DR ROSELLE BIRKBECK

Roselle is a Registered Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society.

Roselle earned her Doctorate at Roehampton University in London. This training has led her through a sequential absorption of existential, humanistic, psychodynamic, cognitive and behavioural therapeutic approaches, culminating in an integrative approach to her practice. Placing relationship at the centre of the process, Roselle develops an individualised approach to meet the specific needs and preference of each client. She views the development of trust in the relationship as central to the healing process and aims to create a safe and nurturing environment in which the client can explore their difficulties and realise their potential. Roselle’s ongoing interest in the effects of trauma has generated incorporation of somatic-orientated therapy to support the body-mind relationship. In practice, this lends her a focus on the embodied experience of each client. She may also incorporate breath-work and somatic techniques to deepen self-awareness or cultivate tolerance for overwhelming feelings.

Roselle’s specialism in eating disorders has remained a passion over the last 10 years. During this time, she has supported peoples’ recovery from Anorexia and Bulimia both within inpatient settings and in private practice. She strongly believes in the persons’ ability to recover and aims to help each client identify their goals and work collaboratively to overcome the barriers in achieving them. Roselle’s doctoral thesis examined patients experiences of residential treatment for Anorexia Nervosa. In placing patients experiences at the centre of this study, she identified the particular qualities of ED treatment delivery that produce the optimal conditions for personal growth and healing.

Roselle is also experienced in working with a range of mental health difficulties including depression, anxiety, substance-abuse, self-harm, relationship issues, family problems, obsessive-compulsive behaviours, emotional and sexual abuse and those struggling with bereavement. Following Roselle’s life-long interest in matters of gender, she has also spent time working in a gender identity clinic, supporting those undergoing gender-transitions. She has continued to attract non-binary, transgender as well as cis people in her private practice. She is sensitive to the heteronormative assumptions of society and the difference of perspective emerging from queer identities.

Roselle lives in East London with her partner and young son. She loves to practice yoga and 5 rhythms dance meditation in her spare time.
