I am so pleased to introduce you to my website. I have been working as a chartered clinical psychologist for over 30 years in the public sector, the NHS and privately. I am also a writer and broadcaster specialising in parenting, child development, child psychology and sleep. I hope you find something here to interest and inform you.Please look around to find examples of the expertise I offer, including expert comment and advice on child and parenting issues on television, radio, in print, and online.
I am experienced in working with a wide range of brands from commercial, government and charitable organisations. I typically provide radio days, print interviews and comments including quotes or reports on product relevant research. Recently I have worked successfully with Seven Seas, Ribena Plus, and Findababysitter.com on screen, radio and in print.
I am familiar with and comfortable working on camera. As a parenting expert and clinician I have delivered on-screen parenting and therapy sessions as well as online video’s. My experience includes the onscreen input for ITV 1 series ‘Driving Mum and Dad Mad’ and dealing with individual and family issues in the Bio Channel’s ‘Chawners’ Last Chance.’ Online, I’ve contributed practical parenting videos to the Department of Education’s Parentchannel.tv.
I started writing for the public over 20 years ago whilst working as a clinical psychologist in Western Australia. Since then I’ve written books, magazine articles, answered parenting questions online and in print and provided expert comment for numerous magazines and newspapers.
I thoroughly enjoy writing and specialise in covering children’s development, behaviour, sleep and emotional well-being as well as anything and everything about being a parent from pregnancy onwards.
As a chartered clinical psychologist working with children and families for three decades both in the NHS and in private practice, I offer clinical supervision to others working in this field.
