Selina graduated from Cardiff University in 2001 with a degree in Applied Psychology.  Following some time teaching English and volunteering with charitable organisations in Asia, Selina returned to the UK to work as a drug and alcohol worker in South Wales and South Yorkshire.  

She then worked as an assistant psychologist at a residential school for children with learning disabilities before starting her clinical psychology training at Leeds University.  Since qualifying as a Clinical Psychologist in 2010, she has worked in the NHS with people with learning disabilities and in secondary mental health care.  Selina is registered with the Health and Care Professionals Council (registration number: PYL26213).  

In her current role within the NHS, Selina offers medium term therapeutic work for individuals and groups with enduring and complex mental health difficulties.  She has experience working with people with chronic depression, anxiety, trauma-related difficulties (both simple and complex trauma), emotional dysregulation, personality disorders, deliberate self harm, eating disorders and difficulties arising from abuse.  

Her work is guided by each individual with a focus on collaborative and person centred therapy.  She has experience of working with a number of therapeutic models such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Cognitive Analytic Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Compassion Focussed Therapy and Mindfulness.  Her integrative approach allows her to tailor her therapy to the needs of each individual.  

In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her young family, exercising and being outdoors.

It also stands to spur development of hearing-aid technologies and brain-computer interfaces that more closely resemble the brain.
