About me

I am a fully accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with experience supporting people with depression, anxiety, trauma and adjustment disorder. I offer support to people particularly wanting to address negative thinking and behavioural patterns. Whilst the work I do does address past difficulties including the onset of the problem, the treatment looks at ways of breaking vicious cycles of anxiety and depression through exploring how those problems are maintained in the 'Here and now'.

Training, qualifications & experience

I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which is an evidence based therapy using interventions to help you work towards overcoming your difficulties. I use a flexible approach to the treatment depending on what you'd like to get from therapy and all sessions are all one to one.

I have ten years experience in working face to face with people wanting support in improving the quality of their emotional, mental and physical well-being.

I have treated people in a one to one and group setting. My clients have sought support for numerous difficulties including PTSD, panic disorder, depression/low mood, managing chronic health problems, low self-esteem, OCD, health anxiety and social anxiety.

As well as CBT I use Motivational Interviewing and aspects of Acceptance Commitment Therapy in my sessions.

I offer a free initial consultation so that we can have a talk about what you'd like to get from therapy and from there we can discuss how to proceed with the treatment sessions. Sessions are typically weekly for 50 minutes and can be carried out face to face, telephone and online via Zoom.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I have previously worked in hospitals across London helping support people with long term physical health conditions which have an impact on people's wellbeing. I have experience in supporting people with COPD, diabetes, coronary heart disease and Multiple Sclerosis. This has included helping people in coming to terms with their diagnosis, both recently diagnosed and a diagnoses that may have been present for a number of years. Also, helping people to manage anxiety about the condition and their future, as well as anxiety regarding their symptoms and how to live with them day to day. My work has also included the support of people with persistent physical symptoms such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and IBS.

As part of my work in hospitals offering therapy, I have worked with people who have undergone limb reconstruction surgery after an accident. This work has involved helping them to come to terms with the changes it has brought on in their lives, as well as managing PTSD as a result of the accident.

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.
