Dr Farah Khalid

Clinical Psychologist

I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). I received both my PhD and Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from The Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London.

I have worked in both NHS and private healthcare settings. I am a skilled practitioner trained in a variety of evidence-based therapeutic approaches including, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), third wave CBT approaches such as Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT), Mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I have specific training in working with psychosis (CBTp), trauma (Trauma-Focused CBT and Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET)) and interpersonal difficulties (Schema Therapy).

I am experienced in working with a range of difficulties such as: depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), anxiety (including general, social and panic), low self-esteem, perfectionism, stress (personal and work-related), worry, rumination, and self-criticism. In addition, I have experience of working with neurodevelopmental disorders, including Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). I have specific expertise in psychosis, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), as well as personality disorders and relational difficulties.

In addition to working with individuals, I have experience of working with couples and families, delivering Systemic Therapy to help individuals communicate their needs with one another, resolve conflicts and find new ways of relating to one another. 

My aim is to work collaboratively with clients offering a warm, trusting, non-judgemental and accepting stance. A shared approach is taken, working towards goals with the ultimate aim of providing meaningful change for clients.
