I offer individual Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy (CBT) for Children, Adolescents and Adults who may be struggling with their day to day activities as a result of feeling low; anxious or stressed.
I am experienced in treating a number of mental health difficulties such as:
Depressive Disorders; Social Anxiety; Generalised Anxiety; Obsessive Compulsive Disorders; Stress; Low Self Esteem; Sleep Difficulties; Phobias; Behavioural Difficulties in Children; Anger Management; Post-traumatic Stress Disorder; and can also provide Mindfulness Skills Training.
I also offer parents a space to help them build their skills in managing their children's emotional distress.
My therapy room is based in Amersham. However, at present I am only seeing individuals remotely via skype. Please contact me for full details.
If you are a trainee or qualified cognitive behavioural psychotherapist, as a fully accredited member of the BABCP, I offer clinical supervision either face to face, online or over the telephone.
Training, qualifications & experience
I graduated from the University of Southampton with an honours degree in Applied Social Sciences (Psychological Studies). It was through this that I chose to focus my learning and development on Psychology. I went on to complete a Post Graduate Certificate in Psychology and MSc in Child Development at the University of London.
Having researched CBT and it's efficacy in treating both adolescents and adults for a wide range of difficulties, I decided this would be the therapeutic approach that would fulfil my goal in treating individuals suffering from mental health difficulties.
I went on to complete a Post Graduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy and am currently on the register of accredited CBT therapists with the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).
My previous work experience includes working for 5 years as a CBT therapist at The Priory Hospital North London, treating both inpatients and outpatients with anxiety disorders; depressive disorders; PTSD; psychosis; and eating disorders.
Since 2017, I have worked at The Priory Oxford Wellbeing Centre treating outpatients from the age of 10 years and upwards. Alongside this work I manage my own private clinical practice treating children, adolescents and adults in a therapy room in Amersham.
I am also able to offer both group based work and 1:1 work within schools covering the treatments outlined on the home page as well as offering workshops for teachers on requested topics relating to the emotional well-being of their pupils.
Additionally, if you are a practicing cognitive behavioural psychotherapist or trainee, as a fully accredited member of the BABCP, I am able to offer clinical supervision face to face, online or over the telephone.
With continuing professional development my practice includes the most up to date evidenced therapeutic approaches.
