DR. CARRIE EMERY
Carrie is a Registered Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and a member of the BPS Division of Counselling Psychology.
Carrie was educated at an American School situated in the heart of London, and subsequently went on to complete a BA degree in Psychology from New York University. She then spent a year teaching English in Vietnam before returning “home” to complete an MSc in Research Methods in Psychology at UCL whilst also doing Applied Behavioural Analysis with a toddler with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Following the completion of this degree, Carrie worked at the Institute of Psychiatry conducting interviews with families involved in the youth justice system to help analyse how Functional Family Therapy could help aid families in these situations.
Carrie has moved countries regularly during her lifetime, which has provided her with great cultural sensitivity as well as the experience of being both in the minority and majority. This background prompted her interest in her doctoral thesis which explored the experience of moving in childhood and later impact on identity and relationship formation. Carrie completed her DPsych in Counselling Psychology at City University during which time she worked with individuals of different ages, backgrounds and mental health difficulties. She has worked with individuals, couples and families across the lifespan, addressing difficulties such as eating disorders, substance misuse, depression and anxiety, personality disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Learning Disabilities, and interpersonal difficulties. Carrie has worked in an outpatient NHS Eating Disorders Service for several years, and is also currently in the process of setting up supportive groups for new parents which will provide both up to date research on infant brain development and mindfulness techniques. Being a new mother has engendered a passion to support those who are either considering or having difficulty with fertility, managing body image and mental health both pre- and postpartum, fear of childbirth, and addressing shifting relationships and identities post-partum.
Carrie works from an integrative therapeutic perspective, and is constantly attentive to each client’s personal goals and needs. She aims to deliver individualised therapeutic approaches to foster clients’ own sense of agency and increase sense of self-awareness to facilitate change. Carrie has experience working within in various modalities including CBT, CBT-E, Mindfulness-Based CBT, Humanistic Therapy and Cognitive Analytical Therapy. She has an interest in and draws on Compassionate Focused Therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy and Schema Therapy.
