About me

I am a CBT/DBT therapist based in Liverpool Street, Central London. I have a Doctorate in Psychology from Middlesex University and an MSc in Culture and Mental Health from University College London.

I have had extensive training in Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and is supervised by a Clinical Psychologist who was herself trained by Masha Linehan, the Founder of DBT.

I also have a Post Graduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy from New Buckinghamshire University. I am multilingual, speaking English, Russian and Ukrainian. I am the only Russian/ Ukrainian speaking psychologist in London Liverpool Street, City, Central London. I also see private clients at my clinic at 63 St Mary Axe, EC3A 8AA, office 132.

I have extensive experience of working with borderline personality disorder (BPD) which is my speciality. I previously worked in a private hospital in north London (The Priory) for four years, where I ran a DBT group as well as a Compassionate Focus group.

I also ran Cognitive Behavioural Therapy groups, and assisted a DBT team working with children. I have worked with individual patients with a range of presentations, including depression, anxiety, phobias and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

I have worked in the NHS, with the IMPART team, specialising in helping clients diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) to teach them skills to regulate their emotions more effectively, improve their interpersonal effectiveness and build "a life worth living". I am highly trained in the DBT approach. I have been taught by internationally known DBT specialists, who have in turn been trained by Professor Marsha M. Linehan, the original Founder of DBT.

In addition, I have produced over 50 psychological reports of high standard, requested by clients or their Solicitors. I can work with clients using, inter alia, English, Russian, Ukrainian, and other Eastern European languages, producing reports in English that have proved universally acceptable in legal circles in cases relating to immigration and minor and major road traffic accidents.

I have successfully treated patients with a variety of presentations, including anxiety-related disorders including panic attacks, phobias, OCD, PTSD, GAD, health anxiety and social anxiety, also depression, addictions, eating disorders and behavioural issues, sleeping disorders, couple issues, low self-esteem, assertiveness, stress-related issues, anger management and many others.

I offer a non-judgmental compassionate approach to resolve your problem. I am  here not to judge or criticise you. I will be understanding and supportive. Following my therapy, you will become more aware of what maintains your problem and how your way of thinking affects the way you feel and behave.

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.
