About me and my therapy practice

I have extensive experience working in the mental health sector, across a wide variety of issues, such as feeling anxious, depressed, angry or a combination of emotions and conditions.

 Do you find yourself worrying too much, overthinking or have you adopted unhealthy behavioural patterns, such as addictions or compulsions? Lockdown has affected many people in these ways and people have been under enormous pressure in different ways, such as home-schooling, or having to work from home or online. It’s not surprising mental health problems are on the rise. The good news is that integrative CBT can help with all these things.

If you think you may need help because life has been getting you down for some time now, or you are experiencing other mental disturbances, such as intrusive thoughts, panic attacks or anything that is holding you back from having a good quality of life then I urge you to make an appointment for a free 10-minute telephone assessment with me. The main recurring thing I hear from clients is that they wished they’d picked up the phone earlier, don’t let that person be you. Make an appointment and you’ll soon know if CBT counselling is for you.

Practice description

I mainly work online, using Zoom, but I have availability for local clients in and around Beaconsfield. Sessions are a clinical hour, i.e. 50 minutes and there will be some homework for you to undertake between sessions, as research shows that therapy works quicker when homework is given and done. This forms the beginning of the Agenda at each session, including if it's not been done, which leads to further inquiry, in a positive space.

As well as running a private practice I have worked for The Priory and AnxietyUK. I am committed to helping people from whatever walk of life and aim to be flexible in my approach, always with the client's best interests at heart.

Building rapport and having a good working alliance are key to successful outcomes in therapy. It's a combined effort and I have successfully helped people with a variety of conditions, such as Depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, Panic attacks, Fear of Driving on Motorways, Fear of Injections (Trypanophobia), Agoraphobia, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), as well as others (not everything fits into a neat box).

My first session

The first session is the assessment, where you tell me what has been going on and why you are coming to therapy now. Whilst we will discuss your past, i.e. childhood, this will inform therapy, we will not linger there, we will be investigating what has been going on recently to bring you to therapy in the here and now.

We will work together on the assessment, to ensure I am clear on what you are trying to impart. Whilst most of the background story will come out in the first session, I find that it usually gets built on in the following weeks, as more trust is built and you feel more comfortable sharing your story.

We will do an assessment on Anxiety and Depression scales to create a baseline assessment and over the following weeks will check in to see how this is changing.
