Welcome, these pages will give you some information about our services and approach.
If you are wondering if I can be of help please feel free to contact me.

I am an experienced, accredited CBT therapist and I completed my specialist training in CBT at Royal Holloway University. I have also completed further training specialising in long term health conditions and behavioral couples therapy.

I have over twelve years experience of working in the NHS and I am currently working for the NHS as a manager, Senior CBT therapist and Supervisor. I have worked as a Clinical Tutor at University College London (UCL) teaching on the LI CBT course for six years.

I have worked with a wide spectrum of client problems including depression, low mood, stress, anxiety disorders including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Social anxiety, anger, low self-esteem, relationship distress and physical health conditions. I am experienced in working with individuals who experience issues with their weight and help them to understand the role comfort eating plays in their low mood and depression.

My key aim is to support clients to better understand their difficulties and gently confront the unhelpful responses that are maintaining their difficulties in a supportive manner. I provide a safe space and believe that clients are an active partner in treatment, I will work with you to meet your individual goals for therapy and believe that you are an active partner in treatment to support your own recovery. If you would like to find out more or to book your free initial consultation please do not hesitate to contact me.

I am an accredited member of the BABCP.

I am a Clinical Psychologist and Cognitive-Behavioural Therapist with over 10 years of experience helping people to improve how they are feeling. My approach is to work together with you so we have a joint understanding about what might be keeping you feeling stuck and to find more helpful ways to deal with the difficult feelings or situations you are experiencing.

I have specialist training in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy completing a Postgraduate Diploma in CBT from The Royal Holloway University of London. I also have special interest in mindfulness-based approaches such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which can be helpful for people experiencing recurrent depression or anxiety problems.

I have had over 6 years of experience working for the National Health Service in the UK and in that time I have worked in a range of services for both children and young people and adults, helping them to overcome difficulties such as: depression and low mood, stress and anxiety, self-esteem and confidence, relationship difficulties, sleeping problems, weight issues, and a range of anxiety disorders (Panic Attacks, Agoraphobia, Specific Phobias, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Hoarding, Health Anxiety, Social Anxiety, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder).
