The British CBT & Counselling Service



Welcome to The British CBT & Counselling Service We are Doctors of Clinical Psychology and Counselling Psychologists specialising in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for adults and children experiencing a range of problems. Our Doctors of Psychology are carefully hand-selected, have trained in the UK’s leading counselling institutions. They have a minimum of 7 years experience and must also have practised in the NHS so that they have dealt with a much wider array of problems than those who have only practised privately.


Dr Lucy Gee

Clinical Psychologist
Dr Lucy Gee The way I work very much depends on the individual. In my view, there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to therapy. By exploring your goals, values and needs, we can work out where you would like to go, and how we can get there. I have a special interest in mindfulness and third wave CBT approaches, which place an emphasis of finding new ways of relating to thoughts and emotions, and reconnecting with our values.

Dr Nicholas Sarantakis

Counselling Psychologist
Dr Nicholas Sarantakis Practising from an integrative perspective means for me that while CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and person-centred therapy form the ground of my approach, I will often suggest and discuss with you interventions and tasks that derive from psychodynamic, existential psychotherapy and more experiential paradigms, such as Emotion-focused therapy.

Dr Naomi Hynd

Clinical Psychologist
Dr Naomi Hynd I offer an eclectic approach to therapy and adjust to the needs of each individual. I believe a warm empathic relationship is essential. As well as offering CBT, I have a special interest and training in third wave CBT therapies, Mindfulness and Motivational interviewing. The emphasis is on working towards valued living and developing self esteem. My Dramatherapy background also allows for a flexible and creative approach to therapy when required.

Dr Drusilla Joseph

Counselling Psychologist
Dr Drusilla Joseph I believe all human beings deserve the very best out of life, whatever this means for them, and I am proactive in providing emotional and cognitive support for those that need it the most. In a world of constant change, socio economic worries, personal struggles and seeming chaos it can be challenging to know where to gain support or how to move forward. Everyone should have the chance of making their own Journey a fulfilling one and I consider it an honour to be a small part of that journey.

Dr Antonella Trotta

Clinical Psychologist
Dr Antonella Trotta Sometimes in life we find ourselves in a blind spot, where it is difficult to see a way out. During these moments, our mind and body may send us messages. A therapeutic relationship represents a unique opportunity to understand and explore these messages, in a safe environment. Building on communication and trust, therapy can also help to discover inner messages that have been either silent or unheard.

Dr Kalyco Stobart

Dr of Counselling Psychology
Dr Kalyco Stobart Difficulties in life are inevitable; it is part of the human condition. I believe that difficulties with our sense of selves, the struggle of being in relationships with others and feeling stuck or lost, are to a greater or lesser degree, universal. At times of feeling overwhelmed CBT counselling provides a space to think with another person to gain understanding about your internal world, which will enable you to do things differently and move your life forward in the way you would like.

Dr Melanie Goulden

Doctorate in Counselling Psychology
Dr Melanie Goulden It is a part of being a human being that we can find ourselves facing a crisis or feeling distressed, confused or simply very stuck in some way or another. When this happens and existing coping strategies fall short, the perspective, presence and support of another human being is invaluable. It is not necessary to try to navigate difficulties alone. Being listened to, heard and understood, I believe, are integral to emotional well-being, and developing self-trust and self-awareness.

Dr Francesca Palmieri

Chartered Counselling Psychologist
Dr Francesca Palmieri I am very empathetic and care about my work. I am passionate about helping others. I feel privileged to have been given the opportunity to listen, enter people’s life and share the things they feel comfortable with and help them to reach a more fulfilling and optimal stage in their life. Being a psychologist has always just felt like what I should be doing. I believe that people need to have the freedom and emotional acceptance to fully express themselves to reach their full potential.

Taylar Ashlin

Clinical/Neuro Psychologist
Taylar Ashlin I am a Clinical Psychologist/Neuropsychologist who is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council. I first qualified in Australia and started working in Acute Adult and Child Mental Health units. I then came to the UK and now hold the title of Lead Paediatric Neuropsychologist at the Portland Hospital for Women and Children. I also provide expert witness services in Clinical and Neuropsychology.

Dr John Prentice

Clinical Psychologist
Dr John Prentice When we experience psychological discomfort and distress, there must be a solution – a better way of being. I am motivated to work with clients so that together we can creatively explore their problems to find the right questions to answer to bring about healthier alternatives.

Dr Raffaello Antonino

Chartered Counselling Psychologist
Dr Raffaello Antonino I believe I’m a sensitive and inquisitive individual, moved by a genuine curiosity for others and amazed by the uniqueness of every person’s subjective experience. This allows me to respect and value difference and diversity of opinions, cultures, and ethnicities, inside and outside therapy.

Dr Maria Michalitsi

Counselling Psychologist
Dr Maria Michalitsi I am motivated by a lifelong curiosity in people and their capacity to develop. I believe that the relationship between the therapist and the client can be a vehicle for change and I endeavour to develop strong therapeutic relationships. I appreciate that my clients share significant experiences with me and I am grateful for the opportunity to support them in their unique journey. Witnessing change is rewarding and fascinating.

Dr Nicola Meechan

Chartered Clinical Psychologist
Dr Nicola Meechan I aim to support the process of gaining insight and a better understanding of oneself, to enable you to make sense of, and respond to, strong emotions that have perhaps been interfering with your day to day functioning. It is fantastic to witness these changes in thinking and behaviour that often lead to other changes, including the development of greater confidence and self-awareness, and more balanced thinking about ourselves and the world.

Dr Dominic Addison

Chartered Counselling Psychologist
Dr Dominic Addison The fascination with the mind which had me studying psychology 25 years ago has only deepened over the years. It is a privilege to work in a therapeutic space; an office defined by a spirit of respect, open inquiry, and understanding. Our inner lives are endlessly fascinating, and helping people navigate their way through distress and confusion is quite a reward.

Dr Andrea Papitsch-Clark

Chartered Clinical Psychologist
Dr Andrea Papitsch-Clark I am an enthusiastic individual, who is very passionate about and committed to her work as a clinical psychologist. I feel that it is a privilege for me to be invited by clients to share their journey with them, and I find a successful therapy outcome extremely rewarding. My aim is to be collaborative, and to stand alongside the client, helping you make changes to unhelpful thought or behavior patterns, or exploring unhappy feelings, whilst guiding in a kind and gentle way.

Beverley Marais

Chartered Counselling Psychologist
Beverley Marais I have experienced personal therapy throughout my training as a counselling psychologist and psychotherapist. As a result, I have had the fortunate experience of being a client and witnessed the empowering impact of change within a therapeutic relationship. I am often humbled by the human condition and feel honoured to be invited to support a clients’ courageous journey from the unknown to the known, and from disempowered to empowered.

Dr Amy Luck

Chartered Clinical Psychologist
Dr Amy Luck I have been working as a clinical psychologist for ten years. I am passionate about supporting people through difficult times and helping them to find more self-acceptance and happiness. I have always felt privileged to get to know so many people and support and assist them in their time of need.
