I have practised therapy for nearly 18 years in one form or another and qualified as a Chartered Clinical Psychologist in 2003 from University College London (UCL).
I have worked in a number of NHS and private settings including specialist units for Trauma, Eating Disorders, Community Mental Health Teams and general outpatients.
I was Clinical Director of a residential Trauma Clinic with outpatients in Harley Street, and now work as Senior Trauma Consultant at the Oxford Development Centre in Witney (see www.oxdev.co.uk).
I provide specialist supervision for other mental health staff including other Clinical Psychologists. I teach CBT skills regularly at the University of Birmingham and for the local Trust. I also write specialist and Expert Witness reports for Court.
Like all Clinical Psychologists our work is supervised externally and we are bound by the British Psychological Society’s code of practice and ethics. Included in this is a standard rule of client confidentiality.
We are registered Practitioner Psychologists with the HCPC Health & Care Professionals Council and have affiliations to most major Health insurance companies.

I have practised therapy for 16 years within the NHS and additionally offered private work over the last 5 years. I have worked within a Child and Family Health setting for a large proportion of this time although more latterly I have worked with adults, especially staff working within the healthcare system (both staff in NHS and independent healthcare organisations).
I am trained in a variety of therapies including CBT, systemic therapy and solution focussed therapy and EMDR but I am especially interested in using therapies using mindfulness as part of the approach such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
