I am a professionally qualified mental health nurse and psychological therapist with over 25 years experience of working within the NHS and twelve years of private practice.
I am accredited with the BABCP as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and clinical supervisor, following gaining an MSc in 2002. I am also a Europe accredited EMDR Consultant. I work with adults experiencing a wide range of difficulties including generalised anxiety, panic, stress, depression, OCD, phobias, social anxiety, health anxiety, and PTSD. My special interest is in psychological trauma and I have gained a wealth of experience working with traumatic stress, from road traffic accidents or assault to working with military veterans having experienced combat trauma. I have also worked in general hospitals with the psychological effects of physical illness.
I currently work for the NHS as a Clinical Lead Specialist for the AWP Traumatic Stress Service. I have previously provided psychological therapy in the NHS Veterans Mental Health Service, South Wales Fire & Rescue Service, Liaison Psychiatry at the Bristol Royal infirmary and IAPT services in South Gloucestershire.
I have been providing CBT and EMDR clinical supervision for mental health professionals in the NHS and private practice for several years. In addition to clinical work, I have also been a visiting lecturer at the University of West for England, Cardiff University and Mid Glamorgan University.
I am a recognised CBT and EMDR practitioner for Bupa and Aviva.
