I am semi-retired, having worked in the NHS as a Consultant General Adult Psychiatrist in Huntingdon and then in the Liaison Psychiatry Department of Addenbrooke’s Hospital as a Consultant Psychiatrist in Medical Psychotherapy. I still work on a voluntary basis for the NHS one day a week providing CAT therapy and supervision. I have also worked as the psychiatrist for the Cambridge University Student Counselling Service for over 10 years, until my retirement.
I trained in Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) in the early 1990’s and am a supervisor, trainer and past Chair of the national Association for Cognitive Analytic Therapy (ACAT) from 2017 until 2020.
I have presented my work at national and international CAT conferences and have written several articles for the journal of ACAT. My most recent publications include using CAT with young people and parents, working with medically unexplained symptoms using CAT and combining Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR) with CAT.
I have a particular interest in working with young people who have a diagnosis of personality difficulties or complex trauma.

I have a very small private practice and see people on a Wednesday online or in central Cambridge.
