About me


I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist working at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and in private practice. 

I obtained a PhD in Psychology and a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology both from King's College London.

I have worked across various specialist services with a range of psychological difficulties and I offer therapies informed by different psychological models. 

I have carried out research, delivered teaching, and provided supervision to junior colleagues.

I am an Accredited Positive Parenting Programme (Triple P) Provider and an Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) trained Therapist.

I have undertaken further specialist training, including Perinatal Clinical Psychology Training and I am completing specialist training to become accredited with the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).

Special Interests 

My clinical specialties are Perinatal (I am a Member of the Perinatal faculty of the British Psychological Society) and severe psychological presentations - my PhD focused on Psychosis and my Clinical Doctorate on Mania.  

I am particularly interested in working with clients in the perinatal period, both antenatally and postnatally, the parent-infant interaction, perinatally-related losses and fertility problems. 

Research Publications

I have published academic research in a range of high-ranking Journals.

A partial list of my publications can be found here: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/?term=Falcone+MA&cauthor_id=25053654


I am available to work with individuals (adults and young people) and couples/families and I offer short- and long-term work. 

I am registered with all the major insurance companies.

I am currently only working remotely.

I offer specialist perinatal supervision.

Training, qualifications & experience

Therapy offered

My stance is to integrate principles from different therapeutic models recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) Guidelines. These include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), third-wave CBT approaches [including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical and Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Compassion-focused therapy (CFT), Schema Therapy, Mindfulness-based CBT], and Psychodynamic and Systemic models.

I am an Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) trained Therapist.

My work is collaborative and transparent, and my therapeutic style is warm and welcoming.

During the psychological assessment, likely to require more than one appointment, I will ask you several questions to explore the difficulties that brought the client to want to access therapy. At the end of this, if a therapy is recommended and agreed upon, it will typically involve weekly sessions of 50 minutes. I will talk about the therapeutic model(s) informing the therapy with you, and this will also depend on your preference, presenting difficulties, and therapy goals. The number of sessions will be considered/agreed upon, and it can be reviewed.

All this will be part of what is called the therapeutic contract process. 

I use clinical formulations (hypotheses on the presenting difficulties) to help you think about various aspects of your life: for example, early experiences, recent events, and strengths. 

I work with a wide range of difficulties: stress, anxiety (including Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), trauma and historical experience of abuse, mood issues (including Bipolar Affective Disorder) and depression, low self-esteem and low self-confidence, bereavement and grief, emotional dysregulation and personality problems, antenatal and postnatal struggles, identity issues, adjustment and life transitions (including difficulties adjusting/transitioning to parenthood), communication difficulties in relationships, chronic illness, disrupted sleep/insomnia, parenting struggles, family issues, couple conflict, neurodiversity/neurodivergence (including ADHD and Autism), chronic anger, unusual experiences. 

​If you find it difficult to know what the ‘problem’ is, whether your concerns are valid; or if you feel a general level of ongoing dissatisfaction/unhappiness that might not fit a specific diagnostic category, I can offer an extended assessment might help identify the most appropriate way of exploring these difficulties.
