Valérie Wendorff - Children & Adults Therapy Services
My name is Valérie Wendorff, I am a trilingual Psychotherapist, Chartered Clinical Psychologist and Supervisor. I can offer you the possibility to fully engage in the therapeutic process by expressing yourself in you native language French, Arabic or English. I am a registered member with the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council), BPS (British Psychological Society) and EAP (European Association for Psychotherapy).
I have been actively involved in the psychology field for the past 13 years. Alongside my private practice, I also used to work within the NHS, in different NGOs and schools. I also held the position of Supervisor and Training Manager at a private organisation for Eating Disorders.
Throughout these 13 years I got the opportunity to expand my professional experience as I deal on a daily basis with a wide variety of cases from all ages and different cultural backgrounds.
I am happy to have started a new venture almost a year ago now as the co-founder of ChAT Services: Children and Adults Therapy Services where I collaborate with a group of independent highly trained therapists specializing in different modalities and approaches. If I cannot meet your requirements, take a look at their profiles and let me know if you feel one of them might be a good match or alternatively, give me a call and I would be happy to discuss that with you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I believe that every person is unique, therefore would have unique therapeutic needs. Thus, I use a multi-dimensional approach specifically tailored to the client's difficulty. My training in both Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy has given me the possibility to draw from different modalities in my practice: CBT, psychodynamic, psycho-organic analysis...
