I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist working both in the NHS and private sector. In 2002, I was delighted to graduate as a clinical psychologist at the University of East London. Since this time I have worked in a variety of settings, taking up senior positions in both Central and North West London Mental Health Foundation Trust (CNWL) and University College London Hospitals.
I have significant experience in providing psychological therapy to people across the lifespan, with expertise in working with children, adolescents and adults. I make use of a range of evidence-based psychological models, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), family therapy and third wave mindfulness based interventions.
Alongside, my qualifications in clinical psychology I am trained to teach the renowned mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) programme. I have also developed a programme specifically for teenagers and have taught many adolescents to make use of meditational and mind-training techniques to enhance concentration, performance and well-being.
I remain actively involved in research and training. I supervise junior psychologists and runs courses for health care professionals on communication and behaviour change skills.
