How can I help?


Welcome to my website – I am a Cognitive Therapist and Advanced Accredited Schema Therapist based in North London. You are probably looking for help. You may be struggling with anxiety, feeling stressed or depressed. You might have problems with your relationships or at work. You may have a difficult relationship with food or other substances. Or you might just feel lost or that life has little meaning.

You may have had problems for years or even decades – and it's hard to remember a time when you weren't struggling. You might have tried a number of things to help yourself, perhaps including different kinds of therapy – but it hasn't worked. That's where schema therapy comes in. This highly effective approach is based on CBT, but has been enriched and expanded to make it one of the most transformative styles of therapy currently available.

Schema therapy can often help even the most stubborn, hard-to-treat, longstanding problems that other approaches cannot shift. It is a warm, compassionate, creative approach that can heal deep hurts and trauma, whatever you may have been through in your life. 

There is a huge amount of information, available for free, on my site. I write a Healthy Adult Blog, covering all aspects of mental health and wellbeing; there are also pages explaining what schema therapy is and how it works, as well as resources on mindfulness and compassion. You can also read articles on common psychological difficulties like anxiety, depression, problematic anger, harsh self-criticism and low self-esteem.

As well as providing and writing about therapy, I also teach CBT, schema therapy and mindfulness to groups ranging from schoolchildren to counsellors, psychotherapists, psychologists and other health professionals. You can read all about my teaching here and do get in touch if you would like me to teach for your organisation.

As a Cognitive Therapist and Advanced Accredited Schema Therapist, I am trained to help people with a wide range of difficulties. I see people at my office in East Finchley, North London. If you would like to find out more about how I can help, call me on 07766 704210, email or use the contact form to get in touch.

Warm wishes,



The most beautiful people we have ever known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
