I am a Doctor of Clinical Psychology and the Director of Circle Psychology Partners. I am passionate about working with people to help alleviate distress and live a more meaningful life. I believe that compassion, openness, practicality, and sense of humour form the cornerstones of successful therapy.
My specialism is in providing individual therapy for adults with a particular focus on addressing shame, perfectionism, life transitions and low mood. My main therapeutic approaches are Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). I am particularly passionate about working from a compassion focused perspective. My initial assessment aims to reach a shared understanding with the client to inform an individualised treatment plan. I have a warm, empathic and down to earth style. I aim to support and empower my clients to achieve their goals and overcome difficulties.
I have worked as a psychologist since 2008 and in private practice Dulwich Psychologist since 2013. I am extremely proud of our growing team of exceptional psychologists who have been working with me at Circle Psychology Partners since 2017. Together we offer wide ranging services for individuals, families and couples empowering them to be the best versions of themselves.
I am registered as a practitioner psychologist with the Health Professions Council (HCPC). I have worked in a wide range of services in the NHS, including Improving Access to Psychological Services, Sexual and Reproductive Health Services, Oncology and Palliative Care, Psychology and Health Service. I abide by the standards of the HCPC and the code of ethics and practice of the BPS. I am committed to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and I undergo regular training to keep my skills up-to-date. In addition to my private work, I provide supervision and training events for psychologists who wish to learn more about CFT as a therapeutic modality.
I see clients online as well as in my consulting rooms in Dulwich Village.
