About me

Hello, my name is Anne-Marie, I'm a Clinical Psychologist specialising in helping adults and young people with a wide range of issues and concerns. I really enjoy working with teenagers, millennials and parents of young children on achieving life goals. I have over 15 years experience of working in the NHS. I offer a friendly and approachable private psychology service to adults and teenagers. My focus is on providing practical support and strategies to create positive change to enable you to live your life the way you want to.

My private practice clinic is based in Balham, London. I’m happy to do home visits in London and Surrey, as well as telephone consultations.

I am available during office hours on weekdays from 9am-5pm.

  • The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), the regulatory body for Clinical Psychologists.

I offer a free initial telephone consultation of 15 minutes so that we chat and you can find out more about the therapy I offer and whether we would be a good fit. Please do see my website for more information.

I accept Aviva, Bupa International, Cigna, Vitality and WPA health insurance. If you are with another insurer please do contact me as I am happy to register with others.

Further information

Support for adults' and teenagers’ wellbeing:

  • Adjustment to the impact of life transitions: job and house moves, illness, adjustment to a family member's additional needs, antenatal and postnatal support and therapy.
  • Supporting self-esteem and resilience
  • Anxiety issues: generalised worries and fears, phobias, exam and job worries, health worries, panic attacks
  • Low mood (I am not able to provide support for very significant low mood or self-injury in my private work)
  • School and work related challenges (e.g. social relationships with peers and worries, the move to GCSEs, A levels, University)
  • Cognitive assessments to identify strengths and needs

Specialism in different thinking styles:

  • My NHS specialism is working with people with different thinking styles, such as autism, Aspergers, ADHD, dyslexia and dyspraxia.
  • A different thinking style can be a big positive, but these differences can create organisational, sensory and anxiety/self esteem pressures. It can be really valuable to work through your strengths and areas where you might need more support. We would often consider where you want to focus your emotional resources and what things are difficult. I provide practical strategies which will scaffold areas that you are finding challenging.

I use a integrative approach to provide therapy focusing on managing anxiety, building self esteem and dealing with transitions and life milestones. I really enjoy working with teenagers, millennials and parents of young children on life goals.

This is a guide to the areas I offer support with, if you or your family member have a different issue you need advice and support with, then please do email me with a brief description of the issue.
