About me

I am a highly experienced Clinical Psychologist, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and a Chartered member of the British Psychological Society (BPS).
I have worked for the NHS since 1999 as a qualified Clinical Psychologist, within a London specialist service for people with severe mental health difficulties. I have gained a wealth of experience working with the complex needs of service users, from the ages of 19 years to their early 60s, in a wide range of care settings. Forming a trusting relationship with individuals who have experienced trauma in their early life is paramount and a particular skill I have as a therapist.

You may be asking yourself why seeing a Clinical Psychologist may be the best way forward for you. I believe that we are highly skilled and trained professionals who are able to work with a full spectrum of psychological difficulties, ranging from the very common (such as anxiety and depression) to the less common (psychosis). There is extensive evidence that psychological therapies are beneficial for mental health difficulties. Clinical psychology aims to reduce psychological distress and to enhance the promotion of psychological well-being, via the use of evidence based psychological approaches.

Relapse prevention work such that once recovery from a mental health difficulty has occurred, the risk of re-experiencing an difficulties is reduced.
