Dr David Hambrook
Director of Clinical Psychology
I am a Principal Clinical Psychologist and Director of Psychology for Bloomfield Health, with more than 15 years’ experience working in the UK National Health Service and in private practice. In addition to my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology I have completed further post-graduate training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), behavioural couple therapy, and Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT). I am registered as a Clinical Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), hold Chartered Clinical Psychologist status with the British Psychological Society (BPS), and hold full accreditation with the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP). I have worked in a range of clinical settings with patients across the lifespan, from childhood through to old age. In my current clinical work I specialise in helping adults struggling with common mental health issues such as depression, anxiety disorders, body image problems, and low self-esteem, for example. I have a particular interest in LGBTQ+ mental health. In addition to my passion for helping patients achieve their goals in therapy, I enjoy providing clinical supervision for colleagues and helping them deliver the best care possible whilst developing their skills and potential. In my NHS role with the South London & Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust I am responsible for leading a large team of psychological therapists. I have written book chapters and journal articles in leading peer reviewed scientific journals. I regularly teach colleagues and students attending clinical training programmes to doctoral and post-doctoral level. I consider myself a sincere, encouraging and responsive psychologist and I take great pleasure in working collaboratively with people to help them achieve their goals and to thrive.
