About me

I am a Clinical Psychologist available for face to face appointments in Chiswick as well as Telephone and Online Counselling Sessions. Should you wish to book online with myself or any of my colleagues then please go to http://booking.thebritishcbtcounsellingservice.com/ for a Live Online Diary.

I work with adults, children, families and couples and use a range of therapies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) (including Third Wave approaches; Acceptance and Commitment Therapy {ACT}, Mindfulness and Compassionate Focused Therapy), Psychodynamic Therapy and Schema Therapy. I create an individualised treatment programme for each of my patients based on what they need and feel comfortable and taking into consideration what is proven to bring the fastest and most long lasting relief for their particular difficulty.

I am registered as a Practitioner Psychologist with The Health Care Professions Council (HCPC).

My Philosophy

Every person has things that happen to them that interfere with them truly living. Regardless of where you are on this journey, it often helps to have someone to talk to that will help you get back on track to where you need to be. If you have the courage to seek help in your time of need and the willingness to work towards your goals, then you are already on your way to getting your life back on the right path.

My Approach

I have more than 25 years experience working with a variety of client needs, such as depression, anxiety, anger management, PTSD, OCD, ADHD, eating-disorders, mood disorders, self-harm, phobias, relationship challenges, social struggles, chemical dependence and pain management.

My therapeutic style incorporates a variety of techniques and methods I have been trained in while working with clients, depending on their age, stage of life, personality and their presenting problem or circumstance.  I also specialise in working through past trauma and changing old patterns. Although my primary orientation is cognitive behavioural therapy, I tailor my sessions to individual needs. This means I employ various techniques from integrative approach, solution focused, narrative, psychodynamic, mindfulness.

In my work, I prefer to focus on what is happening right now to help you keep what is working and change what isn’t. There are times we must remove some roots to help us move forward and we can do that in a safe environment. Working with a psychologist who respects your values and life experience provides the potential for creating an atmosphere for growth further propelling the process of change.

My Motivation

I provide a safe and accepting environment to heal from past traumas, anxiety, and relationship difficulties, emotional distress and/or other psychological problems. If you’ve tried before but things just aren’t coming together you know how frustrating it is to not be able to be the real you. At first, I’ll help you identify where these difficulties come from, followed by learning and practising ways to manage negative symptoms, and last, we work together to resolve these issues at the root, so you don’t have to worry about them reoccurring. If you are ready, I’d be honoured to work with you.

I regularly attend evidenced-based trainings to be up to date with cutting edge treatment approaches. We will work together to create a holistic treatment plan that works for you to resolve these difficult areas. And because I value your time and all the work you’ve already put into your personal self-growth, I’m all about what will work

I believe in the process of therapy. Safety is essential at every age. Therapy can offer a safe place to process and work through personal issues confidentially. Take the first step toward change today!

A Little More About Me

I enjoy reading, exploring nature in my leisure time. I practice what I preach, especially applying mindfulness techniques to manage the frustration being ‘stuck’ in traffic, it works most of the time!

Health Insurance

Most national and international Private Healthcare companies are accepted including (but not limited to):

  • Bupa
  • Axa
  • Cigna
  • Pru Health
  • Aviva
  • Simply Health
  • WPA
  • and more…

It may be possible to use your private health insurance to cover the cost or part of the cost of your appointments. Each healthcare provider (Bupa, Axa, Aviva, Cigna etc) have slightly different policies but most of them are happy for you to approach us directly in the first instance.

Axa require a referral from a Psychiatrist in order to access your policy and we are happy to help arrange this with you.

Bupa require a referral from your GP in order to access your policy. GP’s are often happy to provide a referral following a phone consultation instead of a traditional face to face appointment in the surgery as it is more time efficient.

With the above a quick call to your healthcare provider should allow them clarify these details.

It is worth noting that not all policies will cover the full cost of your treatment. We will advise you of the availability of healthcare appointments, and any cost implications in your initial enquiry.

Some healthcare providers have fees which are different to our self funding rates detailed above. If these are less than our own rate we have to ask that the shortfall is made up by the patient. Please just remember to tell us who your provider is as soon as possible to avoid any confusion when booking.
