Dr Riddhi Prajapati
Clinical Psychologist (she/her)
I am a qualified clinical psychologist with over 10 years’ experience working across the NHS in community and inpatient settings, as well as the third sector and private sector. I have been described as warm, thoughtful and supportive. Alongside my clinical work, I offer supervision for peers, mentoring for aspiring and trainee psychologists from racially minoritised backgrounds, consultation and training for staff working in community services.
I am a second-generation British Indian woman from a working class background. My personal and professional experiences have shaped my passion for working with individuals in a way that values and affirms their layered identities, lived experiences, and social and cultural contexts, through a non-pathological and trauma-informed lens.
I integrate knowledge from a range of psychological approaches including Compassion-Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment therapy, Narrative Therapy, the Power Threat Meaning Framework, Internal Family Systems, and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (Level 1). Through my sessions, I aim to offer a compassionate and respectful therapeutic space that enables individuals to build upon their own strengths and move towards a life of meaning and harmony.
