Dr Irina Yelland

Hello! Nice to meet you. 

I am a Consultant Clinical Psychologist with over 20 years of experience working with children, adolescents and adults with a wide range of emotional, neurodevelopmental and mental health difficulties.

My approach is warm, friendly and professional, and I would never judge you or your problems, no matter how big or small they are.

The most significant part of therapy is the therapeutic relationship, so it’s important to me that you feel listened to, understood, supported and encouraged.

How can I help?

If you are experiencing emotional or mental health difficulties, such as anxiety, depression or feeling overwhelmed, I am here to offer you my professional expertise. If you are a parent of a child or adolescent who is struggling, I am happy to offer my support to you or your child. For an extensive list of difficulties I work with, please see here: Therapy for Adults or Therapy for Children & Adolescents. 

During the initial appointment we will explore what you are struggling with. We will then decide together on an individualized plan for your therapy sessions. Everyone is unique, and the support I offer will be tailored to you and your needs. I offer evidence-based interventions that have been proven to be clinically effective.

My Experience

I am currently working as a Consultant Clinical Psychologist in private practice and also as a Director of Yelland Psychology Services Ltd. Over the last 20 years, I have worked mainly for the NHS for in five different NHS Trusts as well as in private and voluntary organizations.
