Dr. Valerie Suarez

Counselling Psychologist


Chartered Counselling Psychologist (CPsychol, BSc (Hons), DPsych)

Dr. Suarez is a chartered counseling psychologist registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC).

She has over seventeen years of experience working across a range of NHS settings with adults presenting with a wide variety of difficulties (e.g. chronic illness, depression, anxiety, and relationship difficulties). Her clinical experience and her doctoral training exposed her to a broad spectrum of therapeutic approaches, skills, and tools.  This enables her to tailor her interventions to best fit her client’s individual concerns and needs.

Dr Suarez is a warm and skilled practitioner whose strength and passion lie in building a strong therapeutic alliance with her clients, helping them feel safe enough to explore, identify, and work with their difficulties.

Her special interest is in third-wave cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT); namely mindfulness, Acceptance, and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Compassion Focussed therapy (CFT), and schema therapy.

She is committed to continuous professional development (CPD) and has recently passed a random CPD audit by the HCPC


Dr Suarez was awarded a 1st class BSc(Hons) in Psychology and Counselling and a Practitioner Doctorate (PsychD) in Psychotherapeutic & Counselling Psychology from the University of Surrey.
