Dr Sarah Crowley
Drawing on my 10 plus years experience working across psychological services, I am able to offer a highly tailored approach to support others to explore and develop their own psychological well-being.
Alongside my own private practice, I work for a prestigious private hospital in North West London offering neuropsychological assessment and cognitive rehabilitation to clients with neurological conditions within a residential unit. Cognitive rehabilitation may involve strategies to overcome or compensate for difficulties in areas such as memory or planning skills, however an equally important part of my work is to provide psychological therapy and adjustment support to my clients and their families.
In my private clinic I offer both neuropsychological assessment and psychological therapy. I have experience working with a broad range of psychological difficulties such as, anxiety, stress, depression, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, OCD, bereavement and trauma.
I value the importance of the therapeutic relationship and focus on creating a warm, safe and trusting environment where people are able to explore their difficulties and feel supported. My aim is to help people develop an understanding of their difficulties in a way that generates new perspectives and possibilities for change that feel personal and meaningful. I have respect for people’s individuality and always aim to work collaboratively to help people build on their own unique strengths and resources.
The Models I Work With
In my therapeutic work, I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic therapy, Mindfulness, Behavioural Activation, Schema therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT) and Systemic therapy to inform my approach. The model that we choose to work with together will depend on what you are hoping to gain from therapy and the type of difficulties you are experiencing. I always aim to provide a tailored approach and I can work flexibly to either use models in their ‘pure’ form or to integrate different models and techniques, depending on a person’s individual needs.
