With over 20 years of experience, I am passionate about tailoring evidence-based psychological interventions, so clients reach their best hopes in a relatively short space of time. Whilst providing a safe and contained space, I aim for clients to gain a marked sense of well-being and increased ease in their lives. When necessary, I offer diagnostic neuropsychometric assessment that can help with the management of autism, dyslexia and other related neurological conditions, including brain injury and memory loss.

Daksha is a Clinical Executive at CPG. She is a Chartered Clinical Psychologist and an Associate Clinical Tutor at the Royal Holloway Clinical Doctorate Programme.

Given her diverse clinical expertise she regularly works with clients who present with anxiety, depression, burnout, sleep problems, phobias, eating disorders, trauma, bereavement and personality challenges. With her background in health psychology she is able to work with clients who present with chronic pain and other health-related conditions. When required her neuropsychological assessments extend to the diagnosis of all neuropsychological conditions across the age range, from autistic spectrum disorder, dyslexia, dyspraxia and head injuries to dementia.
