My Clinical Practice

I have worked as a Clinical Psychologist and Clinical Neuropsychologist in Australia for several years across private practice, community, and hospital settings. Since moving to Edinburgh, I have gained experience working for an NHS stroke rehabilitation service. I am particularly interested in brain injury rehabilitation and providing neuropsychological assessment and therapeutic interventions tailored to a person’s cognitive strengths and goals. I have experience providing therapy to people living with a neurological condition or dementia diagnosis, and in supporting people who are adjusting to illness, injury, or life transitions. My psychological practice is informed by my research into the use of mindfulness-based strategies to support the mental health and quality of life of people living with multiple sclerosis.

I enjoy working with young people to assist them in developing strategies to manage mood disorders and anxiety, navigate life after school, and improve and maintain their mental health and wellbeing more generally. I am also interested in exploring what role psychologists can play in both working towards a solution to the climate crisis and in the building of resilience and hope in people who may be struggling with overwhelm and anxiety related to this.

My Therapeutic Approach

In my work with clients, I take a non-judgemental and respectful approach to therapy that is grounded in empathy and warmth and informed by neuropsychological knowledge. I work flexibly and often combine evidence-based therapeutic modalities to best suit a client’s needs. I primarily work from a cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) approach and use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and mindfulness techniques alongside neurorehabilitation strategies. I aim to create a calm, safe and encouraging therapeutic space that is neuroaffirming.
