Independent Psychology Services

I am an Educational Psychologist working in Gloucestershire and the surrounding areas. I gained a Masters degree in Psychology from the University of Edinburgh and then completed a Post Graduate Certificate of Education at the University of Nottingham. Following this, I taught for two years in an infant school before qualifying as an Educational Psychologist at the University of Exeter in 2003.

I worked for a local authority for eight years before setting up my independent business. In addition, I have also worked for Winston's Wish, a national child bereavement charity, based in Gloucestershire.

I have experience of, and interest in, many areas of educational psychology including: childhood bereavement; trauma; attachment; social and emotional skills; self-esteem; memory skills; autism; general learning difficulties; developing resilience; and dyslexia.

I am a registered practitioner psychologist with the health and care professions council, as well as being a chartered psychologist with the British Psychological Society. In addition, I am a member of the Association of Educational Psychologists and follow the guidelines as set out by these professional organisations.
