I am a Clinical Psychologist and Psychotherapist, a Fellow of the British Psychological Society and Emeritus Professor at the University of Sheffield. I worked in the NHS for 38 years, training in cognitive behaviour therapy and psychodynamic therapy before specialising in CAT. I work with people with a wide range of mental health problems, including depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress, eating disorders, gender and sexual identity problems, recurrent relationship difficulties. I also work with psychological aspects of physical health problems such as heart disease, cancer, respiratory problems, diabetes, chronic pain and fatigue. I specialise in work-related stress and personality difficulties. As well as psychological therapy, I offer coaching, mentoring and therapy supervision. I am an accredited trainer and supervisor in Cognitive Analytic Therapy. Much of my research has been on improving psychotherapy outcomes and preventing harm from therapy. I have a long-standing commitment to using research to improve practice (and vice versa) and have led or contributed to many national policy initiatives in clinical psychology and psychological therapies.
