Dora Accouche

Clinical Psychologist

I am a Clinical Psychologist who works with a variety of age groups, Infant (aged 0-4), Young Child (aged 5-8), Child (aged 9-12), Adolescent (aged 13-18), Adult.

I help those who have experienced traumatic events for example experiences of childhood abuse and neglect, grief and loss, fertility difficulties, major life events. You may be experiencing a sense of low mood, anxiety, parenting difficulties, loss of identity, internal conflict, guilt or loss of connection. Additionally, I have a special interest in exploring adjustment to parenthood.

I appreciate that you may present differently than someone else and as such adjust my therapeutic styles to tailor to your needs and circumstances. I believe that the core of the work relies on the quality of the collaborative therapeutic relationship. This means you and I go on the therapy journey together.   As such, we both agree the frequency of your therapy as well as the length.  We will review your existing circumstances to ensure that you’re receiving the best possible care for your presenting needs.

I love to use humour in my conversations and I’m typically laid back and warm in my approach with an emphasis on creating a respectful space for exploration of difficulties. Clinical approaches Of interest include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), attachment-based approaches, mindfulness, trauma-informed approaches and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) to name a few.

If you’re seeking a clinician who works medium to long term and you know you’re ready for change, then I’m likely a good fit for you.  If you’re struggling to conceive a baby and you need a safe place to cry, I’m the right clinician for you.  Are you struggling as a parent? Feeling as though there is no right way to get ahead? Well, you’re looking at the right profile! I’m likely your clinician.  If you’re feeling frustrated, annoyed or grieving, click the book now button at the top of the menu bar and let’s book a session.
