About me

I specialise in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for a range of difficulties including anxiety and depressive disorders. I am able to support you with other areas of difficulty you may be experiencing. I offer a safe, supportive place for you to explore and develop an understanding of your difficulties. My aim is for you to be able to leave therapy with the insights and skills you need to live your life to the full.

I am qualified with an MSC in CREBT at Goldsmiths College, London and a PG Diploma in CBT at the Institute of Psychiatry, London. I am a qualified Mindfulness Teacher, after studying at Oxford Mindfulness Centre. BABCP accredited. I have worked at a leading Private Hospital, NHS and voluntary sector.

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.
