My Clinical Practice

I have 9 years of experience working psychologically with clients in the NHS and third sector. I have worked with people across the lifespan with a wide range of difficulties in settings including outpatient, inpatient and rehabilitation services. I currently work as a highly specialist Clinical Psychologist in the NHS, and see adults with severe and complex mental health difficulties such as Complex Trauma, Psychosis, Personality Disorder and Bipolar Affective Disorder. I have extensive experience working with adults with difficulties such as stress, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relational issues, adjustment difficulties and OCD.

I have experience of service development in the NHS and participate in enhancing the delivery of effective services. I deliver teaching and training to multidisciplinary staff and trainees on the South of Scotland CBT Postgraduate Diploma course, and provide supervision to Doctoral Trainees, Assistant Psychologists and Psychological Therapy trainees. I also have experience of providing line management and clinical supervision to colleagues.

My Therapeutic Approach

My work is centred around the therapeutic relationship and evidence-based psychological therapies. My experience highlights that forming a safe, open, non-judgemental and trusting therapeutic relationship is a crucial element of effective psychological therapy. I work in a collaborative, person-centred and strengths-based way with clients to develop a shared understanding of their current difficulties, what may have contributed to these difficulties and what keeps them going.

I see the value of both short and long-term work towards shared therapeutic aims and strive to work towards these, while ensuring clients have time and space to feel heard, reflect and make changes at their own pace.

My clinical practice is informed by a range of evidence-based therapeutic models such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).
