What to Expect

An introductory assessment appointment helps you to discover if you feel comfortable with me, share what troubles you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and assess if therapy could help you. Please use a contact option on the right to book a preliminary assessment meeting in Forest Hill, London or Bank, London.

Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT)

CAT elucidates how your past affects your present-day thoughts (cognitions) and feelings. It explores your survival techniques and if they help or obstruct you. The intention of CAT is to help you identify fresh and useful ways ahead.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT focuses on how your thoughts influence your emotions and actions. It identifies and addresses negative ideas that perpetuate the issues you experience. The objective of cognitive behavioural therapy is for you to experience healthier thoughts and emotions.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) suggests cognitive behavioural therapy for alcohol dependence, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) (ME), depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), panic disorder, social anxiety disorder and substance dependence.


Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You decide what issue concerning your childhood or adulthood you discuss. An aim of counselling is to enable you to speak about a problem and find a way forward which is appropriate for you.


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the problems you confront. It explores your thoughts, emotions and relevant events in your life. Psychotherapy aims to help you change or find suitable methods of managing.
