About me

I practise REBT, a mode of CBT which I truly believe in, because I’ve seen it help both family and clients evolve into happier, more content, more resilient (but still imperfect!) people. I form a close and supportive bond with the clients I work with and love seeing the progress they make. REBT is practical. It’s rooted in reality as it is, not as we often see it. It gets to the heart of the beliefs we hold which underpin the emotions we experience.

We will work as a team to help you identify what's not been working for you and find healthy and productive ways forward. 

If you do get in touch, please be mindful to either save my email into your contacts, or keep an eye on your junk mail folder for my reply. I tend to get back to enquiries within 24-48 hours. Thanks

Training, qualifications & experience

A teacher for 17 years, I've always focussed on my student's wellbeing, as well as the emotional support of the families that I work alongside. This theme remains paramount in my work as a mental health professional and the reason why I chose REBT qualifications to further develop my career. 

All my training was carried out at the College of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies under the guidance of Principal, Avy Joseph, where I will shortly begin lecturing. I have worked with clients of most adult ages, through a range of challenging personal experiences, with a non-judgemental, open-minded approach, a sense of humour and in a mode of therapy which is based on rationality in the face of strong and often unsettling emotions.
