Dr Sarah Ross-Taylor CPsychol MBPsS
I am a chartered Counselling Psychologist working in central and west London with over 10 years of experience working within the field of mental health.
I generally work with individuals but do also see families and couples and facilitate group therapy. I work with adults and adolescents with a variety of mental health difficulties for short-term and long-term therapy. I utilise an integrative approach as I do not believe that one size fits all. My integrative approach includes CBT, Psychodynamic principles, DBT and Schema Therapy, to name but a few.
Previously, I worked privately in the city offering CBT to individuals and couples on a short-term basis. In addition, I was based within the NHS as part of South London and the Maudesley working with personality disorders, trauma, anxiety disorders and depressive disorders. I generally work with complex clinical cases where one method does not suit all. Prior to my time in SLAM, I was based in Central North West London within the Drug and Alcohol Teams in Kensington and Chelsea and Hammersmith and Fulham where I worked with individuals and families.
I enjoy working with young people as well as adults and have previously worked within schools with learning disabilities, traumatic brain injuries and behavioural difficulties both in the UK and USA.
