Having worked as a Clinical Psychologist in the National Health Service for over 25 years I have gained considerable experience working with the full range of mental health problems. I have worked at primary health care level in local G.P. health centres etc. for many years as well as with patients in acute psychiatric hospitals. In addition I have worked in Child and Family Therapy services. I have also worked in NHS Specialist Stroke Services. I continue to have a contract with Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, Queens Medical Centre and City Hospital and I do occasional specialised work for them.
In the Independent Sector I have provided a service to specialist Brain Injury Units, providing treatment services and developing and running rehabilitation programmes.
I have also trained as a Psychotherapist and have been awarded the Diploma in Psychotherapy by Sheffield University Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health. Over the years I have developed a particular interest in short term Psychological Therapies, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), EMDR, Eclectic Psychotherapy and Counselling. I have been running a successful private practice providing a Clinical Psychology Consultancy with regular clinics across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire since 2001.
