Over the last 16 years I have developed a passion for working with children and adults with a variety of mental health difficulties from depression to anxiety, behavioural and emotional difficulties to psychosis. I also have a special interest in working with developmental disorders such as autism spectrum conditions and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. I am an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist (CBT) with the BABCP, Registered Practitioner Psychologist with the HCPC, and Associate Fellow and Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society.
In therapy I use a variety of methods including CBT and systemic theories. I am also a therapist and trainer in Behavioural Family Therapy and have experience of delivering Programmes and supervision of Applied behaviour Analysis and Positive behaviour Support.
