I am a BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist with 25 years experience in Adult Mental Health. My most recent NHS employment has been with the Anxiety Disorder Residential Unit, a Specialist National Unit for the treatment of treatment resistant OCD and other anxiety disorders. I consider myself to be a Specialist in the treatment of a range of anxiety disorders but also other mental health problems. I offer individual therapy, but also involve friends and relatives if this is I see the majority of my clients in my clinic or GP premises and accept self-referrals but also referrals from other professionals, Health Insurers and Rehabilitation Companies. I also offer home visits and home treatment i.e. intensive home treatment for the treatment of OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder).
