I use approaches and techniques that are known to work, intelligently adapted to suit your needs. I help people make changes in their lives, such as feeling motivated to, and able to enjoy, work, socialising and relationships.
My therapeutic practice has been developed over 7 years of training and 12 years of experience:
Qualifications and Training
Theology & Religious Studies, MA (Cantab). University of Cambridge (2i).
Psychology of Religion, MPhil. University of Cambridge (Pass).
Psychology, PGDip. University of East London (Distinction).
Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, PsychD. University of Surrey (Pass, No Corrections).
Specialist Diploma in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, PGDip. Royal Holloway, University of London (Distinction).
I keep my professional knowledge up-to-date by undertaking ongoing training. As part of this, I attend workshops by world CBT experts such as Dr Christine Padesky, Dr Fiona Challacombe, and CFT experts such as Dr Deborah Lee, Professor Paul Gilbert and Dr Chris Irons.
I have worked as a therapist, seeing patients with a range of difficulties, in the NHS for over 11 years. My final post was in a busy South London service, the specialist Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma.
I work closely with leaders in the field, who have developed the treatment approaches themselves, so you can be confident in the fidelity of the therapy you will receive.
Research and Teaching
I have taught, and facilitated workshops, in a number of settings, including a sell-out British Psychological Society Event ‘Psychology For All’ workshop on Low Self-Esteem. I continue to supervise and teach for the Mental Health Studies MSc at King’s and at my NHS Trust's "Recovery College".
