About me

I am a Consultant Clinical Psychologist who can offer skype or telephone sessions to help to change your life. I provide a confidential and empathic space to help people to address and overcome their concerns. I have extensive training and experience in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and I am a Consultant on Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR). Using these two approaches I have helped many people to overcome past traumatic difficulties and to change their lives for the better.

I can offer you either short or long term work in a comfortable confidential setting in St Albans.

"Just being able to talk about anything without feeling judged has really helped me."

"The leaflets you gave me on anxiety and panic attacks really helped me to understand what was going on and helped me beat them".
