Experienced clinical psychologist
Hello, I’m Dr Gurpreet Kaur, a Charted Clinical Psychologist based in Epsom, Surrey. I qualified from the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at University college London in 2011.
I have worked with people experiencing psychological and emotional difficulties since 2001 and following my training I continued practising in the National Health Service as well as private practice, enhancing my skills in cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance & commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion focussed therapy (CFT), mindfulness-based therapies and Eye movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) as well as a host of other approaches.
Throughout my career I have continued to pursue training in a range of approaches to help the wide variety of clients I’ve seen, whilst enhancing my skills and effectiveness as a therapist.
My specialist areas of expertise are working with adults experiencing PTSD, trauma related difficulties, stress, anxiety and low mood.
I also work with young people experiencing stress, anxiety and low mood.
I have had extensive and specialist training working with many aspects of trauma using trauma focussed CBT and EMDR.
I am competent in working with the many aspects also commonly associated with trauma such as depression, low self-worth, relationship issues, worry, bereavement and loss.
Being from an ethnic background myself, I am keen to work within my clients own cultural and social framework. I believe that psychological work is most effective when the whole person enters the therapy room, not just the part of the person who is struggling.
I offer face to face appointments at my main clinic in Epsom.
Online therapy using Zoom, Skype or Facetime is also available.
