About me

I am an experienced psychotherapist using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Schema Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and other evidence-based psychological therapies. I am specialising in the treatment of a wide range of anxiety disorders, depression, trauma, personality disorders, and addictions.

I am accredited with BABCP, a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the EMDR Association UK & Ireland.

My primary goal is to help you understand, manage and overcome your difficulties, process any unresolved issues, and and equip you with various tools to prevent a future relapse. In other words, I help you become your own therapist. The essence of my work is to develop a strong relationship with you based on empathy, active listening, acceptance and collaboration.

The main therapeutic models I use in my practice are the following:

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT): CBT focuses on achieving specific results within a defined time period and is based on proven research evidence.

Schema Therapy: for people with personality disorder traits. It combines aspects of CBT, Gestalt and psychoanalysis.

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR): to help people process unresolved trauma or any other distressing memories.

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT): It is based on CBT, but adapted for people with personality disorders, or for individuals who experience emotions very intensely.

I work with individuals and couples and I offer short- and long-term psychotherapy for a range of issues, from day to day worries to complex psychological conditions.
