Hey, I'm Freya. I'm a Senior Clinical Psychologist with over 10 years’ experience across the NHS, private and third sector organisations.
I work with a broad range of mental health problems. I draw from the evidence base, meaning that I base therapy methods on scientific research.
I currently work in workplace wellbeing for a technology startup and I have a private practice clinic. Prior to this I provided therapy for clients in corporate settings in their healthcare centres and worked in neurorehabilitation.
I enjoy exploring clients' stories and help them to align with their values, with the aim of improving emotional wellbeing. I help clients to better understand the relationship they have with themselves and others. I believe that our need to belong is key to many of our drives. I like to think systemically, which means considering the person in the context of their current and past situations.
I offer online and in person sessions, the latter taking place in Balham, South West London.
