About Me

I am a Counselling Psychologist, experienced in both group therapy and individual work.Dr.-Andrea-Malden-AKM-Psychology

I completed my training at the University of Surrey with a focus on relational therapy and have conducted research into the experience of suicidality, in particular amongst those diagnosed with bipolar disorder as well as into grief counselling.

I have led therapy groups in the NHS and at Universities and have worked with individuals in Secondary Care Mental Health Services in the NHS in a variety of settings including Health Psychology, Psychotherapy Services and Psychology Mental Health Services in Community Mental Health Teams. I have worked with a range of difficulties including depression, anxiety and panic, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, psychosis, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Adjustment Disorder, grief and complex bereavement, abuse and trauma as well as self-harm and suicidality.
I offer evidence-based psychological therapies for a wide range of emotional, relational, and behavioural difficulties for adults (18+). Being trained and experienced in a range of therapeutic approaches means that in collaboration with you I will aim to identify the approach most suitable to your individual needs and thinking style.

I am originally from Germany and am able to offer psychotherapy in both English and German language.
