About me

​I am a Clinical Psychologist providing online counselling and online therapy using Skype.  I have worked in private healthcare settings and the NHS, and have helped people recover from problems including depression, anxiety, addictions, trauma, relationship difficulties, OCD, body dysmorphia  and personality disorders .

I believe that a good relationship is at the heart of effective therapy. My work is informed by a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, but I also employ ideas from Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy and humanistic psychotherapy. Prior to entering full-time independent practice, I worked at the Maudsley Hospital in London. I contribute to a research team at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (Kings College London), where I have provided teaching to Trainee  Psychologists.

​I support flexible therapy sessions (£70 per 50 minutes) and will consider concessions. Please contact me if you wish to arrange a consultation or have any other questions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a doctorate in Clinical Psychology (Salomons Centre for Applied Psychology) and a masters degree in Psychology (Kingston University). I also have an undergraduate degree in Philosophy from the University of Bristol.

I have worked in the NHS and private healthcare settings for six years. This has included work in many different kinds of services including addictions, older adults, child and adolescent mental health teams, inpatient settings, primary care therapies services and neuropsychiatric services.

HCPC

Health and Care Professions Council

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

Accessibility

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.
