Working Location 5
I have worked as a Psychologist in the NHS and in Academic settings since 1999 and undertaken independent practice since 2008.
I provide independent child and family therapeutic services in Cornwall, based in Truro. I have particular therapeutic expertise in parenting, anxiety difficulties, behavioural issues and family relationship issues. I work individually with children or parents as well as undertaking work with whole families and wider systems if this is indicated.
I provide Consultation Services and Training for other organisations, supporting workers from other disciplines to incorporate psychological theory into their professional practice.
I provide Expert Witness services in Family Law and Personal Injury Assessments.
I have worked for the University of Exeter, training workers in evidence based therapeutic approaches for children and young people, and I maintain strong links with the department, where I continue to teach.
I have previously worked clinically in Salford (Parenting Expert for the City of Salford) and Cornwall and in an academic role for the University of Manchester.
I have an interest in therapeutic and clinical research, specialising in the field of child and family anxiety. I supervise research, speak at national and regional conferences, publish in international peer review journals and am co-author of a book on family anxiety.
