About me

I am a BPS Chartered and HCPC registered Practitioner Psychologist, and I am accredited by the BABCP to offer Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). I have a private practice in Colchester and offer individualised psychological interventions for a variety of psychological difficulties, such as symptoms of anxiety and depression, trauma, low self-esteem, stress, relationship problems and transitional difficulties.

I have worked with a wide variety of people, from all walks of life and ages and backgrounds in different therapeutic settings including private practice, university setting, within the NHS and the not-for-profit sector.

Training, qualifications & experience

I came to Psychology in 2002 and received a MSc in Psychology from the University of Goettingen in Germany. I have completed a Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology in the UK, which specialised in CBT and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. I am an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and on the Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors (RAPPS).
