"I have always been interested in learning about the complexities of the mind and understanding how ineffective ways of responding to our psychological content drive human behaviour and lead to psychological suffering. I believe that learning to respond to our psychological pain and distress in more flexible ways can free us from our suffering and help us live a happier, and a more meaningful and fulfilling life."

About Me

Research & Publications

I am a warm and empathetic practitioner and offer a supportive, trusting, and non-judgmental space to help my clients feel safe to explore their difficulties. I am passionate about what I do and dedicated to my work with each of my clients. 

Regardless of the style of therapy, I focus on helping my clients to identify the main problems causing their distress, in order to work through them, move towards change and acceptance, and achieve their goals in therapy. 

My style is based on pluralistic, humanistic, and relational approaches to therapy and counselling. I place great emphasis on my relationship with each client, which I believe is a significant vehicle for change. I see every person as a unique individual and tailor the treatment protocol to that individual's specific needs, while drawing on a wide range of evidence-based therapeutic theories and techniques. I am heavily influenced by mindfulness and the significance of context in understanding human behaviour and promoting mental health. 

I enjoy working at CPG because it is a great opportunity to work for an established brand that is a leader in the field of psychology and is committed to helping individuals with a wide range of difficulties from all walks of life by offering evidence-based therapeutic approaches. While I can work and grow individually as a psychologist, I am also part of a big team and an environment that facilitates that growth. I am supported by a great admin team and receive effective supervision to ensure that I am helping my clients in the best way possible.
