Psychologist Cory headshot

I am an HCPC registered Psychologist, with over five years of experience working in the NHS in a
variety of settings, working with individuals and their networks, across the lifespan. I am trained and have experience in supporting adolescents and adults with a range of psychological difficulties. Notably, this experience has included working with people presenting with complex trauma, who have experienced adverse early attachment relationships, as well as people struggling with issues around their identity.

I specialise in working with people who find it difficult to manage emotional responses to life events,
as well as those who struggle with negotiating interpersonal relationships, whereby they find
themselves repeating the same patterns of behaviour; these often stemming from earlier life
experiences.

My approach is person-centred and holistic, tailoring interventions to meet the specific
needs of the individual. I am aware how challenging it can feel to start therapy; I aim to create a safe
space to allow you to talk about your difficulties and for us both to understand what the difficulties
are, where they developed from and how they are being maintained in your current context. With
this understanding and clear therapeutic goals outlined, I work in a collaborative and empathic way
to help you move forwards meaningfully with your life.

I am qualified to draw from a variety of psychological approaches. I have specialist training in Eye
Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR). However my treatment approach is integrative,
largely drawing on concepts from Mentalisation-Based Therapy (MBT), as well as Schema Therapy
and Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT). Understanding distress in a person’s life context is important
to me, where I apply a systemic approach, acknowledging that difficulties are greatly impacted by
our environment and experiences. Overall, my goal is that I provide a tailor-made approach for each
client. Using this approach can help to use the therapeutic relationship as a vehicle for change. I am
aware how challenging it can feel to start therapy; I aim to create a safe space to allow you to talk
about your difficulties and for us both to understand what the difficulties.

I see clients at the Oru Space consulting rooms in East Dulwich.
