I trained as a Clinical Psychologist at Queens University in the 1980s and have worked for over 30 years in Health Trusts in Northern Ireland. During that time I have worked with adults who have a broad range of mental health and behavioural problems. I have also trained as a CBT therapist, again at QUB.
Before starting to work in private practice I was Head of Clinical Psychology Services in the Northern Health and Social Care Trust from 1997 until January 2011. One particular interest in this post was to improve people’s access to a wide variety of psychological therapies.
For many years I have taught on the Clinical Psychology training course at QUB and was recently conferred the title of Honorary Senior Lecturer.
