I graduated from the University of Lancaster in 1987, qualifying as a Clinical Psychologist from the University of Leeds in 1992. Since then, I have held senior positions in the NHS and worked privately. My expertise lies in addressing emotional and mental health needs of people over the age of 14 years. My work with clients is driven by evidence-based psychological theories and I adopt an eclectic approach to therapy, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing).
I am an EMDR Europe Consultant in Training. EMDR is a highly effective evidence-based treatment for psychological trauma which can also be applied to a range of other psychological conditions.
I have extensive knowledge, skills, and experience to address a broad spectrum of difficulties which may affect people during their lives. Included are:
Anxiety and associated disorders, Stress, Depression, Low self-esteem, Bereavement, Grief and loss, Obsessive-Compulsive disorder, Chronic Pain management, Addiction/Dependency issues, Relationship difficulties, bipolar disorder, psychosis.
