Special interest areas
I'm an experienced therapist with excellent skill in many modalities of treatment. I've trained at World-leading institutes including the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience and the national specialist anxiety team Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma. I co-run a private clinic in London with some specialist treatment areas - adult trauma, anxiety and relationships; autism; and young people. My treatment approach is highly developed, and I tailor specific take-away plans each week to make a difference to your symptoms..
I'm a research led clinician and only offer treatment that works - CBT, ACT & EMDR. I make sure that I use a warm, validating style to help you to feel safe. A trusting relationship allows us to work together, and we can begin to break down the issues down in to manageable chunks. We'll start setting clear actionable plans each week that will begin to make things feel easier and lighter. The arc of therapy aims to help in a number of ways - by generating more problem-understanding and self-awareness, encouraging behaviour change that helps, finding workable ways to manage negative thinking. Where its needed we can also process old memories and events using imagery (EMDR) to help you let go of the past where it causes difficulties in the present.
