Dr. Kate Robinson
(BSc Hons, DClinPsy, AFBPsS)
I am a highly specialised clinical psychologist with over 10 years’ experience of working therapeutically in the NHS and in private practice. I draw upon best practice guidelines to create an individually tailored conceptualisation and treatment plan for you, according to the difficulties with which you are struggling and the changes you wish to make. I work with adults and adolescents (16+ years) with longstanding emotional and psychological difficulties, as well as those struggling with an acute crisis or period of stress.
I am an accredited Eye-Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) practitioner and incorporate this approach where possible to help people free themselves from the impact of past events and live more fulfilled lives in the present. I am also trained in and draw on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Individual & Group Schema Therapy (ST), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT).
After completing my undergraduate degree in psychology at Durham University, I worked at the Woodbourne Priory Hospital’s eating disorder unit in Birmingham before completing my postgraduate Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Salomons, Canterbury Christ Church University. Since then I have been working in a busy Community Mental Health Team in South London and am currently one of the lead psychologists, offering specialist interventions for people struggling with anxiety, depression, personality difficulties and trauma. I also supervise and train other psychologists. For the last few years I have additionally been seeing people privately in Central London.
