Markku pic (161x121)I am a highly experienced clinical psychologist, passionate about working with people who are having a difficult time. I have extensive training and experience of working across a variety of mental health difficulties, developmental disorders and age ranges with individuals, couples, and families. Currently I work as a Senior Lecturer in Psychological therapies at Northumbria University and in Private practice. Up until recently I was Clinical Lead/Principal Clinical Psychologist for an NHS adult mental health service in Cambridgeshire and before this I worked as a Senior Clinical Psychologist for an NHS Child and adolescent mental health service and Early Intervention for Psychosis service in Norfolk.

Over the last 16 years I have developed a passion for working with children and adults with a variety of mental health difficulties from depression to anxiety, behavioural and emotional difficulties to psychosis. I also have a special interest in working with developmental disorders such as autism spectrum conditions and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.  I am an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist (CBT) with the BABCP, Registered Practitioner Psychologist with the HCPC, and Associate Fellow and Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society. 

In therapy I use a variety of methods including CBT and systemic theories. I am also a therapist and trainer in Behavioural Family Therapy and have experience of delivering Programmes and supervision of Applied behaviour Analysis and Positive behaviour Support. 

I look forward to taking informal and formal enquirers from individuals and families and look at ways that we can work together in a warm and compassionate way to improve your quality of life. 


I offer appointments at Durham Therapy Centre on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
