Dr Judith Friedman

Dr Judith FriedmanI am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist and am the founder and director of Twenty20 Psychology. I have had almost twenty years’ experience working in the field of mental health difficulties.

My aim is to provide the best quality care to clients by offering a warm, empathic and nurturing environment. I ensure that all clients are offered a therapy that suits their individual needs and endeavours to support them through difficult times. I believe in working together as a team with each individual client. Ultimately, clients are the experts in their world and it is my job to offer therapy which will support them to reclaim happiness and confidence.

I work mainly using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)Schema Therapy; and Mindfulnesss Based Cognitive Therapy, and am currently undergoing an accreditation in Schema Therapy.

After completing my first degree at Manchester University in 1997, I subsequently achieved my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at University College London in 2004.

I have worked in the NHS since 1998 and currently hold the position of Principal Clinical Psychologist in a Community Mental Health Team. I have wide ranging experience working with severe, complex and enduring mental health difficulties, including DepressionAnxietyObsessive Compulsive Disorder, and Bipolar Affective Disorder, amongst others.

I have also held the position of Locum Associate Clinical Tutor at the University of Hertfordshire Doctorate Training programme for Clinical Psychologists. I very much enjoyed this role, in particular, in supporting trainees to meet the best of their abilities in their clinical work.

I thoroughly enjoy my work as a Clinical Psychologist and this is evident to those clients with whom I am privileged enough to have worked.

I hold Chartered status in the Division of Clinical Psychology, British Psychological Society, and am a registered member of the Health Professionals’ Council.
