I am an experienced consultant clinical psychologist and CBT therapist. Having worked in the NHS for 17 years, I am now offering that experience in private practice. I use evidence-based methods, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for a wide range of mental health issues. I also use EMDR for the treatment of trauma, and Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT) for addressing issues of guilt, shame and self-criticism. I offer treatment for anxiety disorders, depression, OCD, PTSD, low self-esteem, social anxiety, health anxiety, bipolar disorder and work-related stress.
In the first session we will talk about your difficulties, your background, and your objectives. Together we can understand where you are and where you'd like to be, and develop your tailored therapy plan.
I have a warm, non-judgmental and practical approach. Whether this is your first experience with therapy or a new moment in an ongoing process, I trust that I will make you feel welcome, relaxed and empowered on your road back to good mental health.
I abide by the professional and ethical standards of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the British Psychological Society. I am an accredited BABCP CBT therapist. I have full indemnity and current DBS clearance.
