About me

A former NHS psychologist, my approach is clinically-focused with an emphasis on the development of understanding and change within a time-frame, typical interventions lasting between 6-12 sessions.

In these difficult times, flexible access to treatment is made more easy so evening and weekend appointments are no problem.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is an evidenced-based approach which can be used to address many common psychological problems. A collaborative and dynamic approach is developed, allowing client and therapist to tackle problems together. Homework tasks are set between sessions to encourage change, each step of the way being supported in sessions.

Referrals

Access to private CBT treatment can occur via a number of routes, the most common include:

  • Self-referral – simply call or email directly and set up an initial assessment appointment.
  • GP referral – as a privately funded client or via private medical insurance (BUPA).
  • Psychiatric referral – as a privately funded client or via a large range of private medical insurers.
  • Rehabilitation – referral by rehabilitation agencies following an accident or traumatic event.

Assessment

Typically, an initial meeting is arranged to take the full history of the problem to facilitate the exposition of a formulation of the problem. The meeting is concluded with recommendations for the most appropriate way forward which may include a recommendation for CBT treatment or a variety of appropriate onward referral pathways.

Confidentiality

All data is treated in strict confidence as required by the British Psychological Society, the HealthCare Professions Council and the Information Commissioners Office (registered data processor).

Training, qualifications & experience

A chartered (BPS) and registered (HCPC) Counselling Psychologist, I have been working in private practice since 2007.

Over the years, I have enjoyed working in many settings; in the NHS as an assessing and treating psychologist in primary care, working with individuals and groups; as a salaried assessing psychologist and as the Clinical Manager for AXAPPP Healthcare.

I am currently conducting research for a D.Psych at City University.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

Remote working means that accessibility jut requires a piece of technology like a smart phone.

Availability

Working remotely means I am very flexible and can usually accommodate most clients.
