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.
