I work mainly within a Cognitive Behavioural framework and draw on psychodynamic concepts as well as schema therapy, and solution focused therapy when necessary. I am able to work to flexibly and adapt this range of different therapeutic interventions to meet the particular needs of my clients.
I completed my doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 2006. My training included working with adults and children with a wide range of difficulties including, anxiety disorders, depression, post traumatic stress disorder, psychosis, physical health problems, and childhood difficulties including, eating, sleeping, toileting and behavioural difficulties. I have a particular interest in Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and my doctorate research investigated different Cognitive Models of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
Since qualifying I have worked for Sussex Partnership NHS Trust in the early intervention for psychosis, rehabilitation and assertive outreach services. I have worked with clients with psychosis (e.g. voices, delusions and paranoia), depression, anger, low self-esteem, anxiety disorders (e.g. panic attacks, health anxiety, social phobia PTSD) insomnia and grief.
