I'm accredited as a CBT Trainer through the BABCP and I have extensive experience of training professionals and staff teams from
various services in a range of clinically-relevant topics. I am a part-time Lecturer & Clinical Tutor on the Doctorate in Clinical
Psychology programme at Royal Holloway University of London, and also hold honorary contracts at the University of Southampton,
and the University of East London, providing input into undergraduate, postgraduate/Masters and Doctoral-level academic programmes.
I typically offer training workshops, seminars and lectures relevant to psychological skills, CBT-informed interventions, professional
issues related to Clinical Psychology and/or working in mental health organisations. Sessions usually last from half-day workshops
on effective communication and counselling skills to five-day packages on the principles of psychological models and interventions.
My training sessions tend to be experiential in nature, so that delegates learn through doing. I will always ensure that
delegates have opportunities to understand the evidence and theory underlying the content of the sessions, whilst
allowing plenty of space and time to practice new skills and concepts through role-play and small group discussion,
as well opportunities to reflect on these experiences.
I will tailor training sessions to meet your needs, considering what specific learning outcomes you're hoping to achieve, and what
the training needs of the audience are.
I am happy to receive enquiries about developing and delivering bespoke training packages. Please email me or complete the online
