I have worked in the NHS for over 16 years, gaining clinical experience in a variety of settings. I began my NHS career employed within forensic psychiatry, moving through various specialities until training in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy in 2007. Towards the latter part of my NHS career I have worked in child and adolescent services (CAMHS) as well as in private practice. I now work full time in private practice.

Since training in CBT I have developed an interest in psychological trauma. I have subsequently trained in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR). I have award EMDR Consultant status in 2015 and now provide supervision and consultation to others in this approach.

Supervision / Consultation
I supervise both trainee and accredited CBT Therapist in the NHS and private practice. I also provide CBT Supervision to Therapists and Counsellors not train in CBT but providing this intervention to their clients. I have supervised trainees to qualification through the UEA and Anglia Ruskin PG dip in CBT.

I provide EMDR Supervision and consultation to all disciplines undertaking this approach.
