When I'm not working I'm a busy mother to three energetic young children and I wouldn't have it any other way. We love chilling out at home watching movies, baking and going to the park together. In the little time I have to myself I love reading anything around 'indigenous' cultures.

I am a senior Clinical Psychologist currently working part time in a local Community All Age Eating Disorders NHS service and also in private practice. I have worked in the field of mental health for over 15 years across many specialisms and job roles, working with children, adolescents and adults with severe or enduring mental health problems. These experiences have taught me that the therapeutic relationship between a client, couple or family and their therapist is of paramount importance and it is this relationship that I explore and focus on, at the onset of therapy, as I recognise that in order to explore emotional pain and suffering we need to feel ‘safe enough’ to do so. In my clinical practice I utilise various therapeutic modalities as I recognise the complexity of human nature and how various factors can contribute to a person’s difficulties. My main therapeutic models I use in clinical practice include: • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) • Family Based Therapy (FT) • Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) • Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) • Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) • Mindfulness Whatever the modality of therapy I use, the therapeutic relationship is always collaborative with me, so clients can feel heard and have a choice in the decision making process of their care. For me the core aim of psychological therapy is for the person/s to develop a better understanding of their needs and difficulties’ and how they may have emerged and then find more adaptive ways of coping or living with their difficult experiences. The best thing about my job is being able to utilise my knowledge, skills and own experiences of adversity to help a person or family experiencing difficulties, reach their desired goal or potential. I really enjoy seeing people change positively within our therapeutic work, regain their ‘identity’ and start to lead a life that is more meaningful and fulfilling for them. I enjoy working for the both the NHS and in private practice as it allows people to have a greater choice in their healthcare needs. As one of my specialist areas is ‘Eating Disorders’ it is vitally important that I work closely (if necessary) with the persons local NHS service too, as often a multi-disciplinary team approach is required to meet the persons healthcare needs. I am fully insured, and a member of my professional body the British Psychological Society (BPS) and regulated by the Health and Professionals Council (HCPC). I receive regular supervision for my clinical practice.
