Dr Valeria Lowing

Clinical Psychologist

Hi, I am Val, a Clinical Psychologist passionate about enhancing people’s quality of life and strongly committed to improving people’s mental wellbeing. I have over 10 years of experience in the field of Psychology working for the NHS, charities and privately.


How I can help:

It is not always easy to start therapy; it is my first priority to make this process easier for you. I offer a collaborative, safe and confidential space to discuss your difficulties, help you to gain understanding of your problems and support you to make helpful changes. I focus on a person-centred approach and chose to work holistically and integrative across many therapeutic approaches. My aim is to tailor the psychological support according to individual needs, goals and life values. I value working with adults, children and families from different backgrounds, faiths and ethnicities. 

I have completed various university degrees in the field of Psychology and a series of specialist training including Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) assessment and diagnosis, severe adult mental health, perinatal mental health and paediatric eating problems and neuropsychology. Other presentations I can help with are the following:


Depression, Trauma (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), Anxiety Disorders (e.g., generalised, social or health related), Panic Attacks, Phobias, Stress, Sleep Problems, Relational problems, Bereavement, Self-esteem, Obsessive and Compulsive Disorder, Perinatal Wellbeing.


Therapeutic Approaches: 

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Narrative Therapy, Accelerated Trauma Therapy (ATT), Identity Focused Intervention: self-esteem, assertiveness and life transitions, Systemic Therapy,


ADHD screening and full diagnostic assessment:

ADHD can be understood as a persistent pattern of impulsivity, inattention and/or hyperactivity that interferes with functioning or development and has been present since childhood.


What would the assessment involve?


  • An initial consultation to discuss your concerns and consider the suitability for a full assessment

  • Completion of questionnaires to differentiate from other presentations

  • ADHD assessment based on your account and the account of someone else who knows you well

  • Feedback session

  • Written Report 

  • Follow up session and treatment recommendations
