sessions) Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for common mental health problems. I also have experience in short-term and longer-term psychodynamic psychotherapy. Psychodynamic psychotherapy can be useful when problems are more deep-rooted or long-standing, or were there are particular problems in relationships that need to be worked on and understood.

In a first meeting we would spend time talking together about what is happening in your life to try and come to a psychological understanding of your difficulties. This would involve thinking about what has happened in your life to make you vulnerable to feeling particular ways, defining the current problem, and thinking about what ways you may be thinking or behaving that might keep the problem going. We would also think about what resilience and strengths you have, which might be recruited to help with the problem. An assessment, may happen over 1-3 sessions, depending on the particular problem. We would then discuss a plan for therapy which would include discussion of the likely number of sessions.

If you think talking therapy could help you, and would like to meet with me to think about this further, please get in touch.
