I am a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (BABCP Accredited) experienced in working with individuals with a wide range of anxiety and depression related issues. I also have extensive experience in working with people with addiction issues. In addition to working in private practice I am employed by the NHS. I am also a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS).
My primary goal is to help you understand, manage and overcome your difficulties as well as to equip you with various tools to prevent a future relapse. In other words, I help you become your own therapist. The essence of my work is to develop a strong relationship with you based on empathy, active listening, acceptance and collaboration.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy focuses on achieving specific results within a defined time period and is based on proven research evidence. In my practice I also use Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Schema-focused cognitive therapy and other skills for people who have personality disorder traits.
I am offering short-term, long-term, or open-ended therapy depending on each individual's needs. I am providing therapy face-to-face, via Skype, or over the telephone.
