I'm very sorry, but I am unable to take on any new clients for the foreseeable future.
You may be looking for therapy for a number of reasons... perhaps struggling with an eating disorder, unwanted changes in your life, or managing difficult feelings or behaviours? Or maybe you have recognised a troubling pattern in yourself or perhaps something less defined that you are trying to make sense of.
Over the years I have become a leading specialist in eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorders, anxiety, depression, family problems and interpersonal relationships in the NHS and private sector. I am a published researcher and also work as the Clinical Lead and Principal Psychotherapist / Supervisor at the world renowned South London & Maudsley NHS alongside internationally acclaimed Professor Treasure, Professor Schmidt & Dr Kate Tchanturia. Qualified as an integrative psychotherapist I have many years experience working with a wide range of issues. I'm only a click or phone call away for you.
Talking to a therapist may help you to gain an understanding about the issues(s) troubling you. I can provide a private safe space just for you to think about where you are and where you want to be. Therapy aims to help you deal with and overcome issues that are causing emotional pain or making you feel uncomfortable. It can provide a safe and regular space for you to talk and explore difficult feelings. I will be there to support you and respect your views. I will help you find your own insights into and understanding of your problems.
To tailor the right treatment therapy for you, I use a variety skills & tools and therapeutic approaches including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), maudsley approaches, psychodynamic therapy, schema, interpersonal therapy, family therapy, solution focused therapy and specialist supportive care. If you are suffering from an eating disorder you'll have the added reassurance that I am also a nurse and therefore we can work together in understanding your physical health issues/results as part of the treatment. If you wish I can also be in close contact with your GP.
I have many years experience as a psychotherapist/supervisor & nurse having completed a Bachelor of Science (BSc) Hons in Psychology, a Masters (MA) in Counselling Psychology, a Diploma in Mental Health Nursing. In addition: completed supervision training at Institute of Psychiatry and Postgraduate certificate in Family Therapy. Full member (Accred) of British Association of Counsellors & Psychotherapists, and currently completing a Doctorate in psychotherapy studies.
Currently seeing people using secure online video platforms. The Central London practice is just of Oxford Street / Bond Street, easily accessible from all over London. Kings Langley consulting rooms is based in Kings Langley and covers Hemel Hempstead, Watford, Abbots Langley, Apsley, Chipperfield, Berkhampsted, Sarratt, Bovingdon, and St Albans.
For an informal talk please feel free to either give me a call or e-mail.

Looking for help for your under 18 child with a possible or developing eating disorder? Please note that all under 18's with a suspected eating disorders (no matter how mild) has to be seen within 2 weeks under NHS Child and Adolescent Eating Disorders Services. This is due to NHS-E Waiting Time and Standards for young people with an eating disorder. The NHS child and adolescent eating disorder service is able to provide full wrap around care for your child and your family. Please ask your GP to refer, or check your area to see if you can self refer. If your GP has referred then I'd encourage you to follow up by contacting the service directly to ensure the referral has reached them and not the generic child and adolescent mental health services.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

When I work
09am - 6pm appointments available
Video / Online email support / Telephone sessions / Face to Face
In this time, online video sessions are working just as well for people. The advantage of this type of treatment is that it can provide flexibility and convenience. Your support can be tailored to fit in with you.
Sessions are 50 minutes long and generally take place once or twice per week depending on your needs identified in the assessment. Therapy can last anything between six weeks and two to three years, depending on your individual needs, and we would discuss this together.
