I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist with extensive experience as an Expert Witness.

I have presented evidence in Court. I have completed specialist training for Expert Witnesses from the British Psychological Society. I have worked for 13 years with Adults with complex mental health needs, and I have had foundation-level specialist training in Neuropsychology (6 month placement). I also worked for 3 years as a Child and Adolescence Psychologist.
