Dr Sally Field
is a qualified Clinical Psychologist and the founder of Kingston Psychology Clinic. She is a professionally registered Chartered Psychologist with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC), has chartered membership of the British Psychological Society (BPS), is a full member of the BPS division of clinical psychology, as well as being fully accredited by the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).
Dr Field has worked in the field of adult mental health since 2001, primarily in outpatient settings (both NHS and private sector). She trained and worked within the NHS for ten years in Chelsea and Westminster and founded Kingston Psychology Clinic in 2013. The private practice was thriving so in 2015 Dr Field decided to focus full time on providing this service. Dr Field has broad experience of working with a wide range of presenting difficulties, from milder presentations through to moderate, severe and longer standing difficulties. Dr Field also has specialist training in working with people with difficulties associated with traumatic events/experiences, both in their adult life and childhood. By word-of-mouth Dr Field started receiving requests to see younger adults, so after additional training at Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre the service was expanded to offer services to young people, aged fourteen plus. With her experience and breadth of training Dr Field is able to provide highly qualified help for such conditions as depression, stress, trauma, anxiety and relationship difficulties amongst others.
Dr Field is trained in a diverse range of therapeutic models including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Systemic Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy (primarily focusing on patterns of attachment relationships), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy and Compassion Focused Therapy. She has had significant post qualification training in therapeutic techniques and is experienced in delivering both short term and longer term therapeutic interventions depending on the needs of her clients. As part of her previous NHS role, having lead a team of clinical psychologists, Dr Field was heavily involved in teaching, training and supervision of other mental health professionals. She continues to offer private supervision to other professionals, mainly psychologists. Dr Field is committed to continuing her professional development and keeps her skills up-to-date by engaging in regular training workshops and clinical supervision.
Dr Field believes that with the right support, people can make valuable changes to their lives which can significantly alter their quality of life. She works hard to form a trusting, empathetic and collaborative relationship with people and strives to have a therapeutic relationship on an equal footing. She endeavours to engage people in therapy in a warm and meaningful way, whilst not shying away from compassionate discussion of the important issues.
