Psychotherapist | Schema Therapist & CBT Therapist

I am a psychotherapist with several years of experience specializing in Cognitive Behavioural Therapies and Schema Therapy. I help people with a wide range of psychological problems at my private practice in north London and offer online sessions to video consultations if you are unable to attend in person.

I can help with a wide range of issues depression, problems with panic and anxiety (panic disorder, phobias, generalized anxiety disorder), relationship difficulties, obsessive compulsive disorder, eating disorders, trauma and PTSD, childhood trauma, personality disorders, low-self esteem, and self-exploration.

I have a bachelor’s degree in Psychology (2012) and master’s degree in Clinical Psychology (2017) which I completed extensive psychotherapy training as part of the programme.

I also completed additional training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapies, Art Therapy and Play Therapy. I completed my schema therapy training with International Society of Schema Therapy. I am also a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) and International Society of Schema Therapy (ISST).

Previously, I worked as a psychotherapist for several charities such as Doctors of the World and Maya Foundation between 2015-2019. I had the chance to offer psychotherapy to people with various issues and coming from different cultural backgrounds.

Currently, I accept clients at my private practice.

Schema Therapy:
Schema Therapy helps with self discovery, depression, relationship problems, and personality issues/disorders.
In schema therapy, we will work to uncover and understand your schemas, sometimes called as life traps which are unhelpful patterns that we might all develop if our emotional needs aren’t met as a child.
These schemas can affect you throughout life and contribute to problematic coping methods and behaviours if they aren’t addressed. Schema therapy aims to teach you how to ensure your emotional needs are met in a healthy way that doesn’t cause distress.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy:
It is a short term psychotherapy approach that help you to manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It is the mostly recommended approach to treat anxiety, panic disorder, depression, OCD and PTSD.
I will help you to identify and challenge any negative thinking patterns and behaviour which may be causing you difficulties. In turn this can change the way you feel about situations, and enable you to change your behaviour in future. You and I might focus on what is going on in your life right now, but we might also look at your past, and think about how your past experiences impact the way you see the world.

We will meet for an initial consultation session which takes between 50-60 minutes which we will discuss your needs, expectations, my style of working and come up with a plan if we decide to work together further.
Please note that I cannot offer fortnightly sessions. Appointments are to be kept regularly on a weekly basis.

I currently offer online sessions only in line with the government advise. However, I have previous training and extensive experience in online working and I see online therapy as a method of choice for many clients. I prefer to work online when you would like to receive online therapy and I find it as effective as face to face interaction.
