I am a chartered counselling psychologist with 15 years working experience in the NHS. I am a registered practitioner psychologist with the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPS) and the British Psychological Society (BPS). I am a member of the Faculty of Perinatal Psychology (BPS). I have worked in a range of services in the NHS including an eating disorders service, community mental health and primary care. I am currently working in a perinatal mental health team. I provide supervision for psychologists, CBT therapists and trainees.
I have worked with a wide range of difficulties, including depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, stress, eating disorders, PTSD, childhood trauma, relationship difficulties and adjustment and loss. I have a special interest in perinatal mental health and working with the transition to parenthood. This includes a particular interest in attachment, early development and the parent/infant relationship.
I have a strong commitment to the potential of the therapeutic relationship and the value of the warm, safe and supportive space that it can offer. I take an individualised approach, working in a flexible way to meet the needs and goals of my clients.
I have trained in a number of therapeutic models including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT) and have received specialist additional training in Mindfulness, Compassion Focused Treatment (CFT) and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT).
I see clients online and in my consulting rooms in East Dulwich.
