I have over 20 years experience in applying clinical psychology skills in the NHS. For the past 14 years I have worked full time in Adult Mental Health Secondary Care Services in Wakefield, West Yorkshire.
Since qualifying, I have undertaken regular post-qualification training in a wide range of therapeutic and organisational approaches. I have a specialist interest in working with people with psychosis and people with neuropsychological problems.
My practice is integrative, utilising various therapeutic modalities including psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectical behavioural therapy, mindfulness, systemic psychotherapy, developmental psychology, person-centred psychotherapy, couples therapy and Clinical Neuropsychology. The exact nature of individual interventions is determined collaboratively with patients according to their individual needs and preferences.
I provide comprehensive assessments, formulations and interventions with people presenting with a wide range of mental health problems such as anxiety-based disorders, depression, childhood abuse and neglect, psychosis, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders, bereavement, physical illness, alcohol and substance misuse problems and relationship problems. I also provide specialist neuropsychological assessments.
