C. Comfort Shields, CPsychol, MPhil & MSt (Oxon), MA

WELCOME, MY NAME IS COMFORT. I am a psychotherapist and Director of the Box Tree Clinic in the Harley Street District of Marylebone, Central London. I see adults from any culture, sexuality, gender, and religion for individual and couples therapy.

MY PHILOSOPHY IS that difficult and traumatic events in your life do not have to define you. It is how you interpret those events and what you make of them that defines you. Some amount of emotional trauma is part of human existence, but individuals are best able to work through painful experiences and find meaning in their lives when they receive emotional validation and empathy from their therapists through the process of therapeutic alliance.

"I BELIEVE IN THE INHERENT STRENGTH AND RESILIENCE OF MY CLIENTS. MY GOAL IS TO HELP THEM FLOURISH. IT'S THEIR JOURNEY, AND I'M HERE TO SUPPORT THEM."

 

Training and qualifications

I am registered with the British Psychological Society as a Chartered Psychologist, a graduate of Oxford University, Fielding Graduate University (American Psychological Association Accredited), and completed clinical training at Yale Medical Centre. Clinical psychology training in the United States is of long duration and is comprehensive, preparing psychologists to be psychotherapists, diagnosticians, as well as researchers and teachers. I have a deep understanding of personality development, which I bring to my clients, helping to understand both practical ways to increase wellbeing immediately as well as to work on profound and more long-lasting changes. 

I am a published author, have published peer reviewed articles in leading psychology journals, and presented research at the American Psychological Association's national convention. I have done extensive original research on complex bereavement, attachment, and temporality, and was awarded the Creative Longevity and Wisdom Fellowship from the Institute for Social Innovation. I have spoken publicly on dozens of radio programmes about suicide bereavement.
