About me

Hello, I'm a Clinical Psychologist and Certified Advanced Level Schema Therapist.  I work in the NHS in London and also privately and have over 20 years experience working with adults in mental health.

Sometimes life throws challenges at us that can have a real impact on how we feel about ourselves and how we cope.  We may be struggling with a relationship or facing issues at work or we might be trying to overcome more long standing difficulties from our past that may be traumatic even though they happened a long time ago.  I can help you make sense of these experiences and problems and provide hope for a more fulfilling and meaningful life. 

Psychological research has repeatedly shown that the relationship you have with your therapist is an important mechanism for change regardless of the model or approach used.  My style is warm, friendly and approachable and I aim to make our sessions feel safe and supportive whilst focusing on your goals.  

I offer treatments that are proven to be effective including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Cognitive Therapy for Trauma and Schema Focused Therapy and depending on the problem I integrate and tailor these approaches to meet your individual needs and circumstances.  I work with a wide range of difficulties including anxiety, stress, panic, depression, low self-esteem, PTSD, childhood trauma, anger, loneliness, bereavement and relationship difficulties.
