About me

Are you having a difficult time?

I do hope that I can offer meaningful way forward for you.

My name is Désirée Scarpellini, I am an experienced psychologist with more than ten year's experience of providing psychological therapy in the private sector.

I provide confidential time-limited Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and open-ended integrative psychotherapy in the Chilterns, South Buckinghamshire and online.

  • I offer therapy online (Video Therapy with 'Zoom' Video conferencing) and in a consulting room ('person to person').
  • I work with adults (over 17 years)
  • I work with individuals and couples

Whilst I work with a range of presentations, I have two specialist areas of interest:

  • I am skilled at supporting people to get the most out of their relationships with partners including conflict resolution and overcoming gridlock.
  • I am skilled at enabling the cultivation of a peaceful relationship with processes such as worry, rumination, obsessions, compulsions, panic and anxiety.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold British Psychological Society (BPS) Chartered Psychologist (membership number 170347); I am a Counselling Psychologist, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC Registration number: PYL30687)

I hold current Professional Liability and Indemnity Insurance, Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (EDBS) certification and I am registered with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) as a data controller.

A prerequisite of my professional registration is that I meet regularly with a clinical 'supervisor', and that I undertake ongoing Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

Regular meetings with an experienced clinical supervisor are considered a means to ensuring consistency of practice and clinical safety. Undertaking relevant CPD is considered a means to honouring my commitment to lifelong learning and cultivating my competencies as a psychological therapist.

I have more than ten years' postgraduate experience in the private sector as a contractor with Harley Therapy, 1-7 Harley Street, London.
