About me and my therapy practice

As a psychological therapist for some years now, I am an experienced practitioner. I am empathetic, and able to take a collaborative approach to helping a person manage their difficulties. I realize how important it is to get the right help when you need it. 

For many years, I have been working with individuals who have common (mild to moderate) and severe mental health difficulties. I have worked within the third sector, and still work for the NHS as a CBT therapist, as well as a couple’s therapist, specifically helpful when when one or both of the couple struggles with depression. 

It’s a huge step to decide to have therapy, and if you’re on this site, then you are already part way there to getting the help you deserve. I offer no judgement or negativity as a therapist and have a huge respect for you for getting the support needed.

My practice is not only built on experience, but on safety and trust and inclusivity. I have experience of working with the BAME and LGBTQ plus communities, and any community that regards themselves as being marginalized. 

I offer a space where you can feel understood and accepted and together, we can find a way forward.

I work exclusively on video call and telephone, which offers you the comfort of having your therapeutic experience in the comfort of your own surroundings.

I am a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapists (BABCP), Person Centered Counsellor (BACP), Trauma Informed Therapist  and Couples Therapist (CTfD) Tavistock Relationship Centre Practitioner.
