About me

I am a clinical psychologist with more then 15 years of experience. In my private practice, I offer individual therapy for adults and adolescents, as well as parental counselling. I am also available for clinical supervision for psychologists and psychotherapists. My consulting rooms are centrally based close to the Parliament Hill side of Hampstead Heath. 

I currently work as a lead psychologist for an adult health psychology service in a NHS teaching hospital. In this role I offer specialised therapy to adults and young adults with a range of psychological difficulties.

Seeking Therapy

Working with a psychologist can provide a safe space to process hard experiences or painful emotions. My approach to therapy is dynamic and evolves collaboratively to meet the needs of each individual that I work with.

Short-term courses of therapy range from 6 to 12 sessions. The first few sessions are used for an assessment and to slowly get to know more about the individual presenting for therapy. A formulation will be presented to all people after the assessment with treatment recommendations.  The client can then decide how to proceed and we would discuss the aims of therapy, the number of sessions and the therapeutic techniques that would be helpful. 

I have studied and worked clinically with the following modalities of therapy: Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, Mentalisation Based Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I also have specialist training in the treatment of acute and historical symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. 

I also offer longer term open ended psycho dynamic therapy. Psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapy can provide a supportive space to manage stress, help increase self awareness, and understand more about intimate relationships.
