About me

I treat people who are suffering from stress, anxiety and depression, low self esteem, relationship issues and workplace stress. I have my own model of resilience which I use to enable people to recover quickly from the situations that knock them down. I then enable them to determine their own pathway to flourishing.

The following are my specialisms: Abuse, addictions, anger, anxiety, bereavement and loss, bullying, communication and workplace issues, depression, stress, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder, phobias, illness anxiety, social anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), trauma, relationship issues, road traffic accidents, cultural issues, spiritual issues, sexuality. Once people are able to manage difficult emotions I encourage them to discover a pathway to resilience and flourishing using he principles and findings of positive psychology.

Till 2017, I was an academic teaching CBT at Masters level. I have a research doctorate from Oxford University.

I also offer supervision to trainees and CBT practitioners.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have doctoral level qualifications in counselling psychology. I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist and an accredited cognitive behaviour therapist (CBT).  I am accredited by the following professional bodies and abide by their codes of ethics: BABCP, HCPC and BPS. The BABCP is the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies and is the only association that awards bonafide accreditation to practice as a cognitive behaviour therapist. I have also taught counselling and CBT at post graduate level at the University of Surrey, Roehampton University and London South Bank University. In addition, I have a doctorate in psychology from Oxford University.

I have over 25 years of experience. My approach to counselling is informed primarily by CBT, mindfulness and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). However I am integrative in approach and sometimes weave my background of Transactional Analysis and person centred therapy into my therapy with clients.

For couples I use Behavioural Couples Therapy enhanced with Transactional Analysis and Person Centred therapy.

I also offer supervision to trainees who are on the journey towards qualification and accreditation as mental health practitioners. I do this on an individual basis and in group format.

I am open to conducting some sessions over SKYPE if necessary.

Further information

Many people face inter-cultural issues in their relationships. I am widely experienced in dealing with these.

I also use the findings of positive psychology to find greater fulfilment despite the obstacles they face in life. I encourage people to find the wellsprings of joy within themselves, and to learn to get into ‘flow’, which is described by the originator of the concept as a state of ecstasy.

If appropriate and sought for, I will explore spiritual issues with my clients. If you are an atheist, agnostic or not inclined towards spirituality of any sort I will be sensitive to your beliefs and work within your particular framework.
