Kirsten Miller

Clinical Psychologist

I am a Clinical Psychologist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). I work with adults across the lifespan, and I am experienced in working with a wide variety of mental health issues. My area of interests include: PTSD and complex trauma; coping with divorce and separation, including abuse in intimate partnerships; and the distress that is felt during major life transitions.

As a systemically trained psychologist, I work from an interactional perspective, and look at the person as a system (self) and the person within a system (the environment including family units, social influences and the larger system as a whole), and how these systems perpetuate ineffective patterns of behaviour. I believe that regardless of the perspective a therapist works from, the relationship between us and our clients is the most important tool for change.



My Experience

I completed my training to become a Clinical Psychologist in South Africa. I spent a further two years working as an intern and in community service in South Africa before beginning a private practice in Johannesburg.

During my work I have worked at the largest psychiatric hospital in South Africa, Weskoppies where I provided services to both inpatients and outpatients who were impacted by severe mental health problems. My experience included working with forensic inpatients who were wards of the state, personality disorders, complex mood disorders, psychotic disorders, geriatric psychology and individuals suffering from neuropsychological issues.

I have also worked at the third largest hospital in the world, Chris Hani Baragwanath in Soweto. There I was part of the Child, Adolescent and Family Unit where I worked with children and their families both as inpatients and outpatients. My experience included working with paediatric burns, and paediatric medical and surgical patients who had suffered significant medical trauma. I also worked with many outpatients and their families who were experiencing issues from neurodevelopmental problems (ADHD, Autism, Developmental Disorders); children who had suffered from significant interpersonal trauma; complex mood disorders and suicide attempts; support groups for teens and parents, as well as family therapy.

After working at large hospitals I opened a private practice in Johannesburg where I worked with adults experiencing mental health difficulties. I worked alongside a team of other medical and mental health professionals.

Since moving to the UK I have run my own practice from Salisbury. I work both online and in person.
