I have several years of experience working therapeutically with adults, older adults, young people, and families struggling with a wide range of difficulties.
I completed my first degree in Psychology at Loughborough University followed by three years working as an assistant psychologist working in various mental health, looked after care and forensic settings. I went on to complete a fulfilling three year clinical psychology doctorate at University College London.
I also hold a post graduate diploma in clinical neuropsychology through the University of Bristol. I am fascinated by the workings of the brain and the links between brain, mood and behaviour. We now know more than ever about the impact of the functioning of the brain and the positive impact of therapy. I will write about this from time to time on my blog.
I hold chartered psychologist status with the British Psychological Society and I am an accredited Cognitive-Behavioural Psychotherapist with the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists. I am also registered with the Health Care Professions Council and have full criminal records bureau clearance.
