OUR STORY

Back in 2013, as I was wrapping up my masters in counselling and psychotherapy, I got to thinking what i wanted to call my clinic. I enlisted the help of many friends and family and no matter the name suggestion, I kept circling back to "but that doesn't sound like you're putting your psychology first", or "that doesn't emphasis how important psychological health is", until my husband came up with Psychfirst and the rest is history.

Having studied psychology since 2008, I knew how important mental health was and still is. I also knew how detrimental a mental illness and psychological injury can be and the implication of that on all areas of our wellbeing. 

 

Enduring births, deaths and marriages; life's peaks and troughs; losses, grief, gains and changes; as well as a pandemic alongside my clients has reiterated to me that the psyche and in turn, our bodies bear the burden and I'm ever more sure that our psychology must be put first.

 

Fast-forward to 2024, I have teamed up with an esteemed colleague of mine to bring you a new space, a new brand and a new face. 

 

I've enlisted the help of Mr Chadi Abbas, Psychologist with a massive background in Educational and Developmental Psychology, and EMDR, as the new Co-Director of Psychfirst, and i'm pleased to be able to share this brilliantly wonderful practitioner with you. Chadi is a Principal Psychologist and has a wealth of knowledge as a both a practitioner and a now ex-educator. 

Together, my esteemed colleague and I invite you to join our story, and perhaps, allow us to join yours.
