I worked in the NHS for five years before going into private practice and continue to work for the NHS Monday to Friday alongside seeing private clients in the evenings. I have clinical experience of working with clients with a range of mental health problems across the lifespan. In particular I have worked in child and adolescent mental health services, adult mental health services, older adult mental health services, Learning Disabilities services, and with those with Autism Spectrum and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders. I also worked as a Specialist Clinical Psychologist in Eating Disorder services.
