Dr. Federica Alberton
I am a Consultant Clinical Psychologist with over 15 years experience with people across life span, from children to adults, as well as people presenting with a wide range of challenges. My works draws on a range of therapeutic approaches and techniques, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Behavioural and other Mindfulness based approaches, as well as Family Therapy.
I am passionate to help individuals discover their strengths, reach their potential, and embrace changes and important life transitions.
I am also compassionate, caring and inquisitive clinician who believes that change and problem solving are best undertaken with a collaborative and proactive approach involving the individual (adult or child) and their network. As a result, empathy, appreciation and honesty are paramount to my approach.
In addition to work work with adults, the clinical and personal experiences have forged a particular interest in in nurturing early attachment relationships and adjusting parenting as a child works through typical developmental transitions. My work with children/young people has always been centred on addressing the emotional needs, assessing the complexity of their needs, giving feedback and consulting with parents/careers and liaising with other agencies, such as educational sector, and any other relevant professionals.
I can also provide highly specialised psychological assessment, (including Autism Assessments, and other neuro developmental concerns such as attention deficit) and intervention for children, adolescents, their families as well as professionals. I do this from a clinic in Chelsea.
My expertise is such that she also collaborates with University College of London and University of East London and offers ongoing supervision to junior colleagues and trainees clinical psychologists.
