Overview

I qualified as a Clinical Psychologist in 1999 and have had many years experience within mental health settings and clinical health settings. I was employed as a Consultant Clinical Psychologist in order to set up a psychology service within Cardiff Crisis Response and Home Treatment Team and have been a Lead Psychologist within the acute mental health service in Cwm Taf. More recently, in terms of clinical health work, I have been fortunate to work in Adult and Paediatric cystic fibrosis settings, oncology settings, an appearance distress specialist service and within an intestinal failure team. My special interests lie in helping patients develop their psychological resilience within chronic health conditions, using solution focussed and compassion focussed approaches, team formulation and mindfulness.
