I'm a Principal Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist, fully accredited as both a Therapist and Supervisor with the British Association for Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP). I'm also a Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) Teacher, and soon I'll also be a qualified Mindful Self-Compassion Teacher too.
I've been practicing CBT for a decade and have spent most of my time working in the NHS as a Senior Therapist and Manager, and now as a Deputy Clinical Lead for a mental health service called IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies). I have supervised many trainee, qualified and Senior CBT Therapists.
I have a 3 year Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology - and got to write my dissertation on OCD under the supervision of Professor Mark Freeston. And then there's my 2 year Post-Graduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Plus an extra 2 year Post-Graduate Diploma in CBT for Children & Young People.
I did my Mindfulness Teacher Training with the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice, and I've also completed two further specialist mindfulness trainings at the University of Oxford Mindfulness Centre. And last but not least I've also completed trainings in Compassion Focused Therapy and Group Therapy, and I'm currently training in Mindful Self-Compassion at The Center for MSC.
As a CBT Therapist I'm highly trained to work with clients experiencing anxiety, depression and PTSD. I'm particularly skilled in helping clients struggling with Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder and Body Dysmorphic Disorder. And my area of specialism is working with clients experiencing Perfectionism, Low Self-Esteem and Anxiety.
I offer a limited number of spaces for supervisees, and provide flexible supervision arrangements via Zoom to meet your needs.
