About me

I am a highly specialised clinical psychologist with over 10 years’ experience of working therapeutically in the NHS and in private practice. I work with adults and adolescents (16+ years) with longstanding emotional and psychological difficulties, as well as those struggling with an acute crisis or period of stress. My areas of particular specialism are helping people to move on from traumatic events, improve their confidence, develop healthier relationships with food and/or their bodies, and learn to manage difficult emotions.

Having been trained in different approaches, I draw upon best practice guidelines to create individually tailored conceptualisations and treatment plans, according to the difficulties with which you are struggling and the changes you wish to make. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process in which we work together to enhance awareness and understanding, which then provides opportunities for making different choices and achieving different outcomes. I also believe that it is vital for therapy to take place in a safe and trusting environment, so I pay particular attention to the quality of therapeutic relationship that we develop.

I have availability in various South London locations, please email me for more details.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Registered Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) who are responsible for the statutory regulation of the profession. I am also a Chartered Member of the British Psychological Society (BPS).

I completed my postgraduate Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsy) at Salomons, Canterbury Christ Church University in 2010. Since then I have worked in a busy community mental health team in South London and am currently one of the lead psychologists, offering specialist interventions for people struggling with anxiety, depression, personality difficulties and trauma.

I have completed advanced trainings in Schema Therapy, a specific type of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), for both individuals and groups. I also draw upon Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in my work.

Additionally, I am an accredited Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) practitioner.

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.
