Dr. Claire Tobin

(BA Hons, MSc, DClinPsy)

Dr. Claire Tobin, Clinical Psychologist, London, UK

I currently have availability from September 2024 at 10 Windsor Walk, SE5 8BB.

I am a senior clinical psychologist working in both the NHS and in private practice. For several years I have dedicated my clinical work to helping people who have experienced adverse early experiences; this means that they may not have had their basic emotional needs met in childhood, for various reasons. I aim to work together with you to develop a fuller understanding of the development of your difficulties and what might help address them. 


I have completed post-qualification training in a number of therapeutic models including Mentalisation-based Treatment (MBT) and Schema Focussed Therapy (ST). I am an accredited practitioner of MBT with the British Psychoanalytic Council. I also draw on Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), including third wave approaches such as Mindfulness, and Family and Systemic Therapy.

Qualifications/Career Progression

Following completion of my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Kings College London, I have worked in a number of forensic and community-based adult mental health services. In addition, I offer teaching to medical students, and work part-time as a Clinical Tutor on the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the Institute of Psychology, Psychiatry and Neuroscience (IoPPN). I have published a number of scientific and academic articles. I continue to work in the NHS for some of my time, in a psychological therapies service for adults with anxiety, depression, affective disorders, personality disorders, and trauma. I also enjoy the ability to respond to patients more flexibly through my private practice. I provide effective psychological treatments, and also supervise other clinicians in delivering this work.
