Thanks for your interest in joining the Collective

We’d love to hear from you if you are a clinical or counselling psychologist, or psychotherapist who has experience of working within the NHS, 3 years’ post qualification experience and training in a specific modality. Feel free to contact us to discuss this further.


The Collective, rather than being a practice, is a collective of independent practitioners who share similar values and ideas about working with families. We’re a mix of perinatal and child/family psychologists and we are all progressive in our thinking, highlight systemic issues affecting families, and have an interest in how structural factors can impact on mental health. In many ways, we lone wolves who like to work as a team!


Managed by Emma Svanberg and supported by Business and Community Manager Laura Grace, we meet once a week for support, training and case discussion and have an active Whatsapp group. Emma provides referrals, peer supervison, admin support and marketing support and in return we ask for a percentage of your session fee and a commitment to seeing Collective clients. We work collaboratively, all major decisions are made as a team and you will find us a very warm, supportive and often irreverent group!

If you are still interested in joining, please provide the following to
– CV
– Proof of qualification and registration
– Specialist interests and client group you’re interested in working with
– Any areas of practice (whether that is clinical practice or additional work such as social media, workshops, training, public speaking) you are keen to develop
We will contact you for further discussion. We open our books to new clinicians twice a year, so don’t worry if you don’t hear from us immediately.
