I am a clinical psychologist, cognitive analytic therapist and accredited CAT supervisor. Before qualifying as a clinical psychologist in 1999 I worked as both a general and psychiatric nurse. Since qualifying as a clinical psychologist I have worked in a community mental health team and a high secure hospital. I managed a Primary Care Psychological Service in a local prison and subsequently worked in a Personality Disorder Service based within a Category B Training prison. I provided CAT for men who had contact with the criminal justice system and supervised a group of CAT trainees. I also provide some teaching on CAT for the Personality Disorder Masters course and have presented CAT as a model for working with men who offend at national conferences. I also applied CAT systemically in my role in management and leadership. Having benefitted from CAT myself as a client and professional I am very committed to providing it to others.
