I have over 10 years’ experience, treating a range of adult mental health issues in a variety of settings including NHS and private hospitals. I apply evidence-based therapeutic approaches, including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), psychodynamic and eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR), to address my patients’ psychological distress. I work collaboratively with patients, tailoring my approach to their individual needs.
