Child and Educational Psychologist

Dr Rajinder Sodhi

My name is Erica, and I am a clinical psychologist offering private therapy alongside my work in the NHS. I have worked with children, young people and adults of all ages with a range of mental health experiences.

The focus of my practice is to be creative and collaborative, taking an integrative approach and tailoring therapy to individual interests and values. My approach is centred on building trust and relational safety from where we can develop a shared understanding of any difficulties and acknowledging that people are experts in their own lives. I draw on evidence-based approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and Systemic approaches, particularly Narrative therapy.

My current role in the NHS involves working alongside marginalised groups to improve access to mental health services, centred around the principles of community psychology and co-production.

Clinical Psychologist

Dr Erica Maloney

I'm Arti, a dedicated and compassionate Counselling Psychologist with a deep commitment to helping individuals navigate life's challenges and break free from toxic generational patterns. My problem-solving skills and patient approach are instrumental in guiding clients towards positive outcomes. I believe in the power of tolerance and calm in fostering an environment of healing and growth. I am passionate about helping individuals break free from toxic generational patterns, empowering them to create healthier dynamics and relationships. My experience spans a wide spectrum and I have experience working with those experiencing drug and alcohol dependencies. I have experience with perinatal and postnatal clients. I believe in the power of early intervention and I am able to carry out play therapy using psychodynamic interventions. My therapeutic approach is versatile; drawing from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, psychodynamic methods and person-centred modalities.

Counselling Psychologist

Dr Arti Mehan-Patel

I am a Counselling Psychologist and MBT Practitioner. With over 8 years of experience, I have worked in NHS primary and secondary care, as well as community counselling services. My experience involves working with patients dealing with a variety of mental health issues.

Everyone is different, and everyone has a unique life full of challenges and strengths. Thus, the aim of my work is to collaboratively focus on what you may want and need help with. It's important to me that you feel safe and accepted, enabling you to explore your difficult experiences, understand what troubles you, accept what cannot be changed, and change what can be changed. As such, therapeutic process can help you learn how to break the cycle of hopelessness and find helpful ways out of your experiences of feeling stuck.

My approach is rooted in a pluralistic model, integrating elements from psychodynamic, humanistic, existential, and cognitive-behavioural therapeutic modalities. This means that different theories or therapeutic models may be more or less helpful at different points in time, depending on your needs or preferences along your therapeutic journey.

Counselling Psychologist

Dr Egle Meistaite

I am a Clinical Psychologist offering private individual therapy to adults. I also work part-time in the NHS in a Cancer Psychology service. I qualified in 2005 and over the years have worked in a wide range of settings and with a variety of difficulties. These include working with people with severe and enduring mental health problems, inpatient psychiatric units, community mental health teams and with people in mental health crisis.

In recent years I have developed an interest in working with people with various physical health problems and with people who may be experiencing symptoms of anxiety and depression as a result of what might be called a crisis of meaning, or an 'existential crisis'. For some people these symptoms might be understood as being a form of philosophical or existential Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I am also interested in working with people who have a fear of becoming ill or dying.

I use concepts from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in my work, alongside Compassion Focused Therapy and existential ideas. I enjoy working with people to help them develop a different relationship with difficult thoughts and feelings, whilst also supporting them in building a meaningful and fulfilling life.

Clinical psychologist

Dr Joanna Cates

I trained in Psychology after an early career in media, wishing to work closely with people and the difficulties that they are experiencing in their lives. I understand mental health and well-being difficulties as serious challenges that can be changed with the right psychological support. As a Counselling Psychologist, I’ve had therapy and valued it enormously for the experience that I gained.

My professional experience is within NHS primary and secondary services (children and adult), the MOD working with military-service men and women, and the community voluntary sector.

My approach is to personalise therapy for each young person or adult that I am entrusted to work with; we are not all the same. I use contemporary and evidence-based approaches; CBT in many forms including ‘Early Intervention’, Narrative, Person-Centred, and multiple trauma approaches including EMDR. My role as a professional is to support informed therapy choices that people must make for their goals to be realised. I also understand the value of a good therapeutic relationship – a fundamental for any effective therapy experience.

