About me

Perhaps you’re going through a life transition? Or maybe you find yourself worrying about what the future may hold, sending you into a spiral of anxiety? Or perhaps you’re ruminating about the past? Whatever your triggering situation, I’m guessing you might be feeling as if you’re constantly on edge and unable to manage your feelings the way you would perhaps like to?

I’m assuming that this is probably not the first therapy advert you have looked at. You’re probably having doubts about the fee. I’m guessing, that for you, this search for psychotherapy may feel like the last resort. Maybe you’ve got some uncertainties about psychotherapy - like it might go on and on for years and just costs time and money. Most people find it difficult to confront themselves and maybe you’ve had a bad experience with therapy in the past and feel iffy about the whole thing.

I know a thing or two about human psychology and especially human suffering. I’ve devoted the past 15 years to the research and practice of psychology and have specialised in the psychology and treatment of mood and anxiety disorders. I practice formulation-driven therapy and develop unique, individualised treatment plans that have endings in sight - without feeling rushed. All interventions within the treatment are thoroughly grounded in research. Together we will closely follow your progress, making sure that what we do is effective -and adapting the treatment as necessary as we go. I see psychotherapy as an investment and have seen many, many benefits emerge from a course of treatment. Most people experience it as hard work but worth it. Some say it’s life changing, others experience it as necessary for their development. Only time will tell how you will feel by the end of it.

In the therapeutic relationship I believe in being real. When I meet clients I do so with genuineness, while remaining well-balanced and professional whilst adhering to the ethical frameworks of the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) and the British Psychological Society (BPS). I am bound by confidentiality, meaning that everything you say will be treated within our initial confidentiality agreement.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have spent the past decade working with and studying individuals suffering from mental health problems such as;

- Panic Disorder with and without agoraphobia,
- Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD),
- Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD),
- Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD),
- Obsessive-compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Depressive Disorder incl. Chronic
- Specific Phobias including phobia of heights

...as well as non-diagnosable issues such as;

- Low self-esteem
- Procrastination
- Excessive negative self-talk
- Anger issues
- Perfectionism
- Relationship issues
- Workplace burn-out

Coming from a counselling psychology background I use a formulation-driven integrative framework to the practice of psychological therapy. I am trained in several evidence-based approaches including CBT and Humanistic-experiential psychotherapies. An advantage of being trained in more than one approach is that I am competent in using a wide range of techniques and have the ability to fit the treatment to your needs, rather than be restricted to one set of 'tools' when practising therapy.

My past clinical experiences include working as Specialist Psychotherapist in the NHS in London with both with long-term and short-term conditions; as a Humanistic-experiential Psychotherapist in a Community-based Counselling Centres and within Primary Care in southern parts of Sweden, a Forensic Psychiatric Hospital and in Private Practice in Los Angeles, California. I am well versed in bilingualism and multi-cultural identities and I am able to offer therapy in more than one language (Swedish & English).

My practice is based in Central London in High Holborn, just off Chancery Lane Station, within easy reach of Waterloo, West End and the City.
