My professional experience:

I have worked at Nightingale Hospital London since 1994 running Cognitive Behavioural Groups as well as seeing individual patients for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

My personal statement:

I primarily work with patients experiencing depression and anxiety.  My main interests are health anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, panic attacks and phobias with an emphasis on exposure and behavioural change as well as cognitive modification of unhelpful beliefs.
