About me

About Me

So far 10 years of 16 years professional experience has been to work with people from all walks of life both in the NHS and in private practice, who are struggling with anxiety, depression, work-related stress, post-traumatic stress disorder, personal injury claims, domestic abuse, anger management, divorce, relationship issues, women’s issues, redundancy etc.

Additionally I have worked for 10 years with people whose mental health care needs co-occur with alcohol and drug use. I am also a BPS accredited trainee group supervisor for a charitable organization which is a position I have occupied for 3 years and I have occupied the post of CBT Consultant on behalf of Harley Therapy, in their rooms in Bishopsgate and West London for 3 years.

I am an integratively trained chartered counselling psychologist and UKCP accredited existential psychotherapist. This means that as a clinically trained psychologist I can assess any current psychological difficulties you may feel concerned about and together we can formulate a plan that can help you meet your aims and goals for counselling.

Then using existential philosophy and phenomenology as a framework for identifying how you perceive your world and how you might like to adapt to meet different situations, work flexibly with cognitive behavioural therapy, psychodynamics and humanistic thinking.

As you begin to access new ways of experiencing how you think and act, simultaneously new more positive experiences of responding to different situations can help re-pattern the past. In turn as old views and attitudes respond to new experiences, you will begin to create new opportunities for choice, decision and action.

This develops from how increased self awareness and understanding can help to uncover a sometimes wide range of symptoms that have maintained those emotional and behavioural difficulties that are now presenting themselves in everyday life.

So whilst I come from my training in existential philosophy and phenomenology and an experiential background that aims to help my clients articulate strong feelings and emotions and how to manage them, as a psychologist by tailoring a treatment plan to meet individual needs we can work together to keep pace with the ebb and flow of shifting thoughts and attitudes as mistaken assumptions and perceptual errors adapt to meet new more meaningful ways of seeing things.
