I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist and an Individual and Couple Psychodynamic Psychotherapist. I have over 10 years experience of working in the NHS. In my private practice, I see individuals and couples facing a wide variety of difficulties including relational and sexual issues, stress, depression, anxiety, loss of identity and unhappiness.
I draw on a range of models depending on the presenting issues and am trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Systemic Family Therapy as well as Individual and Couple Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. I also use behavioural, mindfulness and mentalisation based approaches, particularly in the context of physical health conditions, such as chronic ill health and acquired head injury.
If you have any questions about seeking therapy or if you would like to find out more about my way of working, please feel free to contact me via email or if you would prefer by telephone and I will try to reply within 24 hours of receiving your message. Following a first contact by email or phone, we can then agree a time to meet for an initial consultation. This meeting gives you the thinking space to describe what is causing you difficulties at present and to have an opportunity to think about how you got there so that we can start to see a way of working. If we agree that there is a way for us to work together, we can then arrange regular weekly sessions lasting 50 minutes.
Training, qualifications & experience
Training & Qualifications
- Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, University College London (UCL)
- Postgraduate Diploma in Individual and Couple Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Tavistock Relationships
I currently work at the highly reputable Tavistock Relationships where I am a faculty member of staff within a team of couple experts and work on the following programmes:
- National Training Lead and Supervisor for the NICE approved Couple Therapy for Depression programme for NHS practitioners within IAPT Services (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies). Couple Therapy for Depression is a model of working with couples where at least one partner is diagnosed with depression.
- Clinician, Supervisor and Lecturer for the ‘Living Together with Dementia’ programme. This is a specialist couple intervention aimed at improving the life experience of couples where one partner has a dementia by fostering more satisfying interpersonal engagement in such couples and strengthening their resilience in managing the illness together.
- Project Lead on a new pre-retirement pilot programme, ‘Retiring Together’ where I have set up a brief intervention service for couples 50+ as they approach the transition to retirement.
After qualifying as a clinical psychologist, I specialised in neuropsychology and cognitive disorders at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square. Over several years at Queen Square, I worked on a number of research studies and was the lead psychologist for neuropsychology workgroups for patients and carers addressing cognitive and emotional problems, with a focus on adjustment for a range of conditions, including Stroke and Multiple Sclerosis. I have also been lead psychologist on the Acute Brain Injury Unit, working with individuals, couples and families following acquired head injury. More recently, I worked as a principal clinical psychologist on a dementia research trial in the Neuroepidemiology and Ageing Research Unit, Imperial College London.
