I have been in practice for over 20 years and have practising privileges at several Priory Hospitals in the South East. I developed and now lead the DBT Program at the Priory Hospital North London. I started my career in addiction treatment and then went on to study Psychotherapy at Masters level with further trainings in CBT and DBT. I completed a post graduate diploma in clinical supervision in 2017. I love nature and I am a keen skier and scuba diver.

After years of practicing meditation and yoga, I was inspired to train as a counsellor and psychotherapist after volunteering on an eating disorders helpline, and working with addiction. I have over 3 years of experience, particularly in working with eating disorders, addiction and compulsive behaviours, and bereavement, and have worked a lot with young people. I work in private practice in South London and have been co-facilitating DBT Skills groups for the past year and a half. I am currently involved in 3 groups including one group for the charity Body and Soul which has shown really positive outcomes for patients diagnosed with BPD.

As a UKCP accredited therapist with over 20 years of experience, all my interventions are underpinned by my psychotherapy training, however I do not exclusively focus on this modality as the ultimate healing approach. I include a number of other therapeutic options tailored to my patient’s needs and symptoms. I am dedicated to offering a therapeutic approach that is creative, authentic and builds deep inner resilience. I have further trainings in DBT, Somatic Experiencing Trauma and Addictions Counselling, as well as Mindfulness and EMDR.
