I have completed MSc Courses in Addiction Studies -Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) King's College London. On June 2014, towards my Masters degree I had my clinical replacement at the Beresford Project Alcohol service, in Greenwich, under the supervision of Dr Francis Keaney. Since 2015 I have been working with Redcard Gambling Support as a Gambling Addiction Therapist also voluntarily help Hackney Council on Stoptober Campaign.(Stoptober is a 28 day long event run each October during which participants are encouraged to stop smoking.

cocaine, cannabis, problematic gambling
Over the last few years I worked with variety of clients who suffers from panic attacks, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorders, alcohol, cannabis, cocaine and problematic gambling addiction. I also helped many teenagers who has low Self-Esteem, Social Anxiety and cultural issues in their education I believe being able to share understandable and simple Psychopharmacological information, explaining all pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic made a huge difference on their perspective. Something that they could not find easily over the internet was actually fascinating them and improve the trust for their practitioner.
Sharing deeper information, scientific facts and most importantly list of issues they have been facing during their usage explaining how we can change this together not only boost their self confidence, as their addiction practitioner they believe there is someone out there to help them and they are not alone.
Aside from my academic experience I am a research software engineer. Putting these two sides of my professional background together I developed a mobile based iPhone application called The Alcohol Intoxication Monitor (AIM) for my Msc thesis. The AIM App uses smartphone technology with an integrated application for ecological momentary assessment (EMA) in a natural environment. The app is designed to incorporate the recording of alcohol consumption, BAC Level (blood alcohol concentration), coordinated Geographic Information System (GIS) to place drinking in location, time and recurrence and includes measures of subjective intoxication and mood state with a short version Profile of Mood States (POMS). The app generated interest when I gave a presentation at the Emerging Methods in Addiction Research Conference in June 2015.
I want to continue using my professional and academic interests to further explore brief interventions and harm-reduction and therapeutic treatment for drug and alcohol misusers through mobile apps or e-health programmes and further promote the use of mobile phone apps in addictions and health research. The present opportunity to be involved in the development of e-health programmes relevant to the Patient and Carer Participation theme, within the Biomedical Research Centre for Mental Health (BRC-MH) will help meet these aims.
As a Psychologist I specialise in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is the treatment of choice for anxiety, depression, sex therapy, work related stress, sleeping problems, couples therapy as well as a wide range of issues. CBT is an evidence-based therapy, this means that our therapists are delivering effective treatments that are proven to work quickly and in the long term.
