Chartered Clinical Psychologist

BSc Psychology, University of Huddersfield,
MSc Health Sciences, University of York
Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, University of Manchester
MSc Applied Positive Psychology, University of East London

I have been working as a Clinical Psychologist in independent practice for just over 12 years, for most of that time working with looked after children and their carers, in residential childcare settings, and I work also in fostering and adoption, and provide psychological services to schools and organisations.

I have a keen interest in attachment theory and understanding the impact of early adverse childhood experiences and trauma on child and adolescent development. I enjoy using positive psychology alongside my clinical psychology training, to help children, young people and their key adults to identify strengths, build resilience and develop an optimistic outlook which can help them face life’s challenges with confidence and courage. I also have a special interest in supporting parents, carers and teams in relation to compassion fatigue, burnout and secondary trauma.

I enjoy finding creative and accessible ways to share knowledge from the world of psychology, whether this is through engaging in direct work with children, young people and their parents/carers, providing consultation to staff teams and other professionals, or delivering training on a range of relevant subjects.

When appropriate, I also work with my Therapy dog, Jack the cockapoo, who has a great ability to bring a smile to people’s faces, as well as give and receive affection, engage in playful games, learn tricks and help children and young people build important skills of self-awareness and awareness of others.
