About me

I am an experienced Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and fully accredited member of the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP), BSc (Psych.), PgDip.

My professional clinical experience and training covers a wide range of mental health problems within a wide variety of clinical settings in both Primary and Secondary care.

I have delivered Dialectical Behavioural Therapy as part of the East London and the City Mental Health Trust. I also worked with the Depression and Anxiety Service team in Exeter, East and Mid Devon for five years and, most recently, I worked with survivals of childhood trauma for the Psychology and Psychotherapy Department in Exeter.

Training, qualifications & experience

I deliver high quality Cognitive Behavioural therapy and third wave treatments which enables me to work to high standards and to maintain adherence to evidence-based interventions for simple and complex presentations.

I use an integrative approach and draw from different theoretical and practical perspectives in order to better understand problems and to inform appropriate therapeutic interventions. The approaches I work with are a combination of Cognitive and Behavioural approaches, Compassionate Mind and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
