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.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
