About me

Hi my name is Juanita and I am a clinical psychologist currently working in the NHS and practising privately.  Having worked as a Clinical Psychologist in the National Health Service for over 14 years I have gained considerable experience working with the full range of mental health problems.

My clinical role in the NHS includes consultation and intervention to a large community mental health team. I provided teaching to undergraduate students at Kent university and doctoral student at Royal Holloway University and University of East London.

In my private work I provide treatment in a wide range range of problems, i.e., Anxiety, panic, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder; Depression, recurrent depression, Grief and Bereavement; Relationship Difficulties; Self- harm; Anger; Stress.

My approach is informed by the latest psychological research and incorporates the psychological principles that underpin many therapeutic models. I have training in, and experience of using, cognitive behaviour therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy and systemic family therapy. Therapy is a collabourative process and  a space for people to explore and develop an understanding of problems in order to identify and impliment positive change and ultimately personal growth.

Training, qualifications & experience

I completed my Doctoral training at the University of Essex. Since qualifying I had the opportunity to further my training and experience and completed specialist training in cognitive behavioural therapy (PGDip CBT).

I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist and I am committed to high professional standards, ongoing professional development and fulfilling the requirements of my professional body, the British Psychological Society (B.P.S.) I am listed in the B.P.S. Directory of Chartered Psychologists and in the B.P.S. Directory of Expert Witnesses and am a full member of the Division of Clinical Psychology (DCP).
