About me

I run a private practice for adults in Central London offering evidence-based therapy for a range of psychological difficulties. I qualified as a Clinical Psychologist in 2002 and subsequently completed advanced training to become an Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. I worked in the NHS for 18 years. In 2009 I was appointed Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Head of Clinical Health Psychology at Chelsea & Westminster Hospital. I am experienced at working with individuals with a wide range of psychological difficulties. I have particular expertise in working with people who have physical health difficulties that affect their emotional wellbeing. In recent years I have specialised in working with people with eating and weight issues (including bariatric surgery). I have written many research papers and a CBT self-help book for people having bariatric surgery .
