Psychology for Better Living...Getting the help and support that's best for you
Welcome to my practice website. If you are seeking individual or couple’s therapy, you can find information here about my approach as well as practicalities about what to expect from therapy.
People usually seek psychological therapy for particular problems although these are often linked to making improvements in ways of living and functioning. The difficulties could be associated with particular life events or may be part of a longer term pattern of anxiety, mood or interpersonal issues.
Problems people seek help for include:
-depression, low mood and lack of motivation
-anxiety [including worry, panic attacks, OCD and Post-Traumatic Stress]
-coping with and adjusting to physical health conditions
-relationship, intimacy and sexual problems
-emotional regulation & anger management
-problematic behaviours and habit problems
-major life changes
As a clinical psychologist, I apply a range of psychological concepts and models to address these issues. My starting point is trying to understand the individual(s) I am meeting with and how they experience their difficulties. The primary therapeutic approach I use is cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT).
What’s most important is finding an individualised way of working for each person I see, including a shared sense of how therapy can best meet their needs.
For most people, better understanding of their problems is the basis for addressing them. In therapy, we work together on identifying, initiating and maintaining change over time. Progress is monitored through resolution of problems as well as broader goals, such as greater confidence and satisfaction in key areas of life.
My private practice is a short walk from Baker Street Station and Marylebone High Street.
