ABOUT ME

aboutMe

"An outstanding psychologist and exceptional person. Jessamy enabled me to be totally honest for the first time in my life and showed me how to be the best version of myself.”

- A PATIENT

I have run a private practice in London since 2011 and prior to that spent eight years working for the NHS. I am passionate about psychology and the benefits it can bring.

I have co-written books (“THIS BOOK WILL...” series), which were published in 2014/2015 and aim to make psychology accessible and easy to understand. The books have since been released in ten countries.

I am a media psychologist and have been registered since 2013 on the British Psychological Society’s media friendly psychologist list.

MY APPROACH

During the assessment phase of therapy I like to gain a really good understanding of the difficulties you are facing and the symptoms you are experiencing. We work together to break down the problem and explain it in terms of thoughts, feelings (emotional and physical), behaviours and beliefs.

I can help you think about the coping strategies you are using and whether these are working for you or against you. We can then map out the problem and think about how it can best be resolved before making a plan for treatment. Assessment is normally over two sessions and treatment tends to be between 12 and 30 weekly sessions.

Often people feel they are struggling alone. They think the secrets they hold closest and feel most ashamed of set them apart. In fact, these secrets and feelings are what makes them human and just like everyone else.
