My professional experience:
I have worked in a wide variety of clinical settings in many different countries. Ranging from Belgium, Germany to the Americas and the UK. Since having joined the NHS as a registered Clinical Psychologist I furthered my expertise through working with clients presenting with moderate to severe mental health difficulties. Working as a core member of multidisciplinary teams and surrounded by exemplar colleagues, I gained invaluable experience in the clinical field. I currently divide my work between the private sector and the NHS. My work revolves around helping clients overcome what can often be described as entrenched difficulties. I have a special interest in trauma focused work and have extensive experience in working with depression, anxiety, panic, phobias and OCD. I have also built strong working knowledge of working with eating disorders.
My personal statement:
I will approach you with empathy, understanding and genuine interest. Having immersed myself in the various disciplines of clinical psychology, I am able to tailor the most appropriate evidence based approach to suit your individual needs. Together we will agree on a care plan that might include CBT, narrative therapy, systemic therapy, MBT and EMDR. Making sense of how your difficulties came to be we will develop the necessary strategies for you to move forward. The aim is for you to end therapy with the necessary knowledge and skills of how to live a more balanced and self-fulfilling life, which should last a lifetime.
