A Chartered Clinical Psychologist, with over 20 years’ experience working in mental health services within the NHS.
Based in Northeast London, I offer specialist psychological assessment and intervention with children, adolescents and adults.
My way of working is underpinned by an acknowledgement that the challenges we face in life are significant. Traumas and difficult life experiences may overtime be expressed in a variety of ways and develop into particular mental health struggles.
I take a warm and compassionate approach, knowing that the client’s relationship with their therapist is a vital first step in beginning to share our own stories and experiences. Through the development of a safe space, alongside specific therapeutic techniques, I aim to support clients in moving forward to enhance their life in accordance with their values.
With extensive experience across a range of psychological models, I am able to tailor interventions to develop an individualised approach in order to meet the clients needs. These models include, CBT, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness, Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).
My clinic is based less than a minutes walk from South Woodford tube station on the Central Line.
