About me

I am the founder of the North London Psychologists' Clinic. I am an experienced Chartered Counselling Psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and a registered Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

I hold my private practice in Stanmore/Bushey Heath where I offer a relaxed, compassionate, non-judgmental and confidential space. Therapy provides a safe, containing, trustworthy space where I can help you unravel the source of your distress and where we can collaboratively explore means to alleviate it and improve your emotional well-being.

As a Counselling Psychologist, I am a scientist-practitioner and combine both evidence-based as well as practice-based research. I abide with the latest code of ethics, performance and conduct put forth by both the BPS (2009) and the HCPC (2016).
My practice is also informed by the most recent evidence-based guidelines devised by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

I have extensive clinical experience and spent many years working in various NHS settings including: GP surgeries and Specialists Clinical Health Services (Pain Management, Community Eating Disorders, Bariatric Psychology and HIV and Sexual Health). I have also worked in the private sector for the Priory Hospital and an Independent Private Practice specialising in the treatment of Eating Disorders, Obesity and Body Image Problems.

I share the belief that it is the therapeutic relationship which is the driving force and determinant of any foreseeable change that would lead to amelioration in your daily functioning.

I work as an integrative psychologist and have been trained in Person-Centred/Humanistic therapy, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamic Therapy. I am mostly drawn to Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), “Third Wave” contextual therapies such as Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT).

I am a full member of the Division of Counselling Psychology of the BPS, as well as a member of the Faculty of Clinical Health Psychology and of the Association for Contextual Behavioural Science (ACBS). I am accredited in Psychometric level A (ability testing) and B (occupational personality testing) and am on the Register of Qualification in Test Use (RQTU).

Psychological therapy can help you address and overcome your own inner struggles and enable you to move forward in your life. Whether you live with a chronic pain condition, are preparing for bariatric surgery, have a tormented relationship with food, therapy can give you the tools, skills, self-awareness and space to explore how to implement meaningful and lasting change.

Coming to therapy and making that first step can be quite a daunting experience and evoke a range of feelings, which is completely normal and part of the journey. The first step is fostering awareness that as human beings we are all imperfect beings and that being vulnerable in the presence of another person is not a sign of weakness but on the contrary a great sign of courage and strength that will pave the road towards greater self-acceptance.
