DR STEFAN PEART

Clinical Psychologist & HCPC Registered Practitioner Psychologist
Pronouns: He/Him

I strive to be a compassionate and sensitive clinical psychologist. I aim to be flexible in my approach, responding to the needs of the children, parents, or families that I support. I greatly value all opportunities to work alongside and support families and young people in their therapeutic journeys towards change. I view each person and family as unique and I strive to maintain a person-centred or family-centred approach, tailoring the support I offer to your unique needs and circumstances. I appreciate collaborative, integrative and strength-based approaches.

QUALIFICATIONS AND MEMBERSHIPS

I am a chartered clinical psychologist who has been working with adults, children, young people, and families in numerous contexts since 2007, and I qualified as a Clinical Psychologist in 2012. I have a Bachelor of Science (BSc Honours) Degree in Forensic Psychology, a Master of Science (MSc Honours) Degree in Applied Psychology, and a Practitioner Doctorate of Clinical Psychology (D Clin Psy).  I am registered with the Health and Care Professionals Council. I have worked across London, Kent and Buckinghamshire in NHS and Local Authority settings inclusive of CAMHS, Adult Mental Health settings, Social Care, Inpatient and hospital settings, court settings and in private practice. I greatly value opportunities to work with diversity of all kinds.

I conduct specialist psychological assessments and therapeutic interventions with children, parents, adults and families for the purpose of understanding and supporting development and needs, psychological wellbeing, relationships, and mental health concerns. As I have worked as a Clinical Psychologist, I have had wonderful opportunities to train in and use a number of therapeutic models. This means I can work specifically with one therapeutic model or integrate techniques from different models too. This really helps me focus on what works best for each of my clients without being too restricted in my practise, because I very feel that all clients are different and have different needs and preferences. I value this flexibility in my work, as it offers me different lenses to understand a problem and how to overcome it. I use Trauma-focused approaches, narrative approaches, Cognitive, Behavioural or Schema approaches, Mentalisation-based approaches, and Attachment focused approaches (such as Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy and therapeutic Life Story work) in his work.

My focus in therapy is always to understand and support positive and adaptive changes where possible or consider a way forward. I am trained to assess and work with developmental conditions such as autism and ADHD, and attachment-related difficulties (which includes post adoption support). I also have a broad range of experience working with mental health difficulties such as trauma (incident specific trauma, development trauma, or complex trauma), anxiety, panic, depression, OCD, relationship difficulties, and family-based difficulties.
