Professional statement

Dr Catherine Sykes is a highly-regarded chartered psychologist based in central London. Specialising in the psychology of high achievers, Dr Sykes offers therapy and coaching for professionals in high pressurised careers. She provides in-person appointments but also sees clients across the globe via e-Consultation. Dr Sykes developed a solid reputation in the law and finance sectors due to her thorough understanding of how a demanding career comes with its own unique challenges to mental health, physical health, relationships, and performance.

When guiding her patients, she individually assesses each case and uses a range of approaches such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), hypnosis, neuropsychology and somatic psychology to provide patients with optimal therapy solutions. With these strategies, Dr Sykes helps patients discover the core reasons for their issues and provides the necessary psychological tools to overcome them. Dr Sykes prides herself on her ability to help clients make positive changes so they can be happy, healthy and enjoy and maintain their success. She uses an online brain health assessment service developed by Cambridge Brain Sciences that accurately measure core elements of cognitive function and mood, including memory, attention, focus, reasoning and verbal abilities. This brain health assessment helps to monitor and manage core areas of brain function that are key to mental health and wellness.

Much of her training was at the King's College Hospital. She has sat on NHS boards, worked as a trustee for the charity Pregnancy Sickness Support and lectured at City University, London for 11 years. She is a member of the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC) register and she's an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society (BPS).

I’ve been to see therapists before but never felt they understood me and at times felt judged for my success. This is not the case with Dr Sykes at all. She really understood me and gave me great help to understand myself.

I had 10 sessions with Catherine that changed my life. She helped me to understand myself and guided me through making some important changes.

I learnt more from working with Catherine in 10 sessions than I did with working with a therapist for over a year. She’s great. I recommend her serviced wholeheartedly.
