Ms Miriam Charalambous



Specialises in

I am a chartered psychologist and I specialise in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). However, being a psychologist I is trained in different therapeutic approaches and am flexible to the client's needs. My philosophy is “what best works for the patient”. I also use mindfulness in my sessions.

I have previously worked at the Priory Hospital, North London, where I practiced both individual and group therapies. I also co-ordinated the CBT team of therapists, where I managed the staff, aided in increasing and improving the services, and dealt with patient care. In addition, I worked at the Royal Free Hospital within the Eating Disorders Unit.

I have been a guest lecturer at Greenwich University and run seminars on CBT, stress management & vicarious traumatisation. I have also done media training and worked with the BBC.

The following are disorders and problems I treat: eating disorders (ie anorexia, bulimia, obesity), depression, anxiety disorders (ie worry, panic attacks), phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), anger management, self-harm (ie cutting, picking, or destructive behaviours), low self-esteem, post-natal depression, perfectionism, stress management, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I work with individuals from the age of 16 upwards.

Growing up, I travelled and lived in a variety of different countries including: Canada, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Australia and Cyprus. This has increased my cultural awareness and created a love of travelling.

I enjoy various sports such as swimming, horse riding,  tennis, skiing, amongst others. I also derive great pleasure from cooking.

Overall, I see life as an adventure and try to get the most out of it by trying new and different things.
