I am a fully accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist with the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists (BABCP) and a registered member of the British Psychological Society (BPS). I aim to provide a high-quality service offering professional, comfortable and confidential Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
I have over 16 years experience working in the fields of both mental health and addictions, providing structured evidence-based psychological treatment. Prior to my private psychotherapy practice, I worked for 6 years as a CBT Therapist within NHS Primary Care Mental Health, providing both 1:1 and group sessions of psychological therapy within GP surgeries and other community venues. In addition to my private practice, I currently undertake work for The Priory and I have a specialist interest in working with drug and alcohol addictions.
During my career I have worked in a variety of clinical settings, such as NHS Mental Health Service, Private Sector, Community Drug & Alcohol Teams, Prison Service, Probation, Courts and Youth Justice. I have experience of working with a variety of client groups and different age ranges, from young people to older adults and also of providing both individual and group work sessions.
As a registered CBT practitioner, I am required to adhere to strict standards of practice and professional codes of conduct. For more information on professional codes of conduct, please see the websites of the appropriate professional bodies.
