Dr Esther Rose

Dr. Esther Rose BSc(Hons), DClinPsy, PGCert, CPsychol, is a Clinical Psychologist, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and Chartered with the British Psychological Society. She has over five years post-qualification experience and works in private practice and part-time for the NHS. She has experience of providing psychological assessment and therapy to a diverse range of clients presenting with psychological difficulties varying in severity and complexity (including depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, anger, deliberate self-harm, family, couple and relationship difficulties, traumatic stress, bereavement, psychosis and personality disorders).

Her specific interest and expertise is in working with individuals who have difficulties managing their emotions and find themselves stuck in unhelpful behaviour patterns which can contribute to relationship issues and dysfunctional ways of coping (e.g. self-harm, substance use, eating disorders, aggression/violence). Dr Rose often uses Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) and has done further training in Schema Therapy and is a Certified Schema Therapist. Additionally, Dr Rose is a Systemic Family Therapy Practitioner having completed a post-graduate certificate in Family & Couples Therapy which is typically used to work with couples and families who are experiencing conflict and transitions in their relationships. Furthermore, she has completed training in Mentalization Based Treatment (MBT) which is a leading treatment for personality difficulties and is particularly helpful in enabling clients to develop better emotional regulation and behavioural control skills, so that they can have more fulfilling and satisfying relationships. She also has sub-specialist skills in the psychological assessment and treatment of adults with ADHD and Autistic Spectrum Disorders having previously worked in two national specialist clinics at the Maudsley Hospital and Institute of Psychiatry in these disorders.

In the NHS Dr Rose works within forensic mental health services in Barnet Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust, predominantly specialising in the assessment and treatment of personality disorder. In this role she provides psychotherapy to individuals with significant history of offending and multiple significant psychological difficulties including personality disorder, psychosis, substance misuse and deliberate self-harm. She also provides consultation to the National Probation Service on the management of high risk violent offenders with personality disorder.
