Dr Helen Lister

Clinical Psychologist in Forest Hill, CPsychol, DClinPsy, MSc, BSc (Hons)

I have been registered with the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC) as a Doctor of Clinical Psychology since 2012 and have worked within the NHS as a qualified clinical psychologist since this time. My training consisted of a range of therapies with a specific focus upon Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy and Systemic Approaches. I desire to provide a therapeutic relationship where you can feel safe and supported at a time when you may be feeling at your most vulnerable. I believe in person-centred care therefore it is important for me to tailor therapy to each individual, couple or family whilst taking into account the evidence base of recommended psychological interventions. I aim to help you explore and develop an understanding of your current difficulties using a collaborative focus as together we work towards achieving your goals.

I am experienced in working with adults presenting with anxiety, depression, panic, stress, anger, bereavement, memory difficulties, physical illness, adjustment and trauma. My special interest is in supporting adults experiencing uncertainly and change in the context of loss and bereavement. I routinely work with families and couples and have completed post-doctoral training in this area to develop my expertise.

I have, and continue to deliver clinical supervision to qualified and trainee clinical psychologists, nurses, care teams, researchers and students. I adapt my supervision model as required to the area and designation of the supervisee, although my predominant models are Cognitive Behavioural and Systemic.

I see clients online as well as in my consulting rooms in Forest Hill.
