Welcome to Hendon Psychology

Are you…

Stressed out?

Just not feeling good?

Feeling tense about a relationship?

Trapped in a situation, struggling to find a way out?

 Overwhelmed with where the world is going?

Feeling confused?

Stuck in life?


In these fast-paced times, it’s hard to find a moment to breathe and think clearly!

Sometimes it helps to access a safe space to think, and re-evaluate life.

My name is Dr Claire Franklin, clinical psychologist, and I have over 15 years of experience of working in NHS psychology services.


Types of Clients

I have supported children, adolescents, and adults experiencing a wide spectrum of psychological issues, including depression, anxiety, neurodiversity, learning disability, self-harm, and dementia. I like to work collaboratively with my clients. My specialist interests include trauma, family carers, post-diagnostic support, and dealing with life-limiting and neurological conditions, but really, I like to see the person in front of me, rather than the issue.

Types of Therapy

I use several evidence-based therapeutic approaches with my clients, for example cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance & commitment therapy (ACT), systemic (family) therapy, narrative therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and compassion focused therapy. I draw from many psychological theories, including current understandings of trauma, attachment, and neuropsychology. 


I have worked in several NHS services in London and Hertfordshire: 

Two brain injury rehabilitation services (2.5 years), three learning disabilities services (2.5 years), an older adults/memory service (6 years), an adult community mental health service (9 months), a talking therapies/IAPT service (1 year), and a child and adolescent mental health service (6 months). I currently work part-time at the ME/Chronic Fatigue service at the Royal Free Hospital.


My therapy practice is based in NW London, and I also offer virtual appointments. I charge £120 per 1-hour session. The cancellation notice is 36 hours. I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). 

I am also a provider for several health insurance companies (Aviva, AXA, Cigna, Freedom Health, and WPA).
