About me

I am a BABCP (British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists) accredited cognitive behavioural therapist who has a wide experience offering Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) treatments to people who suffer from anxiety, stress and mood difficulties. I have over 16 years working in the health service, and my early career was an occupational therapist in the mental health setting.

I provide supervision to CBT trainees. I am also a committee member of the BABCP Compassion Interest Group (SIG) whom support and encourage research and clinical practice with compassion-focused CBT.

I completed the CBT training at the Royal Holloway University and later completed further CBT training at the Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London. These trainings were steeped in the evidence based CBT models, meaning these models have research evidence to support that they are effective treatments for people who suffer from anxiety and mood difficulties.

Prior to my CBT training, I worked as a senior Occupational Therapist in the mental health services (NHS). This clinical experience included working with both in-patients and out-patients to help them regaining skills and confidence to restart their activities of daily living. My clinical role also included providing supervision to junior occupational therapists and students.

I receive regular supervision and undertake CPD to maintain my professional registration.

I am bilingual. I speak fluent English and Chinese (Cantonese).


I provide CBT treatment for a wide range of psychological difficulties including:

Generalised anxiety disorder/excessive worry
Panic attacks
Specific phobias
Obsessive compulsive disorder
Post traumatic stress disorder
Depression/ re-current depression
self esteem/ confidence building
Stress
Health anxiety
Trichotillomania

People who suffer from long term physical health problem may also suffer from sadness and anxiety ( long term physical health problems such as heart problems, stroke, IBS, diabetes..etc). I offer a CBT in conjunction with the acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) approach to this patient group, which has shown to be helpful in research studies.

Experience:

My background is a senior occupational therapist. My experience of working in physical settings such as the stroke unit, the care of the elderly on the acute wards, orthopedics, and community rehabilitation have given me a good knowledge about how physical health conditions can impact on people's lives. I then specialised working as an occupational thearpist in mental health settings prior to becoming an accredited cognitive behavioural therapist.
