Professional Title: Psychotherapist

Professional membership & accreditation:
I am registered with United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and Association of Cognitive Analytic Therapists (ACAT).

Qualifications:
MBChB Liverpool University 1985
Diploma in Clinical Psychotherapy (merit) Kings College London 2001
Post Graduate Certificate in Medical Education Hull University 2010

Experience:
I trained as a doctor initially and began training as a psychotherapist in 1996. I worked in NHS mental health services, gaining a breadth of experience until 2010. I now work in medical education and as a private psychotherapist at Leeds Counselling and in Roundhay.

I work with anxiety, depression, relationship problems, loss and trauma. My particular expertise is where there is an interaction between physical and emotional problems.

Therapeutic Approach:
I am a cognitive analytic (CAT) psychotherapist. CAT is an integrative therapy combining some structure which helps to keep a focus but also some flexibility enabling the work to be suited to each person’s unique style. There is a balance between working in the ‘here and now’, looking at the main stresses currently in a person’s life and taking a developmental perspective, trying to understand how a person has arrived at this place where they are in difficulty. CAT aims to understand and change recurring problematic patterns in our relationships with others and with ourselves.

Service offered:
Individual therapy for adults based on CAT. Therapy sessions are weekly and for 50 minutes. I generally see people for between 12 and 30 sessions.

Session times offered:
Monday evenings 5 pm, 6 pm and 7 pm at Northpoint Wellbeing. Other times maybe available at my Roundhay Practice – please see website for details.
