Clinical Psychology and Specialist in Eating Disorders
Philosophy and style of working:
We all go through our life journeys using different paths which could lead us to an unplanned detour or destination. In such cases we may need someone to hold our hand or guide us to retrace our steps or re-plan our journeys. We could work together to achieve this.
I am passionate and enthusiastic about working with young people, adults, couples and their families. My practice is person-centred and focusses on clients’ personal needs, wants, desires and goals and make them central to their care. This means allowing clients to define and to prioritise their goals.
I offer evidence-based approaches including CBT. I also use integrative methods in my practice that facilitate recovery. I also facilitate group therapy for eating disorders and provide training in eating disorders to other professionals.

Training and Experience:
I work privately and as a specialist psychologist in the eating disorders service for the NHS. I previously worked with women in psychiatric intensive care unit who experience severe, debilitating mental health problems including eating disorders and male forensic patients to support them in their rehabilitation.
I worked as a multi-systemic therapist for a council supporting young people (and their families) who were at risk of exploitation, using drugs and presented with behaviour difficulties and also worked with young people in mainstream schools who were at risk of being excluded or were already excluded and supporting them to reintegrate. In South Africa I worked as a military psychologist supporting soldiers and their families with various mental illnesses.
