I am currently providing therapy and assessments from my consulting room in Cavendish Square (off Harley Street) in London and over Skype.


I have more than twenty years of experience as:


  • a clinical psychologist in the NHS and private practice,

  • a life coach in private practice,

  • a medico-legal expert witness providing neurocognitive assessments for the Courts, and

  • training clinical and counselling psychology postgraduates.


I have worked with a wide range of presentations, from people with complex enduring mental health problems, to those experiencing intense transient crises, to those who simply want more out of life.


I am trained in a wide range of therapeutic approaches, including behavioural therapy, psychodynamic therapies, CBT, humanistic therapies, narrative therapy, personal coaching, and systemic couples and family therapy. I am also a trained neuropsychologist with specialist expertise in medico-legal neurocognitive assessments and assessments for cognitive impairment and the dementias, and neurodiverse conditions.


My clients and colleagues describe me as a highly competent, skilled, experienced, thoughtful clinician, with excellent attention to detail.


I am accredited with the Health and Care Professions Council. I am an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society and registered with the Society’s Divisions of Clinical Psychology and Neuropsychology, and the Special Interest Group in Coaching Psychology. I have also completed the British Psychological Society’s Expert Evidence training.

My Approach

I am motivated by the idea that life is a journey of opportunities and discovery. I am by nature optimistic, enthusiastic, and excited about life - mine and others. I have a deep sense of curiosity about what we do and why. When things aren’t going right, I believe there has to be a better way of doing things.


I view therapy as an art and a science. The science draws on research and evidence for treatment effectiveness. The art enables us to creatively work together to co-author a new, happier narrative about your life and how you define yourself. This may be about resolving intense difficulties, solving everyday problems, or working towards maximising your potential.


Psychological therapy is an opportunity to reflect on your life – your unique history as well as your present circumstances and aspirations for your future. My therapeutic approach explores the meanings and narratives that you hold about your life and how you define yourself. It then facilitates a re-thinking about these and an exploration of happier alternatives.


My approach is integrative and systemic. I like to get a good, shared understanding of you so that together we can draw up an insightful formulation that describes and explains your difficulties. The enables me to integrate different psychological models and approaches to best suit your needs so that we can creatively work together using the most appropriate approach to bring about the desired change.
