Personal profile

I have worked in the NHS for 17 years in London and the Midlamds prior to setting up my private practice. My special interests are psychological disorders in adolescents and adults. I mainly work with people suffering from depression and anxiety disorders. 

I am dually qualified as a Clinical and Health psychologist. I spent my first 7 years post qualification running Pain Management Programmes in Leicester and working in Medical Psychology. Since commencing my private practice 12 years ago I have extended my interests to trauma work and have qualified in EMDR therapy. 

My main therapeutic practise is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Systemic therapy. I am involved in medico-legal work concerning road traffic accidents and injuries at work. This work involves preparing reports for court.
