A Bit About Me

In 2004, I embarked on the path to become a qualified clinical psychologist. After obtaining a first class honours bachelor degree in psychology at the University of Liverpool,  I went on to complete a doctorate in clinical psychology at the University of  Manchester. I have been employed by the NHS since 2011 and continue to work for the NHS in adult mental health services.

Post doctoral training:

have attended numerous post-doctoral trainings such as schema therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR), Mentalisation-based treatment training. I prefer to work in a person centred manner, adapting therapy to my client's individual needs. 

I am fully registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) the national regulator of health and care professions in the UK. Registration number PYL31555.
