My Profesional Story

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

I am an accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with additional doctoral training in counselling and psychotherapy. Due to my integrative training, I am able to work with a number of approaches depending on people’s needs and I am committed to offering a high standard of professional therapeutic care. Having worked in the UK and abroad in both private and public settings for over 15 years, I have an in-depth understanding of how the NHS and local mental health services work.

I provide psychotherapy and counselling services in Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding areas.  I am an accredited member of the BABCP and about to complete a professional doctorate in Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy.

My therapeutic modality is primarily Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. However, my grounding in Existential, Systemic and Psychodynamic approaches allows me to be an eclectic  therapist and offers me flexibility in tailoring my interventions to meet the individual needs of each client.

I have extensive experience in a wide range of mental problems including depression, panic disorder & agoraphobia,  generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), social anxiety, specific phobias (e.g. blood, needles, vomiting, spiders), health anxiety (also known as hypochondriasis), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD),  body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), disordered eating, addictions, stress (work and life related), lack of confidence and self-esteem, anger management, bullying,  work and life transitions, spiritual issues, loss and bereavement, relationship problems, expatriate adjustment and cultural issues and personal growth.

I have specialist interests in  trauma,  shame and self-criticism,  as well as psychological adjustment to long term medical conditions.
