Valerie Wendorff

Clinical Psychologist

I am a trained Clinical Psychologist and a Psychotherapist. I have a particular interest in the psycho-organic analysis approach, which is a creative, interactive and multi-dimensional therapeutic method that acknowledges the profound bond between our mind, our emotions and our body.

I work within the NHS and have worked for the last 10 years with various cases of all ages in different settings, such as private practice, schools and non-profit organizations which provided me with firsthand experience with diverse cultural, ethnic and social groups.

I do believe that every person is different and unique, that’s why different modalities are necessary in order to achieve wellness, and thus my approach is multi-dimensional specifically tailored for you, depending on your needs. I can offer you a safe and non-judgmental place where you can find the support you need to express yourself freely, to face and to overcome your struggles. I am a trilingual therapist providing you the possibility to freely express yourself in your own native language, French, Arabic or English.
