About me

I am a Clinical Psychologist available for face to face appointments in Liverpool Street as well as Telephone and Online Counselling Sessions.

Should you wish to book online with myself or any of my colleagues then please go to:

I work with adults, children, families and couples and use a range
of therapies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) (including Third Wave approaches; Acceptance and Commitment Therapy {ACT}, Mindfulness and Compassionate Focused Therapy), Psychodynamic Therapy and Schema Therapy.

I create an individualised treatment programme for each of my patients based on what they need and feel comfortable and taking into consideration what is proven to bring the fastest and most long lasting relief for their particular difficulty.

I am registered as a Practitioner Psychologist with The Health Care Professions Council (HCPC).

My Philosophy

Some people who come for therapy do so because they have been struggling for a long time, maybe even all their life. For others their struggles may have started more recently, perhaps due to a specific life event, life circumstance or life stage.  Some people come with a clear ‘problem’ they want to solve or goal they’d like to work towards.  Others may have no idea about what/why/how they are struggling or what they want to get out of therapy. Instead they may feel lost, confused, scared or just generally feel unhappy or dissatisfied. If you were to start therapy with me my central aim would be to meet you exactly where you are (and that will change as therapy progresses) so that we can figure out together what will help you to move forward in your life for you.

My Approach

My training and experience allows me to draw on a range of therapeutic approaches including traditional CBT, ‘third-wave’ CBT approaches (e.g. ACT, MBCT, CFT and DBT), systemic therapy and psychodynamic theories.  This means that I can adapt my approach to suit the person in front of me.

I strive to open up a curious, questioning conversation free from prejudice or judgement which would allow you to think about your own thoughts, feelings, behaviours, ideas, norms, motivations, barriers etc.  This would help you to gain a deeper understanding of what your difficulties are and how these difficulties operate in relevant areas of your life.  With greater awareness and understanding often comes greater peace and acceptance of ourselves and our life situations. Paradoxically what I often see is that with greater peace and acceptance change can naturally happen.  Sometimes change and/or acceptance requires practice through more structured techniques or strategies.  In these situations I am skilled in suggesting and encouraging relevant exercises.

I also welcome conversations about any feelings that come up in the therapy or in response to the therapy or in response to myself.  The therapeutic relationship can be a great tool for exploring your relationship patterns and can offer a safe place to try out new ways of being.

My Motivation

As a young child I looked around and I saw suffering in the world. I remember thinking that if people could talk about their pain that this must surely make things a little bit less bad. As an adult, in my own therapy, I experienced the healing power that comes from another person really striving to understand you and your world. All the while holding positive regard and wanting the best for you no matter what comes up. My motivation comes from wanting to offer that same experience whether that means being with you as you struggle, celebrating with you as you make positive life changes, or the whole spectrum that comes in between.

A Little About Me

I like to adventure, whether that means seeing new things, doing new things meeting new people or seeing things through new eyes. I see therapy as the biggest adventure of them all. Sometimes it can feel new and daunting, sometimes scary or challenging and maybe even exciting. It can be hard to predict where we will end up but it is full of possibility.

Health Insurance

Most national and international Private Healthcare companies are accepted including (but not limited to):

  • Bupa
  • Axa
  • Cigna
  • Pru Health
  • Aviva
  • Simply Health
  • WPA
  • and more…

It may be possible to use your private health insurance to cover the cost or part of the cost of your appointments. Each healthcare provider (Bupa, Axa, Aviva, Cigna etc) have slightly different policies but most of them are happy for you to approach us directly in the first instance.

Axa require a referral from a Psychiatrist in order to access your policy and we are happy to help arrange this with you.

Bupa require a referral from your GP in order to access your policy. GP’s are often happy to provide a referral following a phone consultation instead of a traditional face to face appointment in the surgery as it is more time efficient.

With the above a quick call to your healthcare provider should allow them clarify these details.

It is worth noting that not all policies will cover the full cost of your treatment. We will advise you of the availability of healthcare appointments, and any cost implications in your initial enquiry.

Some healthcare providers have fees which are different to our self funding rates detailed above. If these are less than our own rate we have to ask that the shortfall is made up by the patient. Please just remember to tell us who your provider is as soon as possible to avoid any confusion when booking.

Recent Testimonials

“Feelings of anxiety will always be part of a busy lifestyle, but in my experience, having a strong CBT counsellor to help get those harsher aspects is essential. This is what I have achieved with Dr Green over 20 session and will continue to build on. Being local in Clapham helps take the edge off “of going to therapy”.

– Rebecca (Clapham)

“You’ve been there with me right in my darkest times – I’ve been more vulnerable with you than anyone in my life and shared all of my darkest fears. What you do for people who are struggling is such a great thing………So from the bottom of my heart – thank you! You’ve helped me to change everything I attract in my life, the way I think, the way I will one day parent and the path that now lies in front of me. In one way you could say that your impact will be seen for generations to come”.

– Clare (Clapham)

“I had a course of CBT Counselling with The British CBT & Counselling Service (Richmond) and although it didn’t provide me with the quick fix miracle solution I was hoping for, it has made my problems feel more manageable”.

– Chris (Richmond)
