London, W8

About me

I am a counselling psychologist who works with a variety of difficulties including anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress and eating disorders. I pay particular attention to how people interact socially and express emotions. I treat people in a non-judgemental manner, provide a safe environment that facilitates psychological change, and work collaboratively towards agreed goals.

I am registered with and able to provide psychological therapy through the following insurance companies: Aviva, AXA PPP, PruHealth and WPA.

Enquiries are dealt with confidentially and promptly. I will aim to get back to you within 24 hours.

Training, qualifications & experience

In addition to my private work I am the clinical lead and principal psychologist in an outpatient service in the NHS.

I received my doctorate in psychotherapeutic and counselling psychology from the University of Surrey. I also have a postgraduate diploma in psychology from the University of East London and an MA in classics at the University of Cambridge.

I have done further professional training in cognitive behavioural therapy for eating disorders (CBT-E), interpersonal therapy (IPT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), the Maudsley model of treatment for anorexia (MANTRA), and in cognitive behavioural approaches to psychological trauma and PTSD.

I am registered with the Healthcare Professionals Council and chartered by the British Psychological Society. I am also a member of the BPS Department of Clinical Psychology's Faculty of Eating Disorders.

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.
