About me

I am an accredited cognitive behavioural therapist who works in the NHS and private practice. My clinical role involves offering CBT assessment, individual treatment and workshop to people who suffer from depression and anxiety difficulties. I also provide supervision to trainees who are undergoing postgraduate diploma in cognitive behavioural therapy.

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is an evidence based treatment for depression and a wide range of anxiety difficulties such as depression, panic attacks, agoraphobia, specific phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, health anxiety, self esteem, and trichotillomania. CBT is also an effective therapy for stress and sleeping problems. I provide treatment to the mood difficulties as above.

Seeing an accredited CBT therapist means that your therapist is trained to provide you with a safe and non-judgemental environment to share your experience, thoughts and feelings, so that we can work collaboratively as a team to explore the maintaining factors of your difficulties and to explore ways to overcome it. This also means that your therapist will ensure her knowledge and skills are up to date in order to provide you with an effective treatment.

While my aim is to create a supportive and non-judgemental environment for you to speak freely, it is important to note that CBT is a structured and a goal orientated therapy. This is because there is an emphasis about helping people to become your own therapist - meaning to enable you to gain a good understanding about the maintaining factors of the problem and to try out tools to overcome it. Therefore, I often encourage the patient to take an active participation in the session and to reflect on their learning in between sessions. I find the structure of the CBT sessions helps people to feel more confidence about making positive change in their lives and relapse prevention.

Training, qualifications & experience

My background is a senior occupational therapist. I spent my early years of my career working in physical setting such as the stroke unit, the care of the elderly on the acute wards, orthopedics, and community rehabilitation. I then specialised in mental health and I worked as a senior occupational therapist in the community mental health setting prior to me working an accredited cognitive behavioural therapist. My experience gives me a good knowledge and experience about how physical and also psychological problems can impact on people's lives. I hope that my background knowledge and CBT would help you to overcome your mood difficulties.

Qualifications:

I have almost 10 years of working as an occupational therapists. My work involves working in the acute settings and the out-patient settings with the aim to help people re-gaining the confidence and skills with their activities of daily living. I later completed further trainings in CBT and obtained two post graduate diplomas in CBT. I completed my training at the the Royal Holloway University of London and also the Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College London where both training providers are seen as gold standard in the U.K.
