Thank you for visiting my website. I am an experienced Cognitive Behavioral Therapist & Life Coach. I have a Degree (Diploma) in Psychotherapy and I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Psychotherapy.
I also have a Life Coaching Diploma- Advanced Life Coaching Skills and a Corporate & Executive Coaching Diploma.
Originally I trained as a Pediatric Nurse; however, it was always my dream to study Psychological therapies.
My main practices are located in The City Of London, United Kingdom; Stanmore, Greater London and Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire.
During ongoing Covid pandemic, I work Online only (Skype/ Zoom).
My main expertise is Anxiety Treatment.
We all feel Anxiety on some level in our daily lives. Healthy levels of Anxiety are beneficial to us; it drives us forward, it motivates us, it gives us that ‘buzz’ we need to get through the tricky situations. Our brains can not distinguish between Good and Bad Anxiety; it is the meaning, or the view, we take of the situations that determines how we are going to feel. So you see, if you think of an event as ‘happy’ (wedding, birth of a child), you feel good anxiety; if you think delivering a work presentation will be a catastrophe, you will experience bad, or unhealthy, Anxiety. It’s all in our minds!
You may think about coming to therapy when your Anxiety is no longer healthy and under control. If you’ve had bad anxiety over a number of years, left untreated, you may be experiencing ‘Chronic Anxiety’. There are many types of Anxiety, but I will simply put it into two categories: Work-Related Anxiety and Personal Anxiety. With both, you may be experiencing negative physical symptoms (sweaty hands, headache, feeling sick or throwing up, heart racing, difficulty breathing) and psychological symptoms (distorted thoughts, inability to think clearly, emotions jumbled up). Negative behaviours automatically follow: Escape, Avoidance, Withdrawal, Procrastination at work- a downward Anxiety spiral.
My treatment methods combine Cognitive Behavioral Psychotherapy and Coaching. I find these two types of interventions work well together. In addition to one -to-one sessions, I also offer Programs, Workshops and Retreats.
