I am a Clinical Psychologist available for face to face appointments in Marylebone as well as Telephone and Online Counselling Sessions. Should you wish to book online with myself or any of my colleagues then please go to http://booking.thebritishcbtcounsellingservice.com/ for a Live Online Diary.

I work with adults, children, families and couples and use a range
of therapies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) (including Third Wave approaches; Acceptance and Commitment Therapy {ACT}, Mindfulness and Compassionate Focused Therapy), Psychodynamic Therapy and Schema Therapy. I create an individualised treatment programme for each of my patients based on what they need and feel comfortable and taking into consideration what is proven to bring the fastest and most long lasting relief for their particular difficulty.

My Philosophy

With the ever–increasing pressures in daily life, it is no surprise that we feel under pressure.  When faced with difficult situations or transitions in our work or private life, we often feel as though we should be able to handle these situations, seeing the need for support as a sign of weakness.  This can ultimately lead to a sense of overwhelm, stress, anxiety, low mood, depression, anger, jealousy and any other naturally occurring negative emotions.  Over time, this can cause a decrease in self-esteem, confidence, and motivation that then feeds into negative patterns of thinking, feelings and behaviours.  Therapy provides professional support and an opportunity to explore these difficulties in a safe and therapeutic space.  It provides a space to process and deal with the areas of life that bring painful and negative thoughts and feelings, allowing to work towards acceptance, increased hope and a more positive mind-set.

My Approach

I base my therapy on the view that the therapeutic relationship is of most importance.  Providing a non-judgemental, confidential and safe place where you are able to confide and share openly with support.

The process of therapy will begin with initially discussing the current difficulties and reasons for seeking additional support.  We will further explore past experiences in order to gain a better understanding of you as a whole.  We will work together to discuss goals for therapy, ensuring that the therapeutic process is a collaborative one.

I tailor my therapeutic approach in order to suit the individual and their needs, as different approaches will work for different people.  I draw from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) as well as third wave approaches, including mindfulness, and compassion-focused approaches.  I have frequently used a more integrative approach when needed to suit the needs of the individual.

My Motivation

I am driven by the recognition that we sustain psychological injuries even more often than we do physical ones, injuries like failure or rejection or loneliness. They can also get worse if we ignore them, and impact our lives in dramatic ways. And yet, even though there are scientifically proven techniques we could use to treat these kinds of psychological injuries, we often belittle them. I strive for the recognition that mental health is as important and life changing as physical health. I maintain my enthusiasm for my profession when I see this recognition in my clients, and when we both experience relief at finally feeling heard and understood. Above all, I feel grateful for the opportunity to contribute to people’s wellbeing.

A Little About Me

I am passionate in helping others to overcome obstacles, allowing for a richer and more fulfilling life.  I feel privileged to be able to meet and work collaboratively with the people that seek support and humbled to be able to join them on their journey of self-discovery.

Health Insurance

Most national and international Private Healthcare companies are accepted including (but not limited to):

  • Bupa
  • Axa
  • Cigna
  • Pru Health
  • Aviva
  • Simply Health
  • WPA
  • and more…

It may be possible to use your private health insurance to cover the cost or part of the cost of your appointments. Each healthcare provider (Bupa, Axa, Aviva, Cigna etc) have slightly different policies but most of them are happy for you to approach us directly in the first instance.

Axa require a referral from a Psychiatrist in order to access your policy and we are happy to help arrange this with you.

Bupa require a referral from your GP in order to access your policy. GP’s are often happy to provide a referral following a phone consultation instead of a traditional face to face appointment in the surgery as it is more time efficient.

With the above a quick call to your healthcare provider should allow them clarify these details.

It is worth noting that not all policies will cover the full cost of your treatment. We will advise you of the availability of healthcare appointments, and any cost implications in your initial enquiry.

Some healthcare providers have fees which are different to our self funding rates detailed above. If these are less than our own rate we have to ask that the shortfall is made up by the patient. Please just remember to tell us who your provider is as soon as possible to avoid any confusion when booking.

Further information

“I initially only agreed to couples counselling so my wife couldn’t accuse me of not trying but I have been pleasantly surprised by how it has helped us. Our psychologist didn’t take sides, didn’t judge and was able to identify what the problem was and help us to work out a solution in a relatively short space of time. I am pleased that we did this and would definitely recommend this service to other couples who are struggling to make things work.”.

– Jonathan (Marylebone)

“For the first few CBT Counselling sessions I actually felt more anxious and thought about giving up, but I’m 10 sessions in now and things are starting to shift. It’s still isn’t plan sailing but I am hopeful that if I keep at it I will get there”.

– Anna (Marylebone)

“I would just like to say a big thank you for everything you have done for me.  When I came into therapy I had no idea in what way it could help, in the past I thought honesty was the answer to all and since I had already achieved that I was unsure how therapy would work for me.  I never thought it would be so, but I honestly believe that having a fuller comprehension of myself has really helped me come to terms, understand and be at peace with myself.  I feel much more grounded and in no way out of control."
