Since qualifying in 1990 I have worked in a range of diverse settings in the NHS for 18 years, both in inpatient and community services. For 11 years, I held the position of Head of Adult Community Psychology Service in the NHS and I have been responsible for the delivery of highly specialist psychological assessments and effective evidence-based interventions to working age adults.

Alongside this, I have worked in the private sector for over 15 years. Throughout my career in clinical psychology, I have remained invested in my own professional development, and ensured that I continue offering psychological therapy, which is innovative, forward thinking and effective.

I am highly respected in my professional field and remain committed to ensuring excellence in my clinical work by embracing a culture of continuous quality improvement.
