I am a Consultant Clinical Psychologist, with over 20 years of experience working both in the NHS and the Private sector. I am registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) as Practitioner Psychologist (Reg PYL22963). HCPC regulates the profession of psychology and other health professionals, and ensures psychologists are properly qualified, meet the standards for the profession and are fit to practice.
I am also registered with the Association for Cognitive Analytic Therapy (ACAT) as a CAT practitioner and CAT supervisor.
I offer psychological assessments and therapy for adolescents and adults.
I am trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Analytical Therapy (CAT), Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR), and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT).These are psychological therapies that use different approaches to help people deal with their difficulties, understand their emotions and behaviour – and regain control of their lives. The initial assessment will determine the most appropriate form of therapy.
As a Clinical Psychologist I can help with the diagnosis and treatment of mental illnesses but also help people who are mentally healthy to find ways of functioning in a more efficient way, e.g. cope better with relationships and stress.
I am trained in assessment for Autism and Personality assessments (ADOS, ADI-R, IPDE, PCL-R).
