Venetia is a clinical psychologist and has over 10 years of clinical experience. She has specialist training in cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) as well as dynamic interpersonal therapy (DIT). Her training in different approaches allows her to work flexibly and be driven by her client's individual needs and goals drawing on different treatment models, including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioural, compassionate-focused, dialectical behavioural, and schema therapy. In particular, she can adapt the style of her therapy so sessions are focused on either practicing coping strategies aiming to help her clients deal with unhelpful thoughts and feelings and/or reflecting on past and present to help clients access buried emotions and identify recurrent patterns which hinders them from accessing their full potential.
In her NHS practice, Venetia has specialised in working with complex depression, anxiety, OCD, and trauma as well as relationship difficulties, including marriage problems, separations, infidelity, bereavements, and unhelpful relational patterns and attachment styles. She has worked with adults, adolescents, couples, and families.
Venetia started her career by working with clients with substance/alcohol dependency and/or psychosis in forensic and community settings.
She is now the co-ordinator of relational therapies in a large psychological therapy service in East London where she acts as a team leader and offers clinical supervision and training to staff and trainees. She has presented in several conferences and published in academic journals while she is also a visiting lecturer in the Doctorate programme in Counselling Psychology at the Metropolitan University.Back
