Dr Gail Wingham
Senior Clinical Psychologist
Hello, I am a Doctor of Clinical Psychology with over 10 years of experience providing adults, adolescents and children with therapeutic interventions to address all aspects of mental health challenges.
My clinical practice has predominantly been in the NHS, but I have also worked for third sector organisations (charities) and for private clients.
In my therapy, I use a compassionate and integrative approach, using evidence-based models such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT), Narrative Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Eye-movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness.
This allows me to provide highest quality therapy, supported by clinical evidence, that is perfectly tailored to an individual’s needs and aspirations. This includes managing stress and wellbeing in the work place and home, addressing problems with mood e.g. low self-esteem, low mood/motivation/depression, panic attacks, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), extreme worry/General Anxiety Disorder (GAD), and working with more complex, long-standing difficulties such as trauma, history of abuse, addiction and psychosis.
I have a warm, non-judgemental and empathetic style that will help you overcome the difficulties you are facing. We will work towards a life that reflects your goals and values; a life that you deserve. I have worked with people from many diverse walks of life and cultural backgrounds and I have always placed my clients in the centre of their experiences and recovery.
Alongside my private practice, I work with complex clients in NHS Inpatient Forensic Services, provide supervision to psychologists, give academic teaching to trainee psychologists, and sit as a non-executive board member of a London-based mental health charity (Brent, Wandsworth and Westminster Mind). I am registered with the Health Care Professionals Council (HCPC) which upholds professional codes of practice and qualification.
A recent testimonial from a Male, Mid-30s, Manager
I was hugely impressed by how Gail/Dr Wingham supported me - both in crisis and with longer term issues. She stands out from her peers through a rare combination of three key attributes:
First and foremost, she is an instinctively kind and caring human; Full of natural compassion and drive to help others.
Second, she’s exceptionally intellectually capable, obvious both from her top tier qualifications and immediately clear when you work with her.
Third, her her experience with some of the greatest challenges in her field lends her a unique and truly valuable perspective compared to other therapists I’ve worked with.
