8 Years Experience

I am a counselling psychologist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), UK. I have over 10 years of experience in the field of trauma, stress, addiction and common mental health problems such as depression and anxiety.
Currently, I am only able to offer clinics online or via the telephone.
As I only work with limited numbers in my therapy work, I am now fully booked for couples work so will be taking new clients once my current cases have completed their treatment journey.

Over the years, my experience has ranged from National Health Services, community clinics, inpatient hospitals and award winning charities. I currently work part time as a psychologist for a leading private sector hospital working with inpatients, offering them intensive and creative therapeutic sessions depending on their individual needs. I am also involved in research as a significant part of my ongoing development and to be able to update my approach in working with my clients. I have a special interest in addition and trauma. My current research(paused) is within the homeless population in UK, so when I am not behind a computer screen at university, I am talking to homeless individuals, sharing ideas, and cups of coffee both in Leeds and London. I have a private practice called the therapy cup which is essentially an idea that was born over the several cups of tea and coffee I have had with a range of clients.

My cardinal belief is that effective therapy should be specifically made to fit to your unique taste and needs rather than the other way round. Therefore, my approach is to find a therapeutic framework that works around the client’s specific needs.
I am trained in : Cognitive behaviour therapy, Eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR),
Motivational Interviewing, Systemic family therapy, Rewind Therapy and Mindfulness approaches.
