Chartered Clinical Psychologist MSc, DClinPsy, CSAccred

About me

​I am a Clinical Psychologist providing online counselling and online therapy. I have helped people recover from problems including phobias, depression, generalised anxiety, social anxiety, addictions, trauma, relationship difficulties, OCD, body dysmorphia, and personality disorders.

My aim is to create a safe, non-judgemental environment in which difficulties may be constructively understood, and appropriate strategies can be applied to address them.I believe that a good relationship is essential for effective therapy. I strive to be compassionate, considerate and thoughtful in all of my interactions with my clients. 

I draw on significant clinical experience in the NHS and private settings to provide a nuanced approach to client difficulties. My work is primarily informed by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, but I also integrate ideas from Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, ACT and Humanistic Psychotherapy.

I have previously worked in the NHS at the Maudsley and Lambeth Hospitals in South London. I have published psychological research with the Institute of Psychiatry (Kings College London), and at presently have a role as a teaching associate at the Salomons Centre for Applied Psychology.

Please contact me if you wish to arrange a consultation or have any other questions.
