About me

I work using a range of therapeutic modalities, though I primarily practice using a CBT approach. The therapy I offer is time-limited and goal-directed.

I work in a collaborative way with people and try to help them with the whole spectrum of difficulties that they are experiencing, such as depression, anxiety, managing physical health conditions, relationship problems, procrastination, sexual problems, etc. I have worked with people from a broad range of backgrounds, sexualities, and ethnicities. I pride myself on developing good working alliances with whoever I am seeing.

I am a Chartered Psychologist (BPS), a HCPC-registered Practitioner Psychologist, a BABCP-accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist, and I am on the BPS Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors.

I am able to treat face-to-face or using Skype. I am also a BUPA-recognised provider.

Pre-assessment no-fee phone call

Before arranging to meet for an assessment, it is best for us to speak with each other on phone. I can answer any questions you might have and I will try to get a sense of whether I might be able to help you with your difficulties.
