Get to Know Me
A licensed professional, here to guide you
I have provided psychological services for the NHS in various roles since 2004. During this time I have worked in GP surgeries, hospital and community settings, adult mental health teams and forensic hospitals, working therapeutically with people of all ages with a wide range of difficulties. I completed my Doctorate training in 2012 and since then have specialised in adult mental health. I currently work part-time in the NHS as well as in my own private practice in Birmingham and online.
I have also held research positions for the University of Birmingham and as a clinical researcher and trainer in the private sector. I have supervised trainee Clinical, Forensic and Counselling Psychologists and delivered training on the Aston University Undergraduate psychology course. Most recently I have been interviewed on GB News and ITV News and regularly provide expert psychological commentary for the media.
My approach to therapy is integrative; I draw on the different therapy models I have trained in as I do not believe that “one size fits all”. My aim is to tailor my therapeutic approach to suit your needs. As well as my doctorate training, where I completed specialist placements in Psychodynamic therapy and Acceptance and Commitment therapy, since qualifying I have also completed training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy and Compassionate Mind. I have a particular interest in attachment styles and relationships.
I understand that approaching a Clinical Psychologist for support can be a daunting experience. When we are trying to make a change in our lives, often asking for help is the hardest and most important step you can take. If you are uncertain whether therapy is the right route for you, or would like more information about how I may be able to help you, then please get in touch.
