I am a Chartered Psychologist (BPS) and Registered Forensic Psychologist (HCPC) based in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire.

As Director of the practice my aim is to create and develop client led support and interventions that offer added value to their lives.    

Offering psychological support in a variety of specialisms with an aim of enhancing the personal well-being of my clients.  As an ex Head Teacher and teacher of Psychology, English and Special Educational Needs I am also able to offer assistance in the realms of academia, including educational assessments as well as tutoring in Psychology and English.

I am married to Dom and together we have a young son and daughter so I fully understand the pressures of family life.  I currently  work in a hospital in London on a part time basis, which  specialises in assisting service users who are on the Autistic Spectrum and may also have an additional diagnosis of psychosis, obsessive compulsive disorder, learning difficulties, anxiety disorder, depression or a personality  disorder.

The majority of my clients also have a forensic history or require  further support due to substance misuse (alcoholism and / or drugs) and relapse prevention.   I work both on a one to one basis and offer family sessions as part of a  therapeutic intervention.

Prior to my present role I was employed by the Prison Service to facilitate  the healthy relationships programme to minimise the possibility of future  domestic violence and improve the understanding of intimate and family  relationships as well as friendships and interactions within the wider  community. A key part of my counselling role is to assist clients with developing and maintaining enhanced family relations and to promote positive partnerships.

 

I have gained a wealth of  experience with all age groups including children, adolescents and adults and  receive referrals from Doctors. More commonly, however, clients contact me directly when they require additional support.
