About Me

selfie 4b_edited_edited_edited.jpg

I qualified as a clinical psychologist in 2001, and have worked therapeutically with children and families throughout my career, both in the NHS and the independent sector.  I am a certified practitioner in DDP (Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy) and an experienced clinical supervisor. I am registered with the HCPC (Health and Care Professionals Council) and follow their professional standards.

 

My areas of expertise include:  

  • Therapeutic parenting, developmental trauma and child attachment

  • The impact of long term health problems and loss on children and adults

  • Psychological assessment of adults and children.

 

I  use a trauma informed approach to my work with children who have been fostered or adopted, and of course with their parents and carers, including kinship carers.

 

I provide clinical supervision to other therapists and psychologists.

 

I provide training and consultation to groups of foster carers and adoptive parents.

 

I have worked extensively as an expert witness for the family courts.
