The British CBT & Counselling Service

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 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 Anna Marshall

Chartered Counselling Psychologist
Dr Anna Marshall At some point in our lives most of us have felt overwhelmed by our emotions and thoughts, which can affect how we behave, and how we think about ourselves and the world around us. I feel that psychological interventions can provide a safe and confidential space to understand these difficulties, and can bring about positive changes. I believe that creating a deeper understanding of oneself can help people to lead the life they have been wanting to live.

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.

Annahita Nezami

Psychologist
Annahita  Nezami I am passionate about promoting psychology and wellbeing in society on micro and macro levels. I feel strongly that all people need to broaden their knowledge on mental health issues, as well as develop the appropriate coping skills to face the challenges of life. I believe mental health should start early in life and advocate implementing preventative measures that address the underlying causes (injustice, abuse and exclusion) of mental distress.

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 Siobhan Tierney

Clinical Psychologist
Dr Siobhan Tierney I have respect for peoples' differences and enjoy seeing people use whatever resources they have to build decent lives for themselves. I am naturally optimistic and a good problem solver but am also able to suspend taking action in order to sit with difficult experiences that bring people to therapy; whilst I am able to help navigate ways out of situations, I do not rush into "rescue" people and appreciate that bearing witness to suffering is often the most precious thing I can offer to a person

Dr Bandna Rekhi

Dr of Counselling Psychology
Dr Bandna Rekhi Like most of us, having had experiences of lows in life, I understand the effort it takes to overcome the fears and anxieties and come to sessions. I respect that and the honour of having been allowed into something that is so personal to the client.

Dr Nicola Williams

Counselling Psychologist
Dr Nicola Williams Before becoming a Psychologist, I first studied to be a Registered General Nurse.  During this period, I spent all my spare time on the psychiatric ward and a good friend said I should have been a psychiatric not a general Nurse.  I love to know what makes people tick [including myself] and why we do the things we do.  It is so important with anyone to just sometimes take a step back and listen... and to be there.

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 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.

Venetia Kotaki

Chartered Counselling Psychologist
Venetia Kotaki Practicing therapy is simply where my heart is. I care about my patients deeply and I endeavour to develop a warm, genuine, collaborative and strong relationship with them. The therapeutic process can either be short or long-term and can at times be challenging. Therapy, however, has the power to hold people and enable them to do the work they need to move forwards.

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.

Dr Tessa Hinshaw

Chartered Clinical Psychologist
Dr Tessa Hinshaw I am endlessly curious about the experience of being human. I am always learning about myself and feel privileged to witness positive change in people’s lives.

Dr Emma Gray

Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Service Director
Dr Emma Gray I am often the first person with whom my patients share significant and intimate thoughts and memories; I never take that privileged position for granted nor the opportunity to help someone to feel better about themselves and discover a more fulfilling life. I feel at ease being a therapist, I can empathise with people’s distress and discomfort but don’t feel overwhelmed by it, I can understand their problem and know how to help, it has always just felt like what I should be doing
