Dr Lindsey Wood, Clinical Psychologist
Lindsey is a Clinical Psychologist with over 15 years of experience working both within the NHS and privately.
Within the NHS, Lindsey has worked in a child and adolescent mental health (CAMH) team, a specialist team working with adopted and fostered children, at the Royal Marsden Hospital with children and adults with a cancer diagnosis, a specialist trauma service for adults, and a specialist team undertaking court assessments with children and families. Outside of the NHS, Lindsey has worked for an adoption agency, an agency supporting families where a child has experienced a brain injury, and also for a childhood bereavement charity.
Lindsey is qualified to work with physical health and emotional needs across the lifespan, but has specialised in working with children, adolescents and families. In particular, she has expertise in working with young people and families around the impact of loss and trauma, attachment difficulties and chronic physical health difficulties. She also has specialist experience of working with looked after and adopted children, and the care system around them.
Lindsey works in an integrative way, which means she draws upon a number of different therapeutic ideas and techniques (e.g. cognitive-behavioural therapy, narrative, systemic and attachment approaches), and adapts her therapeutic style to best fit for each child, young person and family she works with. Lindsey has had specialist training in treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder (i.e. EMDR, TF-CBT, and NET), and has experience of using these approaches with both children and adults.
Lindsey has a Clinical Psychology Doctorate (DClinPsy) from Royal Holloway, University of London. She has a Masters (MSc) in Health Psychology and a degree (BSc) in Psychology.
