About me

Psych D, BSc (Hons); Consultant Clinical Psychologist.
Helping people reduce their distress, especially in relation to chronic health problems; using predominantly CBT, ACT and mindfulness approaches.

I undertook my undergraduate degree at Leeds University and completed my Doctorate at Surrey University in 2003. I now have more than 18 years post qualification experience working primarily with patients with chronic pain and long term health conditions, in various specialist hospitals and services. These have included the Pain Management Centre at the National hospital for Neurology & Neurosurgery, the general Medicine service at the Whittington Hospital and INPUT pain management centre based at St Thomas’ Hospital. I was also clinical lead, setting up a new single point of entry comprehensive pain service, developing various pain management programmes, alongside meeting individual psychological needs at the Locomotor Service in Homerton Community Services.

I now solely work in private practice and predominantly focus on the management of pain and various health conditions. Using predominantly CBT and ACT approaches, I specialize in the adjustment and psychological management of long term conditions; aiming to help people manage the associated distress and impact these can have on a person’s life. Also aiming to identify and break any unhelpful cycles that may have developed in relation to the pain and or condition and work toward improving quality of life. I work primarily with the individual but will also work with couples/families where there are relationship issues associated.

Whilst I specialize in health related difficulties, I am also able to accept referrals for distress and difficulties in isolation from any health concerns.
