How I work
I use cognitive behavioural therapy, or CBT, to help people identify the unhelpful behaviours and thoughts that maintain the problem and prevent them from moving forward. My therapy is a collaborative and transparent process in which I work with the client to help them find the answers to their problem. I believe that by the end of treatment a person should be equipped with the skills to act as their own therapist and manage whatever setbacks they may encounter.
I have over ten years experience helping people to overcome problems with depression and anxiety. In addition to my private practice, I currently work for the NHS as Cognitive Behavioural Therapist.
As part of my role, I work in GP surgeries in Westminster where I see patients individually and in groups. I run workshops on managing low self-esteem, procrastination, panic attacks and building confidence.
I also offer clincial supervision and provide training both in-house and at UCL University.
I trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at one of London's leading psychology departments, Royal Holloway University of London. I maintain up to date knowledge and skills within the field by regularly attending training and supervision in line with requirements for accreditation.
As a private therapist I offer individual CBT for the following problems:
Low Self Esteem
Perinatal Natal Anxiety and Depression
Work/ Exam Stress
Worry and Panic Attacks
Overcoming Procrastination and Worry
It is easy to put off important tasks when we are feeling anxious or low in mood. However, in the long term this can prevent us from moving forward and makes us feel more stressed.
This twelve week course helps people identify the unhelpful thoughts and feelings underlying procrastination, and teaches skills taken from CBT to help break this cycle.
Improving Self Esteem
Having a negative view of ones self can have a huge impact on our confidence. If can affect our relationships, careers, and general wellbeing.
This course teaches skills in managing the low mood and anxiety that stems from, and maintains, low self esteem. It then focusses on building up a more balanced view of the self using CBT.
