I am a Clinical Psychologist registered with the Health and Social Care Professions Council (HCPC).
I am experienced in the assessment and treatment of a wide range of psychological and mental health difficulties including anxiety disorders, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, relationship difficulties, grief and low self esteem. My specialist interest is in the area of neuro-development including autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). I am interested in perinatal psychology and the development of attachment and the complex interaction between early childhood experiences such as neglect and trauma, parental mental health issues and environmental factors in the development of mental health difficulties.
I draw on a number of therapeutic models and interventions including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), systemic and solution focused approaches, individually tailored to meet the needs of my clients and their families.
I am a Registered General and Mental Health Nurse with a Diploma in Child and Adolescent Mental Health. I have over 15 years experience of working with Children and Young People.
My specific area of expertise is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children. ADHD is a Neurodevelopmental condition which affects both children, adolescents and adults.
My main role is to carry out an in depth assessment to determine the difficulties you and your child are experiencing and to help plan a way forward. The assessment is undertaken by myself, during which time I will discuss any questions and concerns you may have, carry out one to one assessment sessions as well as a school visit if appropriate. The assessment will then be recorded in a comprehensive report.
I have over 10 years experience as a registered nurse in mental health. I have now specialised in working with children and adolescents for 5 years and I love my job!
I am an accredited Interpersonal Psychotherapist which is an evidence based and NICE recommended treatment for depression. The model can also help with anxiety and trauma related problems. It focsses on how life events and/or relationships can both trigger and maintain mental health problems. Using other psychological interventions I can also work with young people who suffer with different mental health difficulties; for example anxiety, self harm, depression and intrusive thoughts.
I am a Clinical and Doctoral Researcher and Clinical Supervisor, specialising with child and adult trauma. I can and do work with toddlers, children, adolescents and adults for short and long term work. I work creatively and/or with technology or we can just talk.
My specialist area is working with any issue that relates to a trauma or abuse and how this affects a person’s body and mind after the event. Whether that be immediate or later in life. I use technology to help where needed as this can give quick answers. I am versed in functional psychotherapy using my training in nutrigenomics (food as information).
I use technology for trauma such as heart rate variability software and have a package designed for my practice, which I use with children/adults who have issues around trauma/anxiety/sleep. I use a version of Neurofeedback (brain wave) technology too. I use a body & play work room too (with adults & children) and computer games.
