I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist (CPsychol) providing an integrative approach to therapy with a particular focus in Schema Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT), and Mindfulness. I have trained in and provided training workshops in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy in Australia and Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy in the UK.
My areas of speciality are in trauma, anxiety disorders, affective disorders (such as depression and bipolar disorder), and personality disorders. I also enjoy working with young people aged 16+.
I qualified with a Masters Degree in Australia in 1998, and have worked in both Australia and the United Kingdom as a clinical psychologist, both for government health systems and in private practice. I now work only in private practice. I am an accredited Schema Therapist and EMDR Practitioner.
I am fully registered as a practitioner psychologist with the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency, and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) in the UK. I am chartered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and am a member of The Australian Psychological Society (APS).
