My training and experience.
I hold a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology which required over six years of intensive academic and clinical training across a wide range of NHS services. This is in addition to several years of clinical experience gained before and after my formal training. My training met the stringent standards required by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) ensuring that my practice is safe, effective and accountable.
I currently work in private practice and in the NHS. I'm a senior clinical psychologist within specialist services at King's College Hospital and The Maudsley Hospital in South London. My NHS role is to provide assessment and intervention for people with complex health conditions and provide consultancy, training and supervision to other medical professionals. I also provide teaching, tutoring and examination for the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN) at King's College London and the Salomon's Institute for Applied Psychology at Canterbury Christ Church University. I have previously worked as a specialist clinical psychologist within a leading NHS sexual health service providing therapy for sexual difficulties and relationship problems in men and women.
In addition to my NHS roles I have designed and led a psychotherapy service for young people and provide psychological consultancy to businesses and charities. Prior to becoming a psychologist I worked in marketing and communications consultancy.
