I am a Consultant Forensic and Clinical Psychologist. I have had a private practice since January 2008. In terms of the forensic arena I have experience working with a range of offenders in a secure hospital environment, including adolescents, adults and older adults.
My experience includes working with those who fall on the autistic spectrum, have learning disability, psychosis, affective disorders and personality disorders.
Offence histories of clients I have worked with are predominantly of a sexual and violent (i.e. homicide; GBH; rape) nature, as well as arson.
I have designed/adapted and delivered offence specific treatments for adolescents and adults, such as an adapted sexual offender treatment programme, and undertaken extensive pre and post treatment assessment of risk.
I have previously prepared reports for CPA’s, tribunals, parole boards, family court and criminal court. On some occasions I have been required to give oral evidence at hearings for which I have prepared a report.
These reports include assessments of risk, psychological functioning and capacity to engage in a trial process.
