I am a private provider of psychological assessments and interventions based in a South London clinic.
Clinical Psychologists undergo extensive training to support people with a variety of difficulties such as depression, behaviour that challenges and trauma.
Clinical Psychologists aim to reduce psychological distress and improve overall wellbeing. I feel as a psychologist it is important for us to develop a shared understanding of distress. So I focus heavily on building a good therapeutic relationship with each child and young person I see.
Over the years I have seen a significant increase in the amount of stressors and strains that young people face on a day to day basis. Unfortunately, children's mental health services are very stretched and families often cannot access the help they need in a timely manner.
Though I draw on the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidance and wider evidence base, I work creatively with children and young people to create a bespoke service to meet their needs whilst maintaining the highest of professional standards.
I work in an integrative way; drawing on ideas from a range of psychological models including
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy,
