Hampstead CBT is a friendly, down to earth evidence based talking therapies service based in the heart of Hampstead.

This means I am trained in effective approaches to dealing with a range of real life difficulties from within the field of psychology and have been applying these to NHS settings, diverse populations and professional settings across London since 2008.

If you have a concern that you’d like to address in a confidential, discreet and non- judgemental space, then you’ve come to the right place. My approach is one that supports the change you want to create in your personal life and career.

What is cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and how can it help?

People often get confused by the terms therapy, counselling, psychotherapy, psychological therapy. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a highly effective approach to change that's solution focused, practical and geared towards achieving specific goals chosen by you. These are very individual and wide ranging, specific to your particular life circumstances and challenges you may feel are holding you back.

Whatever your difficulties, I can offer an individual assessment to help identify key challenges and outcomes you hope to achieve at the first instance, followed by a uniquely tailored treatment programme to support your personal growth journey, or otherwise refer you to a relevant specialist practitioner or organisation.

What issues can cognitive behavioural therapy help with?

People come to therapy for help with a wide range of issues. Here are a few of the more common difficulties that can be supported through therapy:

Feelings of stress


Panic attacks

Relationship problems

Grief, loss or bereavement

Problems with addiction

Trauma and post-traumatic stress



Problems with confidence or self-esteem

Anger management

Issues relating to sexuality

Difficulties at work or in retirement

Problems with family or school life

My Approach

My therapy process is collaborative, solution focused and led by the priorities you identify. We start with some exploratory work to better understand the origins of present day difficulties and how they developed, as well as what’s keeping them going right now. For some people, a detailed assessment and formulation may be enough to give you the boost that you need to start making changes. However, many people find it helpful to have an experienced clinician guide them through a reflective learning process whereby you can start taking concrete steps towards achieving your goals.

I accept health insurance and self funding clients, in person and online.
