Dr. Masuma Rahim
2 Victoria Avenue
I am a clinical psychologist, chartered by the British Psychological Society and registered with the Health and Care Professions Council. I have over ten years' experience of working with people with a range of psychological difficulties across their lifespan.
I use a range of psychological models, and provide interventions which are bespoke and which draw on our shared understanding of your individual needs following assessment. Some of the models I use include cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT); mindfulness-based approaches; acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT); compassion-focused therapy (CFT); and systemic therapy. I am also experienced in providing neuropsychological assessment, as well as psychological therapy for people who have experienced brain injury, including stroke. I have a special interest in working with people who identify as LGBT.
