A bit about me:

After studying psychology to Masters level at the University of Cape Town, I spent five years working as a research psychologist in a variety of settings, including an AIDS education programme in South Africa and the Institute of Medical Genetics in Cardiff.

I completed a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in Cardiff in 2000. As part of my training, I did an elective at the Bristol Oncology Centre where I worked with individuals and families coping with a diagnosis of cancer. After qualifying, I worked in an older adult mental health service in Gwent for seven years. During this time, I taught on the South Wales training course for clinical psychologists and supervised trainee clinical psychologists.

I am married to a GP and have two children. I am now working as an independent practitioner with adults of all ages. I am committed to expanding my knowledge of psychological theory and research through reading, attending conferences and training events and meeting with other psychologists. I have regular supervision in which I can work on my skills and reflect on my clinical practice.
