During my career I have worked in a variety of clinical settings, such as NHS Mental Health, Community Drug and Alcohol Teams, Private Sector, Prison Service, Probation, Courts and Youth Justice. I have experience of working with a variety of client groups and age ranges, from young people to older adults and also of providing both individual and group work sessions.
I have the following professional qualifications:
Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Psychology
Master of Science in Forensic Psychology
Postgraduate Diploma in CBT
I have 16 years experience working in the fields of both mental health and addictions, providing structured evidence-based psychological treatment. My most recent job role prior to private practice was working for 6 years as a CBT therapist within NHS Primary Care Mental Health, providing both 1:1 and group sessions of therapy within GP surgeries and other community venues. I currently undertake private practice for The Priory and have a specialist interest in working with drug and alcohol addictions.
