Clinical Psychologist in East Dulwich, CPsychol, DPsych, MSc, BA
Headshot of Dr Inke Schreiber

I am a qualified clinical psychologist and psychodynamic psychotherapist with an interest in understanding mental distress using narrative and psychodynamic models as well as community psychology. As such, I understand distress as inter- and intrapersonal conflicts. Therapy can provide a space for these conflicts to be explored and understood. 

I have over 10 years of experience working in a range of NHS settings and with people of all ages. Since 2021, I also practise privately. Working with patients from a variety of cultural and socio-economic backgrounds, I believe it is vital in therapy to make space for issues such as social inequalities, gender, race and disability to name but a few and to link these to how mental distress develops and is maintained. 

As well as working in private practice, I am the lead clinical psychologist in an assertive outreach team in London. I work with people who experience homelessness, trauma often resulting in mental distress. I am passionate about promoting social justice within my role and believe this to be a vital part of being a therapist. I value authenticity, honesty, curiosity and compassion in my work with the aim of coming to a joint understanding with my patients of what brings them to therapy. Emotional struggles can arise in an attempt to cope with and manage life circumstances – the complexities of this deserve a space to be heard. 

I am registered with the Health Professions Council (HCPC) as a practitioner psychologist, and with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) as a psychodynamic psychotherapist and I practise in accordance with the standards of the HCPC and BPC.  

I prefer to see patients face-to-face because I believe this makes for a better experience of therapy for the patient and me. However, I will consider offering online sessions where this facilitates access to therapy for someone who cannot attend in person. In such instances, I would usually offer a space to think about barriers to attending in person and to discuss some of the potential limitations of online therapy.
