Dr Roberta Babb

Director and owner of Third Eye Psychology

Dr Roberta Babb (BSc Hons, MSc, DClinPsych, CPsychol CSci AFBPsS) is the Director and owner of Third Eye Psychology. Her practice offers clinical, forensic and organisation psychological services which include coaching, consultation, supervision (individual and group), training and mentoring, assessments, and therapy.

She has a focused interest in positionality and how these aspects of identity show up in therapy and supervision. Her view is that identity around difference can be formed by lived experience of being othered. Writing this course led from observation about how many therapists can be fearful or wary of explicitly attending to difference and how this manifests (sometimes as a power dynamic) in therapy or supervision. Through her writing and teaching, Dr Roberta Babb attends emphatically to addressing intersectional competence so that therapists and supervisors are better equipped to adopt explicitly to anti-discriminatory practice.

Although Dr Babb’s clinical practice is significantly influenced by psychodynamic theory, she flexibly draws on a diverse range of theoretical frameworks to inform her work. This enables her to provide integrative and comprehensive assessments which identify problem areas, potential areas for change, and integrative psychological formulations or understandings (both via individual and group processes). This process offers a deeper insight into both the global picture of the presenting difficulties/issues and the finer details, and provides a well-formed platform for the implementation of evidence-based interventions which can effect sustainable change at the conscious and unconscious level.

Dr Babb is registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) (Division of Clinical Psychology, Division of Forensic Psychology, and Division of Clinical Psychology Leadership and Management Faculty) and an approved Practitioner Psychologist with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC). She is also a Member of the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC). Her qualifications include a BSc (Hons) degree in Psychology, a MSc in Forensic Psychology and a Professional Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. She holds postgraduate diplomas in Clinical Supervision and Consultancy, Organisational Development and Executive Coaching, psychodynamic psychotherapy (foundation) and a professional qualification in forensic psychodynamic psychotherapy. She has attended specialist training events for group therapy and supervision. For the supervision course, Dr Babb teaches group supervision and Gestalt approaches, as well as facilitating on difference and intersectional identity in supervision.
