Dr Kelly Dickson

I am passionate about supporting people to improve their mental health and psychological well-being. I trained in applied psychology and sociology before qualifying as an integrative psychotherapist, counsellor and coach. I have been working in evidence-based policy and practice for over 10 years, at UCL, and have experience of delivering mental health services in community-based settings. I grew up in Holloway, North London, and now live in Hertfordshire, commuting into the city. As a London-based practitioner, I provide 1:1 psychotherapy in Bloomsbury WC1, Islington N1, as well as online. As an academic, I undertake and continue to stay up-to-date with the latest research trends in psychotherapy and mental health.