Counselling psychologist

Dr Peter Neil

Different life stages have their own particular challenges whether that’s childhood, adulthood or older. I focus on "life-induced burnout", however that may present; in a diagnosis of some kind, feelings of hopelessness, frustration or even confusion. My intention is to help people understand their place in the world, regardless of age. I help people develop insight into who they are and why they do the things that they do. Understanding yourself is the first step in being able to identify things that you can change, things you can’t change and things that you won’t change about yourself. 

I have 14 years of experience as a clinical psychologist working with vastly different clients and settings, including the NHS. 

I also offer 90 minute sessions in my equine facilitated psychotherapy clinic in Epsom. I have a therapy herd where I conduct sessions with individual clients. Nature based therapies are becoming increasingly popular as people seek out something different to room-based therapies. Work with horses is incredibly effective and is considered “high impact, slow release”. This means that the experience can be profound in the moment, with the impact lasting long after the therapy is concluded. 

Clinical psychologist & equine psychotherapist

Casey Bradford

I provide a safe, supportive, confidential space to help us make sense of, and move beyond the difficulties you are experiencing. My approach offers a thoughtful and valuing presence, combined with expertise and experience to help you experience greater wellness, and create what’s important to you.

Over the last 20 years, I have had the privilege of working with people who present with a range of difficulties. This combined with being a senior clinician in the NHS, working in private hospitals, forensic settings, and running my own practice has enabled me to develop specialist knowledge and skills.

I have worked with people from different backgrounds and have extensive experience in evidence-based therapies including CBT, EMDR, Compassion Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, and Psychodynamic approaches. My expertise lies in combining scientific evidence - based approaches with intuition to create meaningful change.

Clinical Psychologist

Dr Katy Stillwell

As a dual qualified clinical and counselling psychologist , I strive to foster a non-judgemental, warm, and collaborative space for you to feel comfortable. I strongly believe there is no “one size fits all” approach, so although skilled in a number of evidence based therapy models such as CBT, my approach is individually tailored to your unique problems and circumstances. 

I worked for a number of years in Canada in adult mental health in leadership roles before moving to the UK in 2015. The areas I specialise in are anxiety such as panic, social anxiety, phobias, OCD, PTSD, and the psychological and emotional aspects of managing long term health conditions.

I am passionate about culturally inclusive therapy and have published research in this area. I have been interviewed by the BBC several times as an expert in culturally inclusive practice. In my clinical work, this means that I embrace talking about your religious faith, cultural background, spiritual beliefs, or any experiences of racism or discrimination, and will tailor the approach and techniques to fit with this.

I offer a warm and safe space for clients to talk about their experiences and develop a deeper understanding of their difficulties, their emotions, and their relationships. I support clients towards achieving their therapy goals by offering insights, skills, and techniques that can contribute to long lasting change. I also pay close attention to factors which may be negatively impacting clients unconsciously (without awareness), and support them to work through and resolve difficulties in order to live the life that they want to live.

Developing a collaborative therapeutic relationship is really important to me so that you feel understood and supported to talk about what has and is currently happening in your life. Together we can then make sense of the problems you are experiencing and develop goals to focus therapy. I can also help you learn and practice different skills and strategies to make positive changes in the areas of life that have become difficult and/or less enjoyable for you. I look forward to talking with you soon.

In this context, coaching is a collaborative process in which I help my clients to get a clearer picture of what they want and how to get there. Some clients enjoy learning about what current research says about ADHD and other executive function challenges, but the most important part is to learn about your experiences and particular traits. We will explore your strengths and use them to create the momentum needed to work through current and future challenges and to bring long term motivation and enjoyment to your life. I trained as a coach with the ADD Coaching Academy and I'm a member of ICF (International Coaching Federation). I hold a MPhil in Cognitive Science and I have published several papers in the field.

ADHD & Executive Function Coach

Carlos S. Armendariz

I am a Forensic Psychologist and have worked in the NHS and charitable sector for over 10 years. I am a Schema Therapist working towards accreditations with the International Society of Schema Therapy (ISST). My roles have included work with adults and children with a range of difficulties including mental health and personality disorder, substance misuse issues and complex trauma. My roles in the forensic sector mean that I have particular skills with working with risky behaviour and understanding the underlying meaning behind them. My main therapeutic approaches come from a combination of my experience and training, and include Schema Therapy, Person Centred Counselling and Motivational Interviewing. I am keen to offer others space and time to reflect on themselves and their history, and help them to make sense of any difficulties they might be facing in life, so that they can move forwards. It is of particular importance to me that I provide a safe space for members of the LGBTQIA+ community. I currently offer appointments online.

