I'm a registered Clinical Psychologist, Neuropsychologist, accredited Psychotherapist, and an approved Clinical Supervisor.

I am a registered Expert Witness for court cases for medical negligence, road traffic accidents, and workplace accidents.

I have more than 20 years of experience in counselling and psychotherapy and over 10 years in clinical psychology and neuropsychology.

I work from a range of psychological models, including EMDR, cognitive-behavioural, acceptance and compassion, mindfulness, analytical, solution focused and existential. I have extensive experience in working in mental health and neurorehabilitation/ neurodevelopmental settings, in particular in complex and busy environments.

I can work with individuals presenting with a range of difficulties, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, stress, bereavement and loss, brain injury, autism, ADHD, learning difficulties, aggression, and relationship issues.

I provide a range of assessments, including cognitive and IQ for traffic accidents, memory, executive functioning skills, ADHD, Autism, behavioural processing skills, mental capacity assessments for court, and many more.

I can also provide teaching, supervision and consultation to other professionals, counsellors and psychologists, students, and the general public.

I also supervise research and coursework. I am actively involved in staff training and CPD to ensure that care is systematic and consistent across teams. I have a range of publications in scientific journals and book chapter.
