Highly Specialist Clinical Psychologist   working with young people, adults and families in Surrey to treat a wide range of difficulties.

-Linda Travis-



I am a Chartered Psychologist and Registered Clinical Psychologist working with young people, adults and families across a wide range of difficulties. I have almost a decade of experience in the NHS in both a research and clinical capacity working across a range of services including community, inpatient and specialist services. My working week is currently split across both my NHS work  as a Senior/ Highly Specialist Clinical Psychologist supporting families in North West Surrey and my private practice. 


I offer a non-judgemental, safe and confidential space to think about the difficulties my client may be experiencing, what may have caused them, and what may be the best way to manage them. I am trained to administer complex assessments and to identify and offer the most indicated evidence based treatment. Whilst I practice predominantly in the cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) approach, I am trained in several different therapeutic modalities and value and incorporate systemic, psychodynamic and solution-focused approaches appropriate to meet the particular needs and values of the individual or family that I am working with.

The types of difficulties I support individuals and families to manage include, but are not limited to:

Low mood and depression

Anxiety disorders including generalised anxiety, panic attacks and phobias

Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) 

Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD)

Gender dysphoria and other difficulties relating to gender and sexual identity*


Emotion regulation difficulties and anger management

Sleep Problems

Interpersonal/Relationship difficulties

Parenting advice and support


I am also experienced in comprehensive and detailed cognitive assessments, the assessment of autism and pre and post diagnostic support for autism and  attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
