My Approach

I am a qualified Clinical Psychologist registered with the HCPC. I provide psychological assessment and therapy using a variety of different approaches, customised to suit the individual client. I have worked in the NHS and related areas for over 10 years across a full range of different psychological services.

 

I believe in a positive approach to psychology which emphasises people’s strengths and helps them to develop the tools they need to manage whatever issues they are facing.  I believe that difficult psychological problems and intense psychological distress can happen to anyone who finds themselves in a difficult situation. My job is to provide the extra support that people need to help them to cope with whatever challenges life has thrown at them, and to help them to have the life they want in spite of those challenges.

Appointments

I offer appointments via telephone, video call or face to face depending on what is most helpful. I offer a free, 15 minute telephone consultation upon request. My fee's can be discussed during the call.

The main therapeutic approaches I use are:

My Background

I grew up in New Ferry on the Wirral. My original degree was in Philosophy and Politics and I moved on to psychology later in life. Clinical Psychology was a good fit for me because I always wanted to understand myself and other people better. I got my first Psychology qualification from Liverpool Hope University before doing my doctorate at Lancaster University.I enjoy working in a wide range of areas related to Clinical Psychology including research, training, lecturing, consultation and supervision. 

 

 

What is a Clinical Psychologist?

A Clinical Psychologist is someone who has completed a process of training which begins with an undergraduate psychology degree, includes a period of work experience and ends with the doctoral qualification known as the DClinPsy. 

The entire process takes on average around 8 years and culminates in the completion of a set of clinical placements and the production of a doctoral thesis: original academic research in the area of psychology. The idea behind this training programme is that Clinical Psychologists should have clinical/therapeutic skills as well as the academic skills they need to stay up to date on current, evidence based interventions. This is known as the ‘scientist-practitioner model’.

During their training, Clinical Psychologists learn about a range of different therapeutic approaches and work with a range of different client groups throughout the NHS and related areas.
