I am a warm, committed and motivated therapist who believes passionately in the potential for therapy to help us make the changes we want and need to make in order to live happier and more fulfilled lives. When therapy begins, you and I work out an individual problem map so that we can look together at how your difficulties are maintained and triggered. We then make clear goals together and I keep these in mind at all times so that you get the most out of your sessions.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is the main form of therapy I use as it is so effective particularly for depression, low mood, anxiety problems from panic and social anxiety to health anxiety, OCD, and low self esteem. As a trained Clinical Psychologist though, I am able to draw upon my training in and experience of other therapeutic models (systemic and narrative therapy, solution-focused techniques, and mindfulness) to tailor therapy to your individual needs.

Good therapy should and does get results for people and, as well as facilitating change and growth, it provides you with tools and techniques for your life. It is a great privilege for me to be able to share in this journey cf change with the people whom I work with.

More Info About My Practice

Sessions are normally weekly at least initially but this is flexible and we can work out what would be best suited to your goals in the initial assessment. I do quite a lot of telephone and Skype sessions with people outside the UK and these work very well. I am a registered provider with most of the well known insurance companies (AXA, Aviva, etc) and I'm happy to register with your provider if you have insurance with a smaller company I am not yet with.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I specialise in treating depression/low mood and anxiety problems/disorders, predominantly use CBT as this is the evidence-based treatment for these problems. I have worked in a world renowned specialist unit for anxiety disorders in London (the Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma at the Maudsley Hospital), treating people with social anxiety, panic, body dysmorphic disorder health anxiety and OCD. I have also treated all of these problems extensively in primary care in the NHS and in my private practice. I also work with low self eesteem, sleep problems, alcohol and drug use problems, family and couples and stress and offer professional coaching too.

Theoretical Influences that Guide My Work

Cognitive Behavioural ideas are my main influence - namely looking at how our thinking patterns and behaviors may be maintaining our problems and how to use different techniques to resolve that. I use what is known as \\\'third wave\\\' CBT ideas too - using techniques such as mindfulness meditation and compassion focused therapy. In addition, I find that motivational interviewing, solution-focused ideas and narrative therapy concepts all help me to ensure the therapy I offer to clients is flexible, helpful and appropriate to their goals.
