About me

Low mood, anxious or stressed? Need someone to talk to? I am a Psychologist trained to help you through your problems.

I have over 10 years experience working as a Clinical Psychologist in the NHS, and in private practice in London. I work clinically using structured, time-limited evidence based approaches to help you deal with your difficulties.

Therapy starts with a comprehensive assessment to build a collaborative, shared understanding of your difficulties. Then together, a tailor-made treatment plan is developed to suit your needs, that is grounded in evidence-based psychological theory and practice.

I view each patient as an individual and will use three models – Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Systemic Therapy and Psychodynamic Therapy, in an integrative way to meet the needs of patients.

Progress is regularly reviewed in therapy, to ensure that patients are heading towards recovery.

Please feel free to call me for an informal chat, to see whether I can help you with your difficulties.
