About me

I am an experienced psychologist and have worked over 20 years within the NHS psychology services offering psychological therapy to help with: anxiety-related disorders, depression, the effects of childhood adverse experiences, abuse including domestic abuse, complex trauma, PTSD or difficulty in relationships, both with ourselves and others. I can 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.

I am fully trained in a number of different therapeutic ways of working including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT), Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET) and systemic therapy.

Each of us is unique and, following an assessment and our joint agreement for goals in therapy, I will tailor a clear therapeutic plan and approach best suited to your needs and preferences while using the most efficient therapy modality. I am an avid follower of the latest development in research when it comes to understanding our functioning and difficulties as well as therapy models. I adhere to the ethical framework of both BPS and HCPC.

My particular clinical interest lies in the field of Psycho-trauma and I can offer a highly specialist assessment and trauma-focused therapy for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as well as complex trauma (for example, resulting from the childhood trauma, sexual abuse, domestic abuse and complex bereavement)

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

I trained in psychotherapy called Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) at the St Thomas's Hospital in London over a decade ago and I am passionate is helping recognise and understand the underlying patterns of behaviour that can lead to a number of unhelpful ways in which we relate to ourselves and others. This is also a recognised approach in helping deal with eating disorders that are not requiring hospital management.

I work in central London, in Bloomsbury and in High Holborn as well in north London. Central London clinics are within reach of  Central London, Covent Garden, Farrington, Waterloo, Bank and West End