Forensic Psychologist

Dr Julia Langley

My name is Erica, and I am a clinical psychologist offering private therapy alongside my work in the NHS. I have worked with children, young people and adults of all ages with a range of mental health experiences. The focus of my practice is to be creative and collaborative, taking an integrative approach and tailoring therapy to individual interests and values. My approach is centred on building trust and relational safety from where we can develop a shared understanding of any difficulties and acknowledging that people are experts in their own lives. I draw on evidence-based approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and Systemic approaches, particularly Narrative therapy. My current role in the NHS involves working alongside marginalised groups to improve access to mental health services, centred around the principles of community psychology and co-production.

Clinical Psychologist

Dr Erica Maloney

I am a Clinical Psychologist who has worked across a range of mental health settings (mostly in the NHS) to help people find ways to overcome some of the challenges in life. I believe in the importance of providing evidence based, high quality therapy, but I also believe that therapy should be a very human experience.

I have completed training in several psychological therapies including cognitive analytic therapy (CAT), eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR), compassion focused therapy (CFT), and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). I am trained to work with a wide range of emotional distress including anxiety, self-esteem issues, low mood and depression, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), complex trauma, difficulties within interpersonal relationships as well as problems that might not fit into a neat box or ‘label’. 

I adopt a kind and compassionate approach within therapy and ultimately, I work with people in therapy to help them find ways to live the life that they want, which can include overcoming barriers, and working out what is meaningful to them. 

Clinical Psychologist

Dr Sam Gerdes

As a highly motivated and dedicated professional, I have provided psychological services within the NHS and as an independent practitioner in the United Kingdom since 2001. I am experienced in using psychological therapies to help alleviate emotional distress across the lifespan. I am trained in a number of therapeutic modalities including CBT, Compassion Focussed and Acceptance, Mindfulness, Systemic, EMDR, Psychodynamic, Schema, and Attachment. I employ trauma-informed approaches integratively to understand the complex and pervasive impact of trauma on a person’s worldview, and to suit your needs and experience within the foundations of our therapeutic alliance.

I am a registered supervisor with the British Psychological Society and EMDR consultant in Training. I have supported the planning and development of clinical psychology training and lectured at the University of Oxford, University of Brighton and Canterbury Christ Church University as well as other academic establishments in England, Mexico and Spain.

Clinical Psychologist

Dr Marta de Madariaga López

I have experience working with presentations including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and PTSD. I work integratively , drawing on skills and thinking from Cognitive Behavioural therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) in the pursuit of helping the people I work with move towards to things that give their life meaning.

I enjoy thinking with people about their beliefs, theories, and philosophies as we seek to make sense of the current difficulties that they are experiencing, whilst maintaining a safe and trust filled space to explore current difficulties and work towards shared goals.

In a changing world, not all sources of distress are diagnosable disorders. My research interests are in Eco-distress, and I am willing to think about this, relatively new, phenomenon therapeutically with people in order to reduce the severity of distress in people’s lives.

Clinical Psychologist

Dr Luis Calabria

I am a highly qualified and HCPC registered Counselling Psychologist. I have extensive clinical experience in NHS settings (including adult mental health and clinical health psychology); the voluntary sector; schools; and private practice.

I can help you to address a range of mental health issues and welcome clients from all backgrounds. I offer both short and long term therapy for various anxiety based issues, depression, low self-esteem, eating related difficulties, PTSD (trauma), and those with long-term physical health conditions. As a Counselling Psychologist I provide a range of different therapies such as CBT, ACT, EMDR, and person-centred approaches. This affords us flexibility in how we work together, with selected approaches tailored to your needs and goals.

My hope is that I can be a useful resource and provide a supportive relationship within which you can make meaningful change. I will aim to put you at ease by providing a calm, safe, non-judgemental and validating space for therapy, with regular reviews and feedback used to ensure effectiveness and satisfaction.
