Since completing my Doctorate in 2011, I have worked in the NHS, private sector (traumatic brain injury, looked after children) and also in New Zealand within the Department of Corrections and a Maori Mental Health organisation.

Throughout my Doctorate and in my career, I have been trained in a number of different therapeutic approaches. These include CBT, person centred, ACT, CFT and mindfullness-based interventions. I have worked with adults, young people, children and families with a range of emotional and behavioural difficulties.
