My role within the clinical programme is to provide a practical focus for the many skills that clinicians need in the areas of interviewing, assessment and therapy. I also organise student placements and liaise with supervisors throughout.
I bring to the role about 20 years of experience as a clinical psychologist, which includes 10 years of providing training to practitioners. I have worked in a variety of settings including a psychiatric hospital, pain clinic, sexual abuse counselling centre, the Child, Youth and Family service and a child and adolescent mental health service.
I currently work in private practice. I am particularly interested in parent child relationships, attachment issues and developmental problems; including autistic spectrum disorders.
