Clinical Experience

Qualifying in 1992 I have worked across a range of different specialities and services. I have specialist training and experience working in pain management, sexual health and physical health conditions and neuropsychology. Whilst I have wide-ranging expertise helping individuals manage the psychological and emotional challenges that accompany chronic and physical health conditions, I am also able to help those with purely psychological difficulties. I will help you explore, understand and improve your psychological well-being.


Clinical Psychology explained

Clinical Psychologists have extensive training and are able to assess and treat a range of difficulties drawing on many multiple models and approaches. This allows us to develop an individualised formulation for treatment. Clinical Psychologists have a first degree in Psychology and then after undertaking relevant work experience, complete doctoral level training. Clinical Psychologists work in partnership with you to reduce distress and enhance and promote psychological well-being.
