Dr Tom Kent, Clinical Psychologist
Dr Tom Kent (CPsychol, PG Dip CBT, DClinPsy, BSc)
I am a chartered and HCPC-registered Clinical Psychologist based in London, offering psychological assessment and therapy. In addition, I am a fully accredited BABCP Cognitive Behavioural Therapist.
I tend to use a cognitive behavioural approach to help people with their problems but I also integrate schema therapy and dialectical behaviour therapy when needed.
I have particular experience with the following issues (but not exhaustive list):
- Depression & low mood
- Low self-esteem and confidence
- Social anxiety
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- 'Personality disorders'
- Excessive worries and Generalised Anxiety Disorder
- Panic attacks
- Body image concerns & Body Dysmorphia Disorder (BDD)
- Health anxiety
I have worked in the NHS (South London & Maudsley; Camden & Islington) in various settings specialising in areas of personality disorder, depression, trauma and anxiety disorders as well as King's College London in the counselling & mental health support service. Currently, alongside private practice, I work as a Teaching Fellow across the clinical and counselling psychology doctorate programmes at the University of Surrey.
Therapy using Skype is possible if it would be difficult for you to attend face to face.

Skype Online Therapy
It can be difficult to attend therapy due to the location or time - online therapy can solve this problem.
You will need:

To get the most of the sessions you will need to have access to a private and quiet space for that time.
