About me

Much of the work that takes place in my sessions involves focusing on managing difficulties in the present moment. Although we do explore the onset and triggers for your difficulties, we look at how we can work with them in the here and now. This is achieved through exploring how the way you think and behave affects the way you feel, both emotionally and physically. We look at trying to challenge unhelpful ways of thinking and unhelpful behavioural patterns to break free from vicious cycles that might be affecting our happiness.

Training, qualifications & experience

It takes a lot of courage to reach out and ask for help, working as a therapist I am aware of the need to have some support from time to time. It is important to remember that we all have mental health as we do physical health and it needs as much care and attention.

I have nearly ten years experience working with people who would like to improve their well-being with seven years specifically using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.  over this time, I have learned the importance of adapting CBT to the individual so that it fits them and not the other way around. I have also had training in other areas to help improve my own skills and give my clients more than just one approach.

As well as working with clients looking to improve their mood and learn to manage stress, I am a qualified supervisor who offers advice and guidance to other therapists. More recently I have had the pleasure to teach other professionals at King's College London and University College London.

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.
