DR ALEXA EDGLEY - CONSULTANT CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST (BSc Hons, PsychD, CPsychol, AFBPsS)
COVID-19 UPDATE: DURING THESE DIFFICULT TIMES I AM STILL ACCEPTING REFERRALS AND CONTINUE TO OFFER PSYCHOLOGICAL SUPPORT BY TELEPHONE OR VIDEO LINK. UNFORTUNATELY, I AM NOT ABLE TO OFFER FACE-TO-FACE APPOINTMENTS AT PRESENT.
I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist with over 18 years experience working in a wide range of clinical settings and with a wide range of mental health problems. I have extensive experience of working with individuals and groups, and in addition to working in private practice, I have worked for many years as a senior clinician for NHS-commissioned mental health services in Surrey and London. I currently work as Consultant Clinical Psychologist/Clinical Lead for a London NHS Trust.
I specialise in COGNITIVE BEHAVIOUR THERAPY (CBT), but also SCHEMA THERAPY, MINDFULNESS, and ACCEPTANCE AND COMMITMENT THERAPY (ACT). I also use generic counselling, humanistic, systemic and psychoanalytic models of psychotherapy to inform my work. I am therefore able to adapt my work to offer a very client-centred approach.
I work with individuals over the age of 16. Clients can self-refer directly or be referred by GPs, Psychiatrists, other health professionals and insurance companies. I also offer supervision to other independent practitioners.
Deciding to embark on therapy can be anxiety provoking and finding the right therapist is one of the most important decisions to make. I offer compassionate, effective and practical support, ensuring that clients feel understood, valued and safe.
I CAN HELP WITH :
WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
"Alexa's style is warmly empathetic yet professionally detached providing me with the ideal atmosphere in which to examine and challenge my behaviours, responses and beliefs. Her extensive experience of 'real world' human interactions gave me a breadth of examples with which to compare and contrast my own. Whilst I found it difficult to face and deal with my issues, working with Alexa is refreshingly effective and for me extremely beneficial"
"Thank you for your fantastic support and advice, which will stay with me forever. Practical, empathetic & invaluable"
"Thank you for helping me live again"
