Hannah Clifford

CBT Psychotherapist and MBCT trainer in East Dulwich
Hannah Clifford CBT and Mindfulness Therapist Headshot

I am a BABCP-registered Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist (CBT), BAMBA accredited
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) teacher and Eye Movement Desensitisation and
Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist. I recognise what it takes to reach out for support and understand
the importance of feeling heard by the therapist that you are working with. I am committed to
working in a responsive and dynamic way, informed by my substantial experience in working within
diverse communities. My approach is based on a commitment to understanding the social,
environmental and psychological factors that inform your experience. As a therapist I am dedicated
to building and sustaining an authentic and open therapeutic relationship with you, where you will
feel both safe and supported.

I take an integrative and person-centred approach to working with people. As an MBCT teacher I
have established and facilitated MBCT groups for people who struggle with depression and enjoy
bringing mindfulness into my one-one work with people, if this fits for them. I have completed
additional complementary training in Acceptance &Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion-
Focused Therapy (CFT) and use these approaches in sessions when relevant to their presenting

I have extensive experience in the NHS and third sector organisations where I have worked with
adolescents and adults experiencing a broad range of difficulties, primarily PTSD, Anxiety (GAD, OCD,
Phobias, Panic Disorder and Health Anxiety), Depression and Low Self-Esteem. I also have vast
experience working with people in the peri/post-natal period.

Please kindly note that I only see self-funding clients. I do not work with any private medical
insurance providers.
