I specialise in problems with anxiety, depression, compulsions, OCD, work-related stress, relationships, anger management, insomnia, phobias, self-confidence and motivation.

My approach is based in the tradition of cognitive behavioural counselling and psychotherapy (or CBT), providing a supportive and focused framework for you to change how you feel, think and act in response to problems and challenges.

I'm based in Hampstead/West Hampstead NW3 and also offer sessions via Skype, Zoom or phone. For more details, please call me on 07956 283 702, email me at or visit my website at

  • Qualifications & Experience
    I trained at King's College London University and at The College of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies London. I hold a BA (Hons) in Philosophy, a Certificate in Counselling and three postgraduate diplomas in CBT: a Diploma and Advanced Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Counselling and Psychotherapy, and an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Cognitive Behavioural Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am DBS certified.

    The types of CBT that I specialise in are: Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy (REBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Therapy (CT) and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (MBCBT).

    These approaches are practical and evidence-based, meaning that they have been extensively researched, tested and shown to be very effective, usually in a short period of time.

    I work by integrating these approaches in ways that will suit your individual needs and preferences.
