Clinical Psychologist

London Clinic

My Experience

I have worked in the NHS for over 9 years supporting adults of all ages and adolescents to explore and develop their psychological wellbeing.

I have experience working in a range of settings and with a broad range of difficulties such as, anxiety, stress, depression, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, OCD, bereavement and early life traumas.

In my current role in the NHS, I work in a primary care service supporting people to overcome mild to moderate anxiety and depression and I have a specialist interest in supporting parents with difficulties in relation to conception, pregnancy, birth and beyond.

My Values

I value the importance of the therapeutic relationship and focus on creating a warm, safe and trusting environment where people are able to explore their difficulties and feel supported. My aim is to help people develop an understanding of their difficulties in a way that generates new perspectives and possibilities for change that feel personal and meaningful. I have respect for people’s individuality and always aim to work collaboratively to help people build on their own unique strengths and resources.

The models I work with

In my therapeutic work, I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic therapy, Mindfulness, Behavioural Activation, Schema therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT) and Systemic therapy to inform my approach. The model that we choose to work with together will depend on what you are hoping to gain from therapy and the type of difficulties you are experiencing. I always aim to provide a tailored approach and I can work flexibly to either use models in their ‘pure’ form or to integrate different models and techniques, depending on a person’s individual needs.
