About me

Hello, my name is Dragana Savcic-Sanders. I am a Counselling Psychologist with 20 years of experience in the secondary and tertiary NHS psychological services. During this time, I have developed an expertise in working with adults who seek help with a wide range of difficulties . I have worked with people coming to therapy for a number of reasons such as anxiety-related disorders, depression, early childhood abuse/complex trauma, PTSD resulting from various experiences, difficulty in relationships, eating disorders, coping with illness, personality disorder, anger; self esteem issues and many others.

I am highly experienced in providing assessment and trauma-focused therapy for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as well as providing consultancy, group work and psycho-educational programmes. I have a special clinical interest in the psychological impact of traumatic experiences including childhood sexual abuse as well as any abuse-related experiences, accidents, traumatic losses, complex bereavement, rape and political crime including torture. My varied expertise and experience allows me to tailor the best approach according to clients’ needs.

I am further trained in Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) and systemic therapy that helps with interpersonal difficulty - please see below for more information. I am currently coordinating the Complex PTSD team in the north London NHS Mental Health Trust.

I welcome people from all walks of life and cultures who are willing to engage in therapy.

I am based in Bloomsbury - Holborn (WC1) and in Chancery Lane. Both clinics are within reach of  Central London, Covent Garden, Farrington, Bank and West End.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am registered with the Health Professional Council (HPC) as a Counselling Psychologist and I am a member of the British Psychological Society (MBPsS).

I am fully trained in the Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing therapy (EMDR) which is a recommended treatment for PTSD by the NICE (National Center for Clinical Excellence).

I am further trained in Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) and systemic therapy. The process of CAT involves looking at patterns of relating and the effect they can have on the individual and their relationships with others. CAT can be an effective therapy for depression, anxiety and the treatment of borderline personality disorder. It is also a recommended approach for the treatment of eating disorders such as anorexia. If you are coming to therapy feeling troubled by your relationships with other people, then CAT might be the appropriate therapeutic approach for you.

I adhere to the Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy with both HCPC and BPS.
