Professional background and experience

I qualified as a mental health nurse in 1998 and have spent the majority of my career working in the NHS.

Over this time I worked with a range of clients with varying diagnosis, managing their care in liaison with other professionals. My role has been to support individuals with complex mental health issues and their families to understand and more effectively manage their symptoms.

In my current role at Select Psychology I am often the first person you will speak to when making an enquiry regarding our services.

I offer free 15 minute telephone consultations that allow me to understand the issues that you are looking for help with and this helps us to find the psychologist or counsellor that can best meet your needs. I also offer one to one sessions, if you are looking to have a better understanding about your condition and would like help in managing your symptoms.

My other role within the company is to be the clinical eyes of the marketing and business development strategies and to ensure that clients have a good experience from initial contact through to discharge.

What to expect from our Therapists

We carry out rigorous checks and vet all our therapists before they join the team. They must meet with our high standards of professional specification which includes:

This means that the mental health professional you see will be qualified, experienced and competent.

We are a private mental health clinic and have a number of therapists with different specialities. Because of this, we can offer therapies to help with a wide range of mental health issues from Anxiety to PTSD and child psychology.

First, we carry out a triage step during a 15-minute free initial telephone consultation. Depending on the challenges you’re facing, we will then recommend a counsellor, CBT therapist or clinical psychologist.

We also have clinic locations throughout the North, so there is usually one not too far from you.

As a result, we can usually offer an appointment quickly and at a time and place convenient for you. But, above all, tailored to your needs.
