Dr Caroline Urwin Psychology Practice
A Qualifed and Registered Clinical Psychologist Here to HelpYou
I have over 10 years experience working with children, young people, adults, couples and families presenting with a wide range of difficulties including depression, anxiety, trauma, OCD, behavioural problems, developmental disorders ( such as ADHD and ASD), family and relationship difficulties. I have developed specialist skills in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing ( EMDR), Systemic Family Therapy and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. I am experienced in working with children and adults using all of these models, both individually and integratively.
"The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind."
What To Expect At Your Visit
Perhaps you're down or anxious - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support. Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery. In my therapy sessions I promote behavioral transformation by encouraging a positive outlook and the adoption of new attitudes and feelings. Whether you’re going through anxiety and depression, a hard relationship, or separation - I have the tools and professional experience to help you get ahead.
I guide my clients on every step of the therapeutic process and implement various methods that help them develop new attitudes towards all of life’s most complex matters. In my therapy sessions, we’ll work to solve current problems and change unhelpful thinking and behavior. I will help you “re-frame” your thinking and provide you with valuable tools to cope with life’s obstacles
Child and Adolescent Therapy
Having worked for many years in the NHS as a child psychologist I have experience of working with young people with emotional, social and behavioural difficulties. I have developed specialist skills in treating anxiety, low mood, self harm, childhood trauma, developmental difficulties ( ADHD/ASD) and interpersonal relationship difficulties. When working with young people and their families I draw on a integrative combination of CBT, family therapy and psychodynamic psychotherapy.
Bringing people together in a safe and supportive atmosphere can often help to improve communication and allow a better understanding of each other. My focus is on how to move forward although sometimes it is important to think about past events and their impact on the present and future.
Some of the issues I regularly work with are listed below:
◾Parenting issues with all age groups
◾Couple and marital difficulties
◾Issues relating to divorce and separation
◾Coping with the effects of violence, sexual or emotional abuse in the family
◾Re-building relationships after traumatic event
My private practice clinic is based in Clapham, London
