About me

My name is Dr Roberta Babb. I am a Chartered Psychologist, Registered Clinical Psychologist and Forensic Psychodynamic Psychotherapist.

I am an experienced individual psychologist who works in East London (near the City), and I have been working within different adult mental health settings as a psychologist since 2008 in the NHS, and in private practice.


I am aware that the decision to enter therapy can be an emotional one, and offer an initial assessment consultation session for you to begin to explore your issues with me and see if you would like to work with me. I facilitate a safe, confidential, non-judgemental and thoughtful space where you can explore a range of problematic issues, sense of self, values, relationships, and patterns of behaviour at your own pace. My work is influenced by psychodynamic psychotherapy, cultural psychology, schema therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy. To develop meaning and enable a you to make sense of your difficulties, I will work with you to safely explore your past, present and future and simultaneously build long lasting internal resources which may help you actively take responsibility to promote positive changes in your life.

I offer individual weekly therapy face-to-face and will also review therapeutic progress you regularly. I can offer twice weekly therapy by arrangement.

I receive referrals through recommendations from clinicians, clients and website.
Please contact me for any questions. Enquiries are dealt with confidentially and promptly.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BSc (Hons) in Psychology, an MSc in Forensic Psychology and  a Professional Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. I have completed a four year training in psychodynamic psychotherapy with a specialist focus on forensic psychotherapy.  I also have postgraduate diplomas in Clinical Supervision and Consultancy and Organisational Development and Executive Coaching.

I am member of the British Psychological Society (BPS), Health Care Professionals Council (HCPC) and the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC).  All professional bodies set standards, values, and ethical guidelines to which I work to.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Supervision

I would describe my supervision style as a conversation that focuses both on the context and process of a client's therapy but also the therapist's process.  I largely draw on psychodynamic theory, but also systemic (as I think that is a vital and often underestimated/neglected aspect of a client's world in therapeutic interventions ), DBT, MBT, CAT and schema.
