Deciding to start therapy with a new therapist can be a daunting prospect. I think that it is important to spend time developing a safe and genuine therapeutic relationship to help you contextualise your difficulties and think together about ways to process these and to move forward. 

I am a registered clinical psychologist with over seven years experience working within various mental and physical health teams in the NHS. I predominantly use a narrative therapy approach but as a clinical psychologist I am able to draw on a number of different psychological therapies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT) and systemic practice. 

I am currently working in cardiac psychology at a busy London NHS hospital. I enjoy supporting people to consider the impact of their physical health on their emotional wellbeing, identity and relationships. I have an interest in supporting clients to think about their own values and what matters to them at different stages of their life, including at the end of their life. 

Becoming a clinical psychologist was a career change for me. I worked in international development and global health before deciding that I wanted to spend my time working directly with people and supporting them with their difficulties. I feel like being able to be with someone as they are discussing what matters most to them is a privilege.
