How I work

I work using a range of therapeutic modalities, though I primarily practice using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Metacognitive Therapy (MCT) approach. The therapy I offer is time-limited and goal-directed.

I work in a collaborative way with people and try to help them with a range of psychological difficulties, such as depression, anxiety, managing physical health conditions, relationship problems, procrastination, sexual problems, etc. I have worked with people from a broad range of backgrounds, sexualities, and ethnicities over 15 years of work with the NHS.

I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist and Chartered Scientist (British Psychological Society [BPS]), an Associate Fellow of the BPS, a Chartered Scientist (BPS), a Health and Care Professions Council-registered Practitioner Psychologist, a British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies fully accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist, and I am on the BPS Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors.


I am able to treat face-to-face or using FaceTime or Skype. Sometimes, for people with busy working lives, this a convenient option. For others, it is a way of making psychological therapy more accessible  As a wheelchair-user myself, I understand the difficulties that can arise when trying to access psychological therapy.

How many sessions will I need?

This depends on the complexity of your problem(s). However, typically treatment for an anxiety or depressive disorder takes from 6 to 12 sessions (excluding assessment).


Important note


Please note that I only work with adults (18 years plus) and with individuals (I do not offer couple or group therapy). This also applies to the kind of cases for which I can provide clinical supervision.
