About Dom

I am a cognitive therapist based in London and online. I specialise in helping people with addictions and addictive behaviours of all kinds. I can also help with anxiety, depression and stress-related concerns.


My goal is to help you relate to your thoughts, your behaviours and yourself in a more helpful, realistic and compassionate way. Change comes more easily with context and understanding.

I know that asking for help in addressing unwanted behaviours can be daunting, so please do reach out for a free initial introductory consultation if you're considering working together but want to know more.

I work both in person and online. I offer online sessions Monday to Thursday evenings, and in person sessions on Fridays in Clerkenwell.


I only use approaches which are rigorously grounded in the best research. These include metacognitive, behavioural and mindfulness-based techniques. They are improvements on the traditional cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) approach.


Before starting my private practice, I held roles in the prison system and the luxury private rehab sector. I am confident working with people from all backgrounds and have experience with a wide range of both substance-based and behavioural addictions.

I developed a specialism on self-care, resilience and reflective practice and have a record of delivering groups and training.


I hold a Postgraduate Diploma with Distinction in Addiction Psychology and Counselling, and a Drug and Alcohol Professional Certificate.

I am an Advanced Practitioner and Accredited Member of Addiction Professionals and a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am fully insured and receive regular clinical supervision.


Alongside my practice, I am completing doctoral research in addiction psychology, teach counselling skills and provide reflective practice groups for frontline substance misuse workers.
