Meet our team

Our team of highly qualified and skilled clinicians are all experienced in working across a wide spectrum of psychological difficulties. Each one of us has worked in the NHS as well as privately, with patients of all ages and across a wide spectrum of ethnicities.

However, we know that each person is different, and each patient an individual. Each psychologist in our team has additional skills and areas of expertise that we have studied, or developed over the years. With these, we aim to try and offer you sessions with the psychologist who is best equipped to deal with your particular difficulties.

Together with our policy of flexibility, where we are able to offer appointments during the day, in the evenings, or on weekends, we take pride in offering a personalised and patient-focused service.

Dr Anna Chalmers-Brown

Dr Chalmers-Brown graduated with an honours degree in Psychology from the University of Edinburgh. She went on to work in a number of roles supporting adults with severe mental health difficulties, including psychosis. She undertook her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at the University of East London, where there is a particular emphasis on understanding a person’s distress within their wider cultural and societal context. During training she gained experience of using various psychological models, and had placements in adult, child and adolescent, perinatal, older adult and learning disability settings. She completed her doctorate in 2013.

Since qualifying Dr Chalmers-Brown has worked in the NHS in child and adolescent settings, working with young people experiencing various difficulties, such as anxiety, depression, trauma, OCD, self-harm and suicidal thoughts. She has worked with children and adolescents who have been given a diagnosis of ADHD, and is trained in the assessment of autistic spectrum conditions. She has held a post at the Tavistock Gender Identity Development Service where she worked with children and young people questioning their gender identity. Dr Chalmers-Brown has a particular interest in supporting parents and carers to reflect on their own beliefs and experiences and working with them to parent effectively in line with their own values. She completed a postgraduate diploma in Parent Training for conduct problems from King’s College London in 2016, which she passed with distinction.

Dr Chalmers-Brown works across the lifespan and has an integrative approach, drawing on a number of models such as narrative and systemic approaches and cognitive behavioural therapy. She likes to work creatively in order to facilitate the therapeutic process. She believes that people are the experts in their own lives and that her role is to support and empower them to find solutions to their difficulties.
