Clinical interests: My clinical interests lie in the areas of health and rehabilitation psychology. My theoretical orientation is cognitive-behavioural/behavioural. My current clinical practice takes place in the Clinical Neurosciences Department, primarily the Epilepsy Monitoring Unit. I act as a consultant regarding diagnosis, often with respect to conversion disorders (most often, psychogenic non-epileptic seizures), and comorbid psychiatric illnesses with epilepsy which can inform treatment. I also provide treatment to both inpatients and outpatients who have been diagnosed with conversion disorders, mood, anxiety and personality disorders.
