I am a Clinical Psychologist and CAT Practitioner. I have over ten years’ experience of working in a variety of healthcare settings and services, including forensic settings and secondary mental health services. I was initially drawn to CAT as a model of therapy during my Clinical Psychology training due to its collaborative nature and focus on patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving that can cause us to feel stuck.
I currently work in NHS physical health services and find that CAT is useful to help understand the relationship between our mental and physical health, as well as to help with adjustment when coping strategies are destabilised as a result of ill health or following a traumatic life event. In my private practice, I have an interest in working with people who experience a range of difficulties, including trauma and abuse, depression, anxiety, relationship problems and eating disorders.
