I am a BABCP accredited CBT therapist, this is an important distinction because to be accredited with the BABCP, the level of training in CBT is of the highest standards. CBT is a really effective treatment for a wide range of mental health problems including anxiety, depression, OCD, low self-esteem. I'm highly experienced in treating eating disorders and body image concerns and I work with both adults and children.
Entering into therapy can be a daunting prospect, my aim is to help you feel at ease and in control at each stage of the process. I can fit therapy around your life by having video call sessions in the comfort of your own home and around your commitments.
Training, qualifications & experience
I studied Psychology at the University of Hertfordshire, gaining my bachelors degree in 2007. I went on to complete a Master's degree in 2009 at London Metropolitan University and then did my Diploma in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy again at Hertfordshire in 2016.
I have worked in a variety of NHS mental health services since 2008. Including inpatient services, Specialist CAMHS, Community Eating Disorders Services.
I have experience of working with children, adolescents, adults and families.
