Dr Emilie Cassell

Founder & Director

Chartered Psychologist, Surrey

I am a chartered psychologist with over 20 years experience of working with people with emotional and/or behavioural difficulties in the NHS and private sector. Until 2017 I held a senior post in the NHS working with young people with challenging behaviour and managing a team of therapists working in schools. In addition, for the past 5 years I have established a private practice in Surrey offering psychological support to children, young people, adults, couples and families as well as consultation and training to professionals. In February 2017, I set up the Surrey Psychology Practice with Dr Louise Oliver.

As a clinical psychologist I am trained to work with people of all ages and abilities and with a wide variety of issues using evidence-based techniques. In order to do this I draw on:

  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

  • Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT)

  • Systemic Family Therapy

  • Narrative Therapy

  • Solution Focused Therapy (SFT)

  • Psychodynamic Theory

  • Mindfulness


This allows me to tailor my therapeutic approach to each individual or family depending on the nature of their issues, their preferences and what is proven to work scientifically and in my experience.

Professional Status

  • Chartered Clinical Psychologist and Associate Fellow (British Psychological Society)

  • Registered Clinical Psychologist (Health and Care Professions Council)

  • Professional Indemnity Insurance Cover and Enhanced DBS Clearance

Qualifications in Psychology

  • Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (University of Surrey)

  • BSc (Hons) in Psychology (University of Leeds)

  • Certified advanced training courses in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Systemic Therapy

My aim is always to provide and safe and confidential space in which my clients feel able to talk openly about their difficulties and consider new ways of addressing them. I also like to work collaboratively with them to find the approach that suits them best.

If you are concerned about your wellbeing or that of a loved one please feel free to contact me for an informal conversation about how I might be able to help.
