PsychWorks Associates believe in the importance of emotional wellbeing in the recovery process, be it as a result of physical or emotional trauma. Research has shown that understanding the emotional journey is an important factor in achieving the best possible outcomes, whether at the individual, family or professional team level. This is true of the rehabilitation process, as well as engagement in therapy to understand oneself better.
We are uniquely a case management-informed and driven service, understanding the litigation context that surrounds our clients and their families. This is fundamental to our approach and we operate with the principles of good and regular communication, accountability for the work we do, and proactive, systemic involvement.
All our Associates are registered with HCPC or other recognised psychotherapy bodies, have up-to-date DBS checks, appropriate insurances and receive regular supervision.
We cover London, the Home Counties and the Bristol region.
PsychWorks Associates Director
Dr Shabnam Berry-Khan
PsychWorks Associates was set up by Shabnam Berry-Khan, a Clinical Psychologist and Case Manager. She has almost 20 years of extensive experience across the client lifespan and with various psychological difficulties, from anxiety management to trauma, depression and adjustment to loss. Shabnam has been a Case Manager for over 10 years and her professional experiences in this role shape the kind of service she would want to see in a psychotherapy service.
Shabnam completed her doctoral clinical training at the University of Bristol and has since developed strong professional links with fellow psychologists and case managers, as well as solicitors and allied health professionals alike over a number of years. She has worked in a range of settings within different roles in the NHS, as well as in private practice as a case manager and treating psychologist.
Shabnam sits on the Board of Directors for MindFood, an ecotherapy charity in Ealing that supports people with depression, anxiety and stress to improve their wellbeing through gardening and horticulture. See more at www.mindfood.org.uk.
I have made a number of referrals to PsychWorks Associates, and each time I have been impressed by the quality of input and professionalism the Directors and Associates have provided.
There have been some tricky issues, for example around safeguarding, that we have navigated around together and I particularly valued their ability to be 'on-call' during these times. I choose to re-refer to them because they are cost-efficient, especially in comparison to their competitors.
I recommend PsychWorks Associates to any case manager, client or solicitor.
