Qualifications and Biography

Dr Stella Christofides completed the Doctoral Training in Clinical Psychology in Bristol in 2007 and has worked with clients in emotional distress or with developmental difficulties for over 15 years. Stella was Principal Clinical Psychologist for a local authority managing a team of qualified psychologists before working full time in Independent Practice.

A Clinical Psychologist is a mental health professional who is interested in each person’s unique story to help understand what has contributed to the current situation and what has helped to keep going so far. You’ll be asked about what has happened in your life, the impact of these events, and about your strengths and qualities, not what is ‘wrong’ with you. Clinical Psychologists are trained to use a variety of recognised therapeutic approaches and tailor support based on your needs and preferences.

Additional professional qualifications held include Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Systemic Family Therapy Foundation,  Autism Assessments and Expert Witness training. Stella presents at conferences, teaches trainee psychologists and has published research and a book chapter.
