Psychological Therapy and Counselling in London

Welcome, my name is Siobhan McCarthy and I am a Doctor of Clinical Psychology. I have worked for the NHS and in private practice. My private practice has run for over 20 years where I have counselled adults, couples and families in the South London area of Dulwich.

I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist and a Fellow of the British Psychological Society (AFBPsS). I am also a senior practitioner member (MBACP) of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am HCPC registered and approved (my registration number is PYL18777).

As a Chartered Clinical Psychologist I adhere to high standards in confidentiality, ethical practice and continuing training to keep my skills up to date. I am fully Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) checked.

My approach to therapy & counselling means that I understand it is not always an easy decision to seek therapy or counselling but I believe each person, including you, have hidden strengths and abilities which have helped you get through life this far and which can help you get you through these current difficulties. Through my extensive training (15 years of training) I am now able to draw upon a range of therapeutic approaches which I can tailor to you (see therapies offer page). I am very interested in creating change for you and skills building where necessary to promote resilience and well being.

I offer private referrals and believe when people need help this should happen promptly. I treat all my clients with respect, patience and understanding and work hard to make sure that your treatment is effective as possible so that you can get on with the rest of your life as quickly as possible. Clients like my work and you can see this on my website or refer to google searches to see what people say about me.

I welcome clients from all genders, ages, cultures, races, religions and sexual orientations.

Please read through the site or call me if you have any questions, I would be happy to help.
