About me

I am a Registered Practitioner Psychologist with the HCPC as well as a Chartered Counselling Psychologist and Chartered Scientist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society and am trained as an Expert Witness Psychologist.

I provide specialist psychological assessments and evidence-based psychological treatment to a wide variety of adult and adolescent clients suffering from depression, anxiety, phobia, Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bereavement and loss, stress, and occasionally psychiatric disorders such as psychosis and bipolar disorder in conjunction with consultant psychiatric colleagues.

I work integratively, but mainly within a Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy framework (CBT), helping to empower clients that I work with to make the changes they wish to make in their lives to relieve distress and unhappiness.

I work as an Expert Witness for solicitors and provide court reports concerning client's psychological presentations and current needs, providing prognoses and treatment recommendations.

Major insurance companies request my services to provide detailed psychological assessments including specialised psychometric testing and treatment for their customers. These primarily centre around PTSD and travel anxiety resulting from road traffic accidents, for which I provide trauma focused CBT interventions, with a high success rate.

I work as a Rehabilitation Psychologist, working with clients referred by companies to assess and treat people who wish to return to work, but who are suffering from psychological conditions which require intervention.

Media work has involved contributing to magazine articles including the Lighterlife magazine, Grazia, Sainsbury's Magazine, and consultancy work for independent journalists and writers with regards to specific psychological issues such as eating disorders, general mental health and wellbeing.

I work as an honorary ad hoc Lecturer on the Clinical Psychology Doctorate programme at UCL and provide supervision to qualified and trainee psychologists.

Further information

I have been working in the field of mental health for over 15 years, with a wealth of experience in therapy practice, using evidence-based treatments to help people overcome a wide range of emotional difficulties, with a high success rate and positive feedback from clients I have worked with.

"I don't get the nightmares anymore. That part of my life has seen to be put to bed.  I really don't know what I would have done without your help.  I don't even know if I would have got through this year. I owe you so much... Thank you for all that you did for me" (Client seen for 12 sessions of therapy, 2017)
