Dr. Florence Little CPsychol

Counselling Psychologist (DPsych)
Counsellor (FdSc)

After completing a degree in counselling from the University of Greenwich, I furthered my training by pursuing a doctorate in counselling psychology at Regent’s University (London). In addition to my title as a counsellor, I have also been awarded the title of ‘chartered psychologist’, which is granted to practitioners who have completed a doctoral program in the United Kingdom.

The modalities covered in these training programs and my professional practice include person-centred therapy, Gestalt therapy, existential-phenomenological therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and second and third wave cognitive-behavioural therapies.

I have several years of experience working with different client groups across various settings in the NHS, the private and the charity sectors.

I have worked with issues such as those listed below, and I recognise that there are many possible overlaps between them. This list is based on my training and experience, but it is not exhaustive. Please let me know if your experience doesn’t seem to fit any of these broad categories and if something else is on your mind.
