Dr Yasmine Lau headshot
I am a Clinical Psychologist in Southeast London (East Dulwich) and online, registered with the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC) and British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP). In my private practice I see children, adolescents and adults with a range of difficulties.

How I work

My experience includes working with difficulties such as anxiety (generalised anxiety, panic disorder, social anxiety, health anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, Complex PTSD and PTSD, low mood, low self-esteem, adjustment to life events, health issues (such as cancer, diabetes, COPD, heart conditions, renal), perinatal difficulties, bereavement, stress and burnout, eating issues, difficulties with sleep and phobias.
I strongly believe in cultivating a compassionate and non-judgemental space in which we work together to understand your current difficulties. In my work I draw upon current evidence-based practice to work collaboratively with children and their families or adults individually to deliver personalised treatment plans. We will work to understand what has led you to therapy, what keeps the problems going at times and building on your strengths to work towards goals and create meaningful changes.

My therapeutic approaches

My skills include specialist training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET) and third-wave therapies such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT) and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT). In addition to narrative and systemic approaches. As a clinical psychologist in Southeast London, I am committed to ongoing professional development.
