Academic Tutor and Clinical Psychologist

  • Principal Clinical Psychologist

What I do

I am an Academic Tutor for trainees in year 1. I am also a module convener and teach on a range of topics at OXICPT including issues relating to professional practice and evidence based psychological interventions for people with dementia.

Professional Interests

I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist and have experience of clinically supervising doctoral trainees. I work clinically at Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Partnership Trust in a neuro-rehabilitation service. I am also a member of the BPS and am registered with the HCPC.

I began working in the NHS in 2006 and have worked within a range of mental health services and settings including CMHTs, specialist and neuro-rehabilitation services. I have also obtained experience of working for a private healthcare company and supporting patients in a locked rehabilitation setting.

My specialist interests include working with older adults with cognitive and/or neurological impairment, developing resilience and supporting families and carers.

I am interested in working from a Compassion Focused Therapy perspective, delivering staff training and considering interventions to increase resilience.

I am involved with the BAME steering group at Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Partnership Trust and have delivered talks and training on cultural considerations in therapy.
