I am a Doctor of Counselling Psychology and accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with over 15 years of clinical experience. I have worked in primary and secondary care psychology services with clients with depression, relational and emotion regulation difficulties and a range of anxiety disorders including OCD, PTSD, Panic, Social Anxiety, Habit Disorders (such as hair pulling), Health Anxiety and General Anxiety Disorder. My current NHS role is in a specialist trauma service where I work with clients, including refugees, with complex PTSD, many of whom have experienced multiple traumas including childhood neglect and abuse.
I have trained in a number of therapeutic models including CBT, EMDR, Mindfulness and psychodynamic approaches. This means that I am able to adapt therapy to meet individual clients’ needs by integrating different models and therapeutic techniques.
I work in a collaborative way which prioritises the therapeutic relationship and aim to offer a safe and supportive space within which a client and I may develop a shared understanding of their current difficulties and work together towards therapy goals. I offer supervision to qualified and trainee psychologists and CBT therapists.
I see clients in my consulting rooms in East Dulwich.
