Dr Chloe Thompson Booth
I am a Clinical Psychologist with a broad range of experience working in the NHS, charities and the private sector. I have supported individuals, couples and families facing a range of emotional and psychological problems, working with them to overcome their challenges and move towards living the life they want.
I know how daunting it can be to seek help when life feels challenging. I offer a down-to-earth, open and collaborative style of working, respecting your experiences and your wider environment. My therapeutic approach is integrative and led by your needs as well as by the current evidence base for effective interventions. I have experience in using models such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT), Eye-movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness. I am interested in mind-body links and keep these in mind throughout therapeutic work.
I trained as a Clinical Psychologist at University College London (UCL). Before my clinical training, I completed a PhD in Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology (UCL) and was involved in a range of mental health research projects (at King's College London, London School of Economics and Political Science, Imperial College London and Yale University). The majority of my clinical experience has involved working with adults, addressing difficulties such as low mood, worry and anxiety, panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), perfectionism, difficulty managing emotions, low self-esteem, post-traumatic stress disorder, and relationship difficulties.
In addition to my work in general adult mental health, I am experienced in working with Perinatal Emotional Wellbeing and supporting individuals and couples in their journey into and through the early years of parenthood. Common difficulties during this time include: Feeling low or anxious in pregnancy or postnatally, fears around birth and/or recovering from a traumatic or difficult birth experience, managing the transition into parenthood, feeling disconnected from baby, and changes in relationship as a couple plan for and enter pregnancy and parenthood. I currently hold an NHS role as a Highly Specialist Psychologist in a Perinatal Mental Health Team.
In summary, I am a qualified and experienced psychologist who offers a warm, safe and non-judgmental therapeutic space. I passionately believe in making sure that you feel heard, understood, and that we work together to improve your psychological wellbeing.
