I am a Senior Lecturer in the Unit for Psychological Medicine in the Centre for Psychiatry & Mental Health and Programme Director for the MSc programme in Forensic Psychology & Mental Health, which is accredited by the BPS. I am a Chartered Forensic Psychologist and an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society. I completed her Doctorate in Forensic Psychology at the University of Birmingham, with research focusing on the link between childhood experiences, personality and parenting behaviour.

I hold close links with the Offender Personality Disorder Pathway across London and frequently works as an Expert Witness across the Justice System, with a focus on the Family Courts. I am experienced in the assessment and treatment of a range of mental health, personality, and risk related difficulties. I have a specific expertise in the assessment of parents within the Family Courts, employing a trauma informed and domestic abuse informed approach. I have undertaken training in a range of therapeutic approaches that I use in clinical practice including Schema Therapy, Mentalisation Based Treatment, and brief Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. I am also a Stage 2 Assessor for the British Psychological Society’s Qualification in Forensic Psychology.
