I have completed a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology which required me to engage in several years of research and comprehensive study and intensive supervision of clinical skills.

 

Professionally I have acquired a considerable amount of experience in working with people of all ages who experience a wide variety of psychological and emotional difficulties in both private and public services in the UK and New Zealand.

 

To keep my clinical skills current and to the highest standard, I regularly attend national and international conferences & courses.
