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 Emma Barnett

Dr Barnett graduated from Aston University with an honours degree (BSc) in Psychology in 2001, and spent the next three years working with children and adults across a wide range of settings (inpatient, forensic and outpatient facilities). Following this, she went on to complete her Clinical Psychology doctoral training at Royal Holloway, University of London in 2007. As part of her training she worked with children and adolescents with emotional and/or behavioural difficulties, adults with mental health difficulties and chronic physical health problems, as well as with learning disabilities.

Since qualifying, Dr Barnett’s experiences have encompassed both clinical and research work in a range of care settings (outpatient and inpatient), working with a wide variety of client groups across the whole life course (child, adolescents, adults and older adults), both within the public and private sectors. Dr Barnett currently works within the field of child & adolescent mental health in the NHS, as well as working with clients across the age-range in the private sector.

Over the years, Dr Barnett has developed a specialist interest in working with children, young people and their families; with a keen interest in paediatric psychology. This work encompasses multifaceted presentations of need, where she regularly engages in individual and group, as well as family work. Dr Barnett’s therapeutic approach is heavily influenced by cognitive behavioural theory, but narrative as well as systemic approaches continue to shape and inform her clinical practice.

As well as direct clinical work, Dr Barnett also provides consultation to Paediatricians and other allied health professionals on cases that have a severe or chronic physical condition and associated psychopathology. She regularly facilitates a number of training courses (for allied health professionals) and provides supervision to colleagues during their training. Dr Barnett regularly attends to her own continued professional development.
