    BSc, MSc, C.Psychol, AFBPsS

    I am a Consultant Clinical Psychologist, chartered by the British Psychological Society and registered with the Health Professions Council.

    I worked in the National Health Service for over 30 years, for the last 20 years of which I combined clinical work as a Consultant Clinical Psychologist with a senior management role in an NHS Trust. During my NHS career, I worked in most areas of mental health services and with the full range of psychological problems. I also provided teaching at universities; training and supervision to psychologists and other staff; and a clinical psychology service to a university health centre. Having left the NHS, I am now working in private practice.

    My main approach is cognitive-behavioural but I also draw on a wider range of approaches and experience.

    I am a Consultant Counselling Psychologist, HCPC Registered Counselling Psychologist and BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist.

    Since training as a counselling psychologist and achieving chartered status with the BPS in the mid-1990s, I have worked in a variety of roles, including delivering Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and managing and providing clinical leadership to NHS services in Surrey and West Sussex. Whilst I mainly use CBT in my clinical work, I draw on other models of psychological therapy as required.

    I am an experienced supervisor and trainer of both qualified clinicians and those who are undertaking placements as part of their training in CBT and other models of psychological treatment.

    I am a BABCP accredited CBT therapist, experienced in working with a wide range of difficulties, using both CBT and other models of psychological therapy.

Chartered Psychologist status is the benchmark of professional recognition for psychologists and reflects the highest standards of psychological knowledge and expertise.

Qualifying for chartered membership status is a significant achievement, requiring high levels of academic attainment, periods of supervised practice and applied experience, a commitment to lifelong learning, and an engagement with the broader issues facing the profession.
