Professional profile

I have been providing psychotherapy at Spire Liverpool Hospital since 2006. My practice is also based at Hampden House Psychotherapy Centre in Manchester.

I qualified as a psychotherapist in 1994, training at the University of Liverpool. I previously worked from 1975 as a psychiatric social worker in forensic psychiatry (at Ashworth Hospital), adult psychiatry (at Royal Liverpool Hospital) and as a mental health practitioner in child and family psychiatry (at Alder Hey Hospital). I thus have a very broad background in mental health practice. I also worked from 1994-2000 as a sessional counsellor at the University of Liverpool. I retired from the NHS in October 2009.

Clinical Interests

Special Clinical Interests: Depression, anxiety, bereavement and loss, issues relating to childhood trauma or abuse, relationship difficulties.
