Professional profile

I am a consultant clinical psychologist, with both a consultant NHS post and a private practice. I have chartered clinical psychologist status and also chartered health psychologist status.

I am an associate fellow of the British Psychological Society and am registered with the Health Professions Council.

I undertook my clinical training in Leeds and have worked for many years within the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust.

The service provided includes a range of psychological assessments and interventions, undertaken mainly within a cognitive behavioural framework (CBT), for both children and adults.

Patients come and see me for a variety of difficulties. These include stress, anxiety, phobias, OCD, depression, eating disorders and appearance related issues, as well as issues related to their physical health and those arising from congenital anomalies, disease and traumatic injury.
