I qualified as a Clinical Psychologist in 2001. I've delivered training to different professional audiences on a wide variety of topics since qualification. I worked in the NHS for twelve years in adult mental health and sexual health/HIV services and continue to provide sexual health services to sexual minorities in private practice. I have worked with a wide range of psychological and sexual health problems, and worked to a senior level in the profession, managing services and training and supervising others. I was the lead Clinical Psychologist for a Specialist Psychological Therapies Service for severe and complex problems before leaving the NHS to set up in private practice. I am an accredited Cognitive Analytic Therapist and Supervisor, and I was the Vice Chair for the Association for Cognitive Analytic Therapy (ACAT) from 2013 to 2020.
