About me

In the current world that we live in, it can be hard at times to feel ‘ok’ and take that first step to seek help. By my empathic and compassionate manner, I aim to create a safe environment for people to reflect on the difficulties that have bought them to therapy. I have a passion for creatively and collaboratively working with my clients (and can offer both short and longer term therapy), to support them in finding effective and healthy ways to move forward with their lives - using both their strength and resilience.

I have over 10 years’ experience working with individuals with diverse physical, mental and personality difficulties in a variety of clinical and research contexts in the UK (both inpatient, community and research settings). Within the NHS, I currently work as a Senior Clinical Psychologist at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust with adults experiencing complex and often enduring mental health difficulties. I provide training and supports NHS staff teams working in highly pressured environments (particularly during this time period) and supervise Psychologists in Clinical Training.

I have experience delivering high-quality, evidence-based therapy for people across a range of age groups and emotional and psychological difficulties. Common difficulties that I treat include; low-self-esteem; depression; anxiety; emotional regulation problems; trauma; sleep problems, stress management and burn out and dissociative and psychotic experiences.  I specialise in providing Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) which I apply to a range of disorders. Furthermore, I am trained in mindfulness-based approaches, Compassionate Focused Therapy (CFT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and have experience using Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT).

Please call or email me if you would like an appointment. I offer a free brief chat with you over the phone prior to starting therapy to talk through the options available.

Due to the current pandemic, I am only offering online sessions.

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.
