Offering online consultations until further notice. Please visit my website.

I am a Clinical Psychologist and Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist with over 18 years experience working in the NHS with children, young people and their families. I have Chartered Status with the British Psychological Society and am registered with the Health Care Professionals Council. I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Cognitive Therapy and am an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist.

Having worked in a busy Specialist Tier 3 CAMHs service in South West London, I have advanced assessment, formulation and treatment skills . As part of this role I also provided psychological assessment, treatment and advice for Neurodevelopmental disorders such as Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

For the past four years I have specialised in Eating Disorders in Young People with my most recent role being the Team Leader and Lead Therapist of a Community Eating Disorders Team for Children and Young people for the CNWL NHS Trust.

I am highly experienced in the assessment and treatment of a wide range of emotional, behavioural and psychological difficulties affecting children including:  

  • Anxiety (Social Anxiety, Panic, Health Anxiety, Phobias and Worry)
  • Body Image Difficulties
  • Eating Disorders (Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating Disorder) 
  • Low Mood & Depression
  • Low Self Esteem and Confidence 
  • Managing Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Managing Emotions 
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Parenting Support  
  • Perfectionism 

My treatment approach is predominantly Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, but I am flexible in the use of other evidence based treatments and will tailor make the treatment plan to suit the particular needs of the child, young person or family. I am also able to advise parents on parenting in the context of children and adolescents with behaviour problems.  

Alongside private practice, I work as an Honorary Lecturer at UCL and the Anna Freud Centre on the MSc Developmental Psychology and Clinical Practice as the Module Lead for Assessment and Planning Clinical interventions.

I am a trained CYP IAPT CBT Supervisor and have a wealth of experience in offering clinical supervision and training to a variety of health professionals. I have also offered consultation and teaching to several schools and contributed to their PSHE curriculum.

I am registered with all the major health insurance companies and currently offer private consultations at Asana Health, Kingston, within the South West London area.
