Following an initial complimentary telephone consultation to discuss your concerns we would make a  plan to best address your needs.  Therapy sessions are online and tend to be weekly or fortnightly for around 50 minutes.  The number of sessions will be based on your needs and can change over time depending on your goals for therapy. We will work together in an open and collaborative manner to ensure the approach is the best one for you.  Therapy may involve reading additional recommended materials or completing tasks between sessions. My therapeutic approach is integrative, utilising methods from a variety of psychological models/theories to suit the needs of each individual client. 


I have completed the NES training in Generic Supervision Competencies for Psychological Therapies and Interventions and the NES Specialist Supervision Training in CBT. I have experience in supervising qualified professionals and students from different backgrounds such as counselling, nursing, CBT therapists and allied health professionals. I provide supervision for students on psychological therapy courses such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy masters or diploma. I facilitate group supervision for teams who are undertaking psychologically informed work with their client group.  


I am able to design and deliver bespoke training and teaching for staff groups across a variety of settings.  I have delivered training on trauma-informed practice, staff wellbeing, psychological formulation, psychologically informed care and managing challenging interpersonal dynamics, situations, systems or cases.

I have lectured at the University of Edinburgh on the Clinical Psychology Doctorate and the University of the West of Scotland on the Forensic Mental Health Masters. 

I have presented both talks and workshops at conferences for NOTA  - National Organisation for the Treatment of Abuse and CYCJ - Children and Young People's Centre for Justice.


Provision of  psychological assessment and opinion to the criminal justice system regarding mental health, psychological functioning and risk. I am trained in the use of risk assessment tools for violence/sexual violence in adults and youths; such as HCR-20 V3, RSVP, SARA, SAPROF, AIM3 and SAVRY.  I undertake assessment of personality using the Psychopathy Checklist - Revised (PCL-R) and the International Personality Disorder Examination (IPDE). 


The aim of a psychologically informed case formulation meeting is to help staff form an understanding of why a client presents in the way that they do and what underlying function their behaviours may be serving. A formulation pulls together the biological, psychological and social factors that contribute to the client’s presentation. The facilitator is there to help reflect and summarise information, ask questions to provoke thought and encourage consideration of alternative viewpoints. Most of the learning from the formulation is done during the meeting, through the process of thinking about the client in light of their experiences. The aim is for staff to use their enhanced understanding to guide their interactions and future care planning with the client.  Promoting a psychological informed understanding helps staff groups to retain compassion and reduces feelings of 'stuckness' with clients.
