Current Work

Clinical Lead at EASE Wellbeing: overseeing the implementation of a short-term intervention in primary care at two GP surgeries and conducting all psychological assessments, client allocations, risk assessments and seeing clients on an ongoing basis. I supervise trainees clinical work, liaise with GPs regarding onward referrals and I am involved in the continuing development of the intervention and recruitment and training of new clinicians. I am involved in discussions with commissioning groups and the marketing of the company to secure new projects and pilot studies.

Private practice in London and Oxfordshire: I see individual clients at both these locations over three days. I have regular supervision with two supervisors and continuously embark on training days and conferences. As I am aware that there is always room for new awareness, the illumination of blindspots and many potential differing perspectives, supervision and CPD ensures my practice is ethical, and continuously being questioned and developed.
