About me

I am a Clinical Psychologist, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapist and EMDR Therapist with over 20 years of experience in the field.

I am passionate about helping you to create a life that is rich and fulfilling, where fears, self-doubt or other difficult thoughts or feelings, don't hold you back. 

I work with individuals experiencing a broad range of difficulties. This may include struggling with distressing thoughts or memories, experiencing emotions or sensations that feel overwhelming, lacking a sense of purpose and meaning or feeling stuck and unable to take positive action in life.

As a Clinical Psychologist, I am trained in a range of psychological approaches and have worked with individuals of all ages and from a range of backgrounds throughout my career. 

Therapeutically I primarily draw on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and EMDR after seeing the benefits of these therapies on my own life and those I have worked with. 

I am interested in holistic approaches to wellbeing, believing you can't have a healthy mind without having a healthy body and vice versa. 

Along with training in current psychological approaches to mental health and wellbeing, I am interested in ancient approaches to wellbeing such as Ayurveda and Homeopathy and have recently trained as a Yoga Teacher. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I am registered as a Clinical Psychologist with the HCPC and a CBT Therapist with the BABCP. I am also fully trained in EMDR and a qualified Yoga Teacher.

Additional information

We will start with an initial consultation to briefly discuss your difficulties and what you are hoping for. I will explain in more detail the way that I work and discuss the different options that are available to you.

If you decide to work with me, we will have an initial exploration session where we will explore your difficulties, history, strengths, and goals in more detail. Following this I will provide you with an individualised formulation and recommendations. 

  • I offer in person sessions from my office in Canary Wharf on a Monday
  • I can also offer online sessions on a Thursday 

Exploration & Recommendations

This includes 2 x 50-minute exploration sessions, individualised formulation, recommendations and resources. This option is good if you want to develop some understanding about yourself and want some guidance on areas to work on without committing to ongoing therapy sessions. 

Exploration & Treatment Plan

This includes 2 x 50-minute exploration sessions, individualised formulation and treatment plan. The treatment plan will include my recommendations for therapy and predicted number of sessions needed. This option is good if you want to work with me and can commit to regular weekly/biweekly sessions.  

  • Initial Consultation: Free
  • Exploration - 2 x 50-minutes: £200
  • Ongoing sessions - 50-minutes: £100

Further information

I believe that awareness and understanding are the keys to any meaningful personal change. As such, my approach starts with exploration sessions, where we will explore your difficulties, history, strengths, and goals in more detail and I will provide you with an individualised formulation and recommendations. 

A psychological formulation is a collaborative, dynamic and evolving process. It is a way for us to work together to understand YOU and any psychological difficulties or challenges you may be experiencing. It is a conceptual framework developed to make sense of your symptoms, behaviours, and experiences within a psychological context.

A formulation attempts to answer the question of "why" you are experiencing certain difficulties. By exploring the underlying causes, maintaining factors, and relevant influences, a formulation aims to provide insights into your unique psychological makeup and serves as a roadmap to promote positive personal change. 

As a psychologist, a formulation helps me to tailor my recommendations and treatment plan, so they address your unique requirements and support my aim of helping you to create a rich, fulfilling and meaningful life.

Therapeutically I primarily draw on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and EMDR after seeing the benefits of these therapies on my own life and those I have worked with.
