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 Gemma Rowland

Dr Rowland is a caring and empathetic clinical psychologist with over 12 years experience working in various child and adult NHS services, as well as the private sector. Dr Rowland completed her clinical training at the University of East London, including a specialist placement at the Anna Freud Centre working within the trauma and maltreatment service. During her clinical training she gained experience working with children and families, adults, and people with learning disabilities. Her clinical experience ranges from working with mild to moderate difficulties, to severe and enduring mental health problems. She continues to engage in further professional development and training, including recently accessing MBT-A (Mentalisation Based Therapy for Adolescents) training.

Dr Rowland takes a person-centered approach, prioritising establishing a good therapeutic relationship. She focuses on collaboratively building a shared understanding of the problem that has brought someone to therapy, considering what has contributed, and how to move forwards. In her clinical work she draws on a number of therapeutic approaches, including mentalisation based, cognitive behavioural, compassion focused and dialectical behavioural therapies. She works with people across the lifespan who are experiencing challenges including depression, anxiety, trauma, self-harm, and relationship difficulties. In addition to working directly with those with mental health difficulties, she also has significant experience in offering consultation to parents, to help them support their children.

In her NHS role, Dr Rowland regularly offers supervision (including supervision of trainee psychologists), consultation, teaching and training. Her post-qualification experience has primarily been within NHS CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services). She is skilled in offering Neurodevelopmental assessments. She has a passion for working with people to help them recognise patterns in their relationships and how their relationships impact on their self-view. Her special interests include working with Emotional Regulation difficulties, Autism, and Self Harm.

In addition to working in the private sector she works as a Clinical Lead in the Hertfordshire CAMHS Mental Health Support Teams.
