Dr Priya Rose Kochuparampil, Chartered Clinical Psychologist, DClinPsy, MSc
19 Kensington High Street
Taking the initial steps to see a psychologist can feel quite daunting. I would like to tell you a little bit about myself and the work I do, so you have a better idea of what I may be able to help you with.
I am a Clinical Psychologist working in the National Health Service, King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. I specialise in the assessment and treatment of young people and adults with a wide range of psychological difficulties including depression, anxiety, panic, managing stress and worry, post-traumatic stress, personality disorders, problems in relationships, as well as difficulties managing anger, guilt, shame and low self-esteem.
However, before we work on addressing any of these difficulties, my first objective is to offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space where you feel listened to. Once we have established a trusting relationship, we can collaboratively work on your therapy goals. I will help you to gain an understanding of your difficulties that considers the impact of past experiences on your present functioning, and help you address these issues using a wide range of evidence-based therapeutic techniques, integrating your own strengths and coping strategies into this work as well.
I offer short-term and long-term therapy. Therapy sessions are 50 minutes long, and typically occur on a weekly basis. If you would like to know more about the way I work and whether we would be a good fit, we could have an initial chat over the phone about your hopes for therapy and how I may be able to help.
Training, qualifications & experience
I completed a Master of Science (MSc) in Psychological Research from the University of Oxford, following which I completed the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DClinPsy) at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King's College London. I am chartered by the British Psychological Society and am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council.
Over the last five years, I have worked in various primary and secondary care NHS services, treating a wide range of psychological difficulties. I primarily use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), but also draw upon other psychological treatment models such as Schema Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), and Mindfulness. In my therapeutic work, I like to integrate a range of therapeutic models tailored to meet each person’s unique needs.
In addition to direct therapy work with individuals, I also provide clinical supervision to clinical psychology trainees and am actively involved in training various professional groups such as the Crown Prosecution Service, multidisciplinary teams in the National Health Service and voluntary sector, and medical students. I also facilitate workshops and groups for survivors of traumatic experiences.
