About me

I am a BABCP (British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists) accredited cognitive behavioural therapist who offers Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for a wide range of psychological problems such as anxiety, depression, low self esteem and stress in the NHS and in private practice.

I am a senior CBT therapist working in the NHS. My role includes providing individual CBT to clients who suffer from depression and anxiety, and providing clinical supervision and line management to CBT therapists and trainees. In addition, I lead the long term health conditions team in the service, which we provide CBT to clients who suffer from depression and anxiety that associates with long term health conditions.

My other experiences include:
-Having been a committee member of the BABCP Compassion Interest Group (SIG).

-I was a senior Occupational Therapist in the mental health services (NHS) for almost 10 years before I became a CBT therapist. My clinical experience included working with both in-patients and out-patients to help them regaining skills and confidence to restart their activities of daily living. My clinical role also included clients facing role, providing supervision to junior occupational therapists and students.
-I have been invited to international companies to give presentations on CBT in my private work.

Other information about me:
-I completed the CBT training at the Royal Holloway University and later completed further CBT training at the Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London. These trainings were steeped in the evidence based CBT models, meaning these models have research evidence to support that they are effective treatments for people who suffer from anxiety and mood difficulties.

-I am bilingual. I speak fluent English and Chinese (Cantonese) so I can conduct therapy in both languages.

-I receive regular supervision and undertake CPD to maintain my professional registration.
