Dr Jenna Vyas-Lee, Clinical Psychologist
Specialist assessment and intervention for children, young people and their families.
My name is Jenna and I am a clinical psychologist. I completed my undergraduate degree in Chemistry at The University of Birmingham, I then went on to do a conversion course in Psychology. I then moved to London and completed a master’s degree in Mental Health Service and Population Research at The Institute of Psychiatry (part of King’s College London), and after that I was lucky enough to go on to get my Clinical Doctorate at Salomons.
I grew up in Manchester in a really large, Indian and British family, and when I moved down to London after university I probably had the same idea as lots of other 20-something hopefuls looking for a bit of excitement and a change. I can’t believe I’m still here so many years later – I now live in South East London with my two little boys and my husband, Jordan.
I’d love to say that I have some really interesting hobbies, but in all honesty, when I have any spare time in between working and looking after the kids I just enjoy the simple things in life – like seeing my friends for coffee (wine) or going to the cinema. I love being a mum, but with two very young children there are definitely quite a few hard days. Like lots of people, I often turn to ‘slummy mummy’ blogs and social media to try and make those days go by a little lighter!
When it comes to work, I’m usually doing one of three things. The first is working for the NHS in South London where I work with paediatricians and together we help families get their young children off to sleep. Often the children we work with have neuro developmental difficulties such as autism or ADHD, and I absolutely love my job because we can quickly make a real difference to a family’s quality of life through behavioural techniques and sometimes medication. I have also previously worked at two National and Specialist centres (South London and Maudsley and The Evelina Children’s Hospital) for children and adolescents, helping with the diagnosis of neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism spectrum disorder and ADHD.
The second part of my work is teaching students at King’s College London who are training to be child and young people therapists. And then the third bit of my working life involves seeing families privately.
Parenting blogs can be a humorous and lighthearted source of support, but equally, there is room for some really good evidence-based advice. I think it’s fair to say that many child psychologists and authors can be intimidating, and that it’s easy to end up feeling judged, or like you could never live up to what they present as the gold standard of parenting. It can cause a lot of stress, and it’s probably why so many people rely on bloggers to make them feel normal, validated and able to just crack on without worrying about sticking to a rigid set of rules.
All of which is to say, what I’m hoping to be is a bit of a bridge between these two things. I want to help you to parent in the best way that you can and help your children overcome any mental health difficulties they might have, but do it in a way that fits into your day-to-day life. And hopefully I can do that without piling on pressure to be extra special, or making you feel like you need to change who you are.
Jordan Vyas-Lee, CBT and EMDR Therapist
Specialist assessment and intervention of young people and adults.
I’m Jordan. I’ve chosen my career because I truly enjoy helping people overcome complex emotional difficulty. The really enjoyable part is seeing people beginning to flourish once more by the time we say goodbye, and it’s an incredible journey to be part of.
In early adulthood, after studying for an Engineering degree, I struggled for a number of years and eventually stepped forward for professional help. The experience means that I fully understand the feelings associated with being in the patient’s seat. Afraid of whether to open up, unsure of what exactly needs to be said, fully doubting that a stranger might provide solutions.
I’ve since dedicated myself to learning how to provide the highest quality psychological therapy. Putting years of academic learning and professional practice behind me, I’m continually motivated by the idea of providing a quality of service that really is effective for patients. It’s a simple vision that I carried in mind throughout my Undergraduate and Postgraduate studies at The University of Birmingham, King’s College London’s Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN), and University College London.
I’ve now constructed a career practicing, supervising, and teaching psychological therapy. I fulfil these roles in a successful central London NHS team, at King’s College Hospital, and in private practice. I’m also part of King’s College London’s Postgraduate Child and Young Person’s CBT teaching programme, where I tutor professional therapists in training.
My own experiences with anxiety and the learning I’ve undertaken combine to the effect that my clients find our sessions straight forward and fear-free. I make sure to do the work that makes you feel at ease, whilst also ensuring that we’re making the big adjustments required to create significant impact to your emotional health.
Psychological treatment is of course an opportunity to overcome distress that is making life unliveable. Though more than this, many clients move towards more valued and happier lives, feeling more aligned with themselves.Contact Us
