I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist and
Accredited CBT Therapist. I have worked for many
years as a Consultant Clinical Child and Adolescent
Psychologist within the NHS in Berkshire.
I formed the Berkshire Child Anxiety Clinic, a joint
collaboration between the University of
Reading and the local NHS trust. More recently, I
have run an NHS service for children and
adolescents with anxiety and depression.
I have been involved in the development of a
number of treatment programmes and in the
running of several treatment trials for children with
anxiety problems and I am a Visiting Fellow within the School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences at the University of Reading.
I now work in private practice in Chapel Row, a picturesque village that lies between Reading and Newbury. I also provide clinical psychology input to several local schools.
What I offer
I see children and young people with a variety of
psychological difficulties, and have particular
expertise in assessing and treating anxiety difficulties
I also offer input to children and young people with
OCD, behaviour problems, low self-esteem,
eating problems, and physical health problems. I
often work with parents directly rather than seeing
children individually using the Overcoming
My primary aim is to provide treatment that is proven
to be effective and that is accessible to children,
young people and their parents.
