About me

Coronavirus crises

We are in the midst of a tiring and unprecedented time for us all. I am aware that social distancing can bring about an increase of major mental health difficulties, such as acute anxiety and panic attacks, low mood and depression. We might be also struggling with a recent trauma or loss.

Hello, a decision to reach out and talk about your difficulty can be the most difficult one to take. However, it can be life changing and perhaps the most important step you take in order to improve, deal with whatever symptoms/difficulty you may have and change the way you live and relate to yourself or others. I am very experienced, compassionate and skilled practitioner that provide a safe, efficient and transparent way of working.

I have developed an expertise in working with anxiety-related disorders, depression, early childhood abuse/complex trauma, PTSD or difficulty in relationships, both with ourselves and others. I also have specialist skills to help with complex bereavement including dealing with the effects of someone's suicide, eating disorders, coping with illness, personality disorder, anger; self esteem issues and many others.

As a psychologist, I am trained in a number of different modalities and ways of working which means I can tailor therapy to exactly your difficulty and use the most appropriate way of therapy that would suit you. Additionally, I obtained two specialists' training: Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing therapy (EMDR) and can offer a highly specialist assessment and trauma-focused therapy for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as well as complex trauma e.g difficulty stemming from an early childhood. EMDR is also very efficient in working with complex bereavement, traumatic losses and various phobias and fears and many other problems.

Do contact me for a  free telephone conversation and I will answer any questions you may have.

My other, a two year long training, is in Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) that is particularly helpful in recognising and understanding the underlying patterns that can lead to development of depression or anxiety or difficulty in relationships. However, understanding is often not enough so we would be working on making changes as well.

I have worked with many clients and mostly their whose feedback has been 'I wished I worked with you much sooner in my life' that leaves me feel privileged to be a part of one's journey.

I am based in Bloomsbury - Holborn (WC1) and in High Holborn/Chancery Lane. Both clinics are within reach of  Central London, Covent Garden, Farrington, Bank and West End.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am registered with the Health Professional Council (HPC) as a Counselling Psychologist and I am a member of the British Psychological Society (MBPsS).

I am fully trained in the Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing therapy (EMDR) which is a recommended treatment for PTSD by the NICE (National Center for Clinical Excellence).

I am further trained in Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) and systemic therapy. The process of CAT involves looking at patterns of relating and the effect they can have on the individual and their relationships with others. CAT can be an effective therapy for depression, anxiety and the treatment of borderline personality disorder. It is also a recommended approach for the treatment of eating disorders such as anorexia. If you are coming to therapy feeling troubled by your relationships with other people, then CAT might be the appropriate therapeutic approach for you.

I adhere to the Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy with both HCPC and BPS.
