|Bio:||I have a wide range of experience, and interest in different areas of Psychology. With a particular interest, and expertise in the Mindfulness based therapies, and other modern extensions of Cognitive-behavioural therapy. I believe in maintaining the scientist -practitioner approach which is distinct to Clinical Psychology. That is, the use of effective approaches which are firmly based on scientific evidence. I have trained in a number of therapies, and I draw on the most effective aspects of these in my work.
In addition to my work with individual clients I have written protocols for sports teams to help improve performance, worked with organisations, led group programmes, and regularly train other therapists in mindfulness based techniques, and in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
