Clinical Practice

I have worked clinically within the NHS since 2012 in a variety of contexts; with people across the lifespan.  I have experience working as a Clinical Psychologist in the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) within the NHS.  In this role, I provided assessment and treatment to children, young people and their families who are presenting with a range of challenging mental health difficulties and/or neurodevelopmental disorders, such as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) and Intellectual Disabilities (ID).  

Alongside working in private practice, at present I work in a service that provides psychological therapy to NHS and social care staff. In this role, I work with people experiencing a wide range of presenting difficulties including stress, burn out, trauma, relationship difficulties, depression and a range of anxiety disorders including obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), phobias, health anxiety, generalised anxiety and panic.   


My Therapeutic Approach

I aim to create a safe space for clients to explore their difficulties within a therapeutic relationship based upon genuine curiosity, compassion, warmth and empathy.  I work collaboratively with clients to develop a shared understanding of their difficulties based upon psychological theory; in order to create a suitable treatment plan, tailored to each individual’s presenting difficulties and personal goals.  I work with clients to empower them to develop their own tools and strategies to alleviate distress and improve psychological wellbeing. 

The primary therapeutic model that I use is Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) but I also draw from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Mindfulness and systemic approaches.  I am also in the process of training to be an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) practitioner.  I tend to use an integrative approach, drawing from a range of models, in order to meet the individual needs of each client.
