I have completed additional specialist training as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapist that allows me to deliver EMDR interventions and integrate EMDR techniques into his wider practice. EMDR is a therapy that relies less on talking and is designed to resolve unprocessed trauma.
I have worked in the field of clinical psychology since 2011 initially specialising in Paediatric Psychology. My undergraduate studies began at Manchester University and continued at Edinburgh University where I graduated with a Master Degree in Applied Psychology in Children and Young People in 2012. I continued to work with children and families within a specialist Children’s hospital in Glasgow until I moved to Birmingham to train as a Clinical Psychologist at the University of Birmingham in 2013 after which I specialised in working with young people who have experienced trauma. I have conducted research exploring how young people who have been adopted experienced peer relationships and designed a conversational computer-based therapy application whilst studying in Manchester that continues to undergo clinical trials.
