About me

I am a Principal Clinical Psychologist specialising in depression, anxiety, relationships, and to the adjustment to dementia, working privately and within the NHS. I am based in London and Hull, and offer a range of psychological therapies with individuals and groups.

How I work/Specialism


I assist individuals to reduce distress and gain a sense of manageability over adversity by increasing resilience and internal security. As a clinical psychologist I can offer a range of therapies including Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT), Psychodynamic therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and therapy enabling the adjustment to lifelong conditions.

I offer a safe and supportive space in which to understand and work with difficulties, and can work flexibly according to suit each individual's unique needs.

Dementia support

Using proven psychological principles and techniques I assist people with dementia, and their families and carers, to remain connected with their sense of self, manage difficult presentations and to maximise their potential.

What to expect from your first appointment

You would be offered a safe space in which we would work together to understand your difficulties. Usually one session is enough for us to think about a plan for a potential way forward, though sometimes this can take longer based on your needs.

Clinical Supervision and Consultation

I offer Clinical Supervision for psychologists and Consultation for those hoping to build further clinical competencies.
