I am a Clinical psychologist and accredited CBT therapist (BABCP) with 7 years of post-qualification experience. I have extensive experience in the assessment and treatment of a range of mental health problems with an adult population, having worked in primary care within the NHS and in private practice.
I work mostly from a Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) approach, drawing also on Mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Equipping you to be your own therapist, learning to identify the unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaviour that lead to emotional distress and stuckness, helping you identify and move in the direction of your values.
I work both in English and Spanish in Central London.
