Employment History

I have worked in the NHS providing psychotherapy and counselling to individuals, groups and families since 2007.

Way back in the mists of time (the early 80s) I moved to Glasgow to complete a degree in Psychology and spent several years living in a group home alongside people with learning difficulties. I worked for a couple of years in one of Glasgow’s large housing schemes recruiting, training and supervising volunteers. I then trained as a social worker and moved south to work for the Probation Service. I worked as a Probation Officer for four years, working with adults and young offenders, individually and in groups. After a career break to travel in south east Asia I returned to live in the south west. I then worked for over 12 years with young people in care, supporting their transition into adulthood and independence. I went on to train as a Clinical Psychologist and Therapist working with people across the lifespan in the community and inpatient settings. I have worked in an IAPT service, an acute inpatient unit, pain management and now work in my NHS role in clinical health psychology specialising in Post Intensive Care Syndrome.

Other important bits

As part of my professional registration I am required to work to several codes of conduct and ethical guidelines. I am committed to continuing professional development and regular supervision. I hold comprehensive professional indemnity insurance and am DBS checked. My private work takes place at the Therapy Collective in Mutley, which provides the perfect space for therapy and counselling
