About Me

I am a London based Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist (BABCP accredited) with 7 years experience of working with depression and anxiety disorders within the NHS and privately. I’m also a Yoga Therapist for Mental Health, speaker, lecturer and researcher.


I have academic experience of psychology and neuroscience - including formal study at the Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College London and UCL – and continue to remain current with both fields. 


My academic interest in stress and its effects on health, combined with my experience and knowledge of psychotherapy, yoga and mindfulness and how these approaches can improve mental health equips me with a versatile approach to address a diverse range of group and individual needs. 


We all get stressed from time to time - in fact research shows that in England, in any given week, 1 in 6 people report experiencing a common mental health problem such as anxiety or depression. Many people report that they worry constantly or much of the time, leading to sleepless nights and unhealthy coping habits.


I work with a variety of difficulties ranging from specific disorders to more general life challenges. These may include:

  • Depression

  • Generalised Anxiety Disorder

  • Panic Attacks / Panic Disorder

  • Social Anxiety

  • Health Anxiety

  • Phobias of specific situations or objects

  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

  • Low Self-Esteem

  • Low Confidence

  • Day to day worry

  • Stress related to exams / work / family / health conditions

  • Self Criticism

  • Perfectionism

  • Procrastination

  • Fear of Public Speaking

  • Sleep Problems
