About me

I am a chartered Health Psychologist providing individual therapy to adults in City of London and East London locations. I have many years experience working as a psychologist in the voluntary sector, civil service, NHS and independent practice.

I work with a range of therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing. I believe in working collaboratively with each client to find the therapeutic approach best suited to each client’s needs and experiences.

I have experience of working with the following issues:

  • Anxiety disorders
  • Depression
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Stress management
  • Anger management
  • Loss or bereavement
  • Sleep problems

I also have a particular interest and expertise in supporting people who are managing the impact of health conditions including adjustment to physical injury, (including acquired brain injury) and managing chronic pain.

I can offer a free 15 minute telephone consultation to discuss your needs and whether I am the appropriate person to work with you. If you choose to proceed we can then arrange an initial consultation appointment were we can consider the aims of therapy and possible time frames.

I can offer day time appointments on a Thursday and Friday and evening appointments on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. Some Saturday morning appointments may also be available.
