Since qualifying in Occupational and Organisational Psychology in 1998, I have worked as an Occupational Psychologist in Occupational Health Services for the NHS and Local Government, and for private sector organisations such as Toyota, Plastipak and Kronospan. Initially I qualified in Music Performance in 1984 and have since combined my careers in music and psychology as a Performance Stress Management specialist. I have worked with music students, professional musicians, performers and organisations including The Liverpool Philharmonic and The Halle Orchestra.
Incorporating Human Givens methodology into my work since 2008 has been a natural progression and my experience as a musician, psychologist and Human Givens therapist enables me to apply practical and scientifically based skills to help clients overcome their emotional distress, develop and activate their resources, resilience, coping and problem solving abilities.
I see clients who are referred to me in clinics by Occupational Health Services, or by organisational Human Resource managers, or I take private self referrals. I can see clients for consultation by arrangement in their workplace, or at my base in Cosheston.
My work with the NHS has included DBS (formerly CRB) checks.
