Dr Daniel Glazer, Child & Adolescent Clinical Psychologist in North London
I am a Clinical Psychologist holding professional registration with the Health Care Professions Council and Chartered membership with the British Psychological Society. I completed my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at University College London.
I am one of the clinical leads in a leading NHS child, adolescent and young adult service at University College London Hospital. As part of this role, I specialise in working with young people and parents affected by a range of psychological difficulties within the context of medical conditions such as cancer, diabetes & chronic pain. I also work a great deal with the effects of traumatic experiences and I am passionate about supporting young people to help them get back on track in life.
Trainings & Approaches
As a clinical psychologist I am trained and work with a range of psychological approaches including
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) - this includes aspects of mindfulness, compassion and Acceptance and commitment Therapy
- Narrative Therapy & strength based approaches
- Relational psychotherapies - this includes humanistic, existential and psychodynamic therapy
- Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)
I don’t believe in a one size fits all approach and I readily focus on each individual’s unique journey, context and ideas.
I am influenced by a range of psychological therapies and feel this quote sums up my approach and belief about the therapeutic process: “I believe that a different therapy must be constructed for each person because each has a unique story.” Irvin D. Yalom.
As a clinical psychologist I am also aware of the evidence base and its important that the work i do is helpful and effective.

As I clinical psychologist I am trained to work with a wide range of client groups. Within my NHS work I specialise in working with children, teenagers and young adults. I am available to work with this group as well as parents and families.

- Depression - this includes low mood, feeling sad, low self-esteem and self-confidence.
- Relationship issues - including family issues, separation and divorce.
- Trauma - I am experienced in working with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as well as the long term term effects of abuse, bullying and other types of traumatic experiences

What to expect
The first session is a chance to get to know you and find out what you are wanting from therapy. We will then agree to meet for a number of sessions and and at the end of these to have a review to see if the sessions are meeting your expectations and making a difference for you.
I am passionate about my work and welcome discussions in the first instance on what sort of support you might be looking for.
