ABOUT ME

I am a Registered Clinical Psychologist with over twenty two years clinical experience within the NHS and in private practice.

 

I have considerable experience in providing therapeutic interventions to children, young people and adults with a broad range of difficulties; including anxiety, mood problems, depression, low self-esteem, parenting issues, attachment issues, bereavement, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and deliberate self-harm.

 

One of my specialist roles has been working with children and young people with neurodevelopmental disorders in a diagnostic assessment team across Gloucestershire, for over ten years. I have extensive knowledge in working with children and young people with learning disabilities and their parents and have significant experience working in specialist residential schools.

 

In an assessment role, I have vast experience in providing Expert Opinion to the Family Court, both independently and previously as part of an NHS role.
