Dr. Ukwuori-Gisela Kalu

Doctor in Clinical Psychology, specialised in addiction and trauma.

I have a strong interest and experience in both clinical work and research, and I have worked clinically with children, adolescence, individuals with Neuro-developmental disorders (e.g. Autism Spectrum Disorder), individuals with intellectual disabilities, older adults and adults of working age. I have worked in a variety of settings and countries, including Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, Mexico, Argentina, Tanzania and Nigeria. I am trained and able to employ a wide range on specialist psychological interventions, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Interpersonal Psychological Therapy (IPT), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and trauma focused Cognitive Therapy (tfCT). I moved back to Nigeria in May 2016, and I currently work as Consultant Clinical Psychologist in Private Practice. However, I continue to maintain strong links to the UK (i.e. possible referral pathways).

My qualifications are:

  • BSc (Hons) in Psychology from the University of the West of England, Bristol, United Kingdom.
  • MSc in Neuropsychology from Bristol University, United Kingdom.
  • Doctorate in Clinical Psychology (DclinPsy) from the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neurosciences (IoPPN), King's College London, United Kingdom.
