I am a Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Chartered Psychologist and Scientist 

and a Practitioner Psychologist registered with the

Health and Care Professions Council.

Qualifications & Training

I completed my BSc (Hons) Psychology with Clinical Psychology at the University of Kent and went on to complete my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Hertfordshire in 2007. During my training I gained experience in four core areas: adults, older adults, child and family mental health and learning disabilities. In my final year I gained experience in psychodynamic psychotherapy for adults and young people at the world-renowned Tavistock Clinic in London.

Experience

Since qualifying I have worked in the NHS and I am currently Head of Service for Older People's Psychology across the south of Essex. I am an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society and I have held a Visiting Lecturer post at the University of Hertfordshire. I regularly teach on Clinical Psychology Doctoral courses at local Universities, I am a Personal Advisor to trainee clinical psychologists and I am responsible for providing a clinical psychology placement for trainees in the area. I have extensive experience of supervising assistant, trainee and qualified clinical psychologists, as well as other mental health professionals.

My Therapeutic Style

I have expertise in treating a wide spectrum of psychological issues. I have a special interest in helping clients manage anxiety and depression. I use an integrative approach in my work, and draw on cognitive behaviour therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, psychodynamic and mindfulness approaches.

 

I am committed to open and transparent clinical practice so that my clients can have confidence that I am ethical, professional and that my work is of high quality. I have an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, I have professional indemnity insurance and I am registered with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO).
