My Experience

I am a London based Clinical Psychologist who see adults and children experiencing a wide range of neurodevelopmental conditions and psychological difficulties such as anxiety and low mood.

I completed my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at University College London (UCL) in 2014 and have had 18 years of experience working in the NHS. I am also an Associate Clinical Tutor and guest lecturer at the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology training programme at UCL.

I currently hold a Senior Clinical Psychologist role in a NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service and have held various leadership roles which includes offering consultations to other agencies (e.g. schools, social care), developing Autism assessment pathways and psychological treatment pathways as well as offering supervision and line management to junior psychologists and therapists.

I can offer assessments and treatment for difficulties such as:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Parenting difficulties
  • Improving parent-child relationship
  • Behaviour problems
  • Low mood and depression
  • Anxiety including phobias, social anxiety, health anxiety, panic
  • Stress
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Low self-esteem
  • Anger
  • Perfectionism
  • Trauma/ Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Adjustment to health conditions

My values

It is important to me that the therapy I offer provide a safe and non-judgmental space for my clients to feel heard and understood. Guided by evidence-based practice, I commit to working collaboratively with individuals, couples and/ or families to address their concerns and work towards bringing life changes that are meaningful for them in a focused and timely manner.

The models I work with

I am particularly interested in delivering effective and evidence-based short-term interventions and parenting work. I tailor my approach to help my clients develop a personalised treatment plan, drawing on a wide range of therapeutic approaches which I completed advanced trainings on in addition to my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology training, such as:

• Cognitive-behavioural Therapy (CBT) – BABCP accredited CBT psychotherapist
• Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
• Compassion-focused Therapy (CFT)
• Mentalization-based Therapy (MBT)
• Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) Skills
• Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET)
• Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR)
• Narrative Therapy
• Mindfulness
• Comprehensive Behavioural Intervention for Tics (CBiT)

Parenting approaches:
• The Incredible Years
• Solihull Approach
• Personalised Individual Parent Training (PIPT), also known as “Parent-Child Game”
• Mindful parenting
• Circle of Security
• Video Interaction guidance (VIG)
• Parent-infant psychotherapy (PIP)
