I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist and I specialise in working with children, young people and their families.
I graduated from the University of Kent at Canterbury with a BSc (Hons) in Psychology. I subsequently went on to the University of Surrey and completed my Clinical Psychology doctorate in 2004. The focus of my thesis was looking at the attachment relationships of children with a diagnosis of ADHD.
In 2009 I co-authored Helping Kids and Teens with ADHD in School. A Workbook for Classroom Support and Managing Transitions, to purchase a copy visit https://amzn.to/3hDhUIk

I lead the Emotional Health Service (CAMHS Team) in Kingston and Richmond in South West London based within Achieving for Children. Alongside this work I operate an small independent practice providing consultation and training to professionals, particularly school staff, and expert media consultation. I occasionally am able to offer assessment work to children, young people and their families.
