Sarah Rogers,  Clinical Psychologist

I am a Clinical Psychologist, with a passion for working with children and young people.  My career in the NHS began in 1998 and I achieved my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 2004.  Since then, I have worked full-time in an NHS child and adolescent mental health service. I am now in a position where I feel I can make a valuable contribution to the mental health needs of children and young people referred through the private healthcare system. 

I have skills in assessment and treatment of a broad range of mental health difficulties, teaching and training, consultation, supervision, and research.  I describe myself as an integrative therapist, as my training and experience has equipped me with skills drawn from a range of therapeutic models (behavioural, cognitive-behavioural, and systemic).  Throughout my work, my underlying principle is to be flexible and creative, and to work with the needs and capabilities of each individual child.  I enjoy working in a job where each day can be both challenging and rewarding, and find it very humbling to be a part of a client’s journey towards recovery. 

Anxiety disorders are my area of special clinical interest and I also enjoy working with individuals who have autistic spectrum disorders.  Recently, I have become interested in the experiences of individuals who live with dissociative states/disorders (caused by significant childhood trauma).

Outside of work I enjoy the simple pleasures in life, including pets, gardening, cross-stitching, and (most importantly) a cup of tea and a slice of chocolate cake.
