Guillermo Rios

Guillermo trained as a clinical psychologist overseas and completed the Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy program at British Psychotherapy Foundation-Anna Freud Centre, University College London. He is a member of the Association of Child Psychotherapists (ACP). He has worked in different settings, including schools and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).

Guillermo’s work is informed by relational and developmental theories. He works alongside children, adolescents, and their families to understand their internal world and to explore the unconscious aspects that may obstruct development. Guillermo’s work adapts to the child’s needs and developmental stage in an age-appropriate way that incorporates both playing and talking. When seeing a child in individual psychotherapy, Guillermo regularly holds meetings with the child and parents to think about their experience of therapy and their expectations.

GGuillermo divides his practice between the NHS, where he works in an Adolescent CAMHS team, and TTC. He works with children and adolescents with longstanding and complex emotional difficulties, and with their parents. He has experience working with children and young people with trauma, depression, and anxiety. Also, he has experienced working with adopted and looked after children.

Alongside his clinical practice, Guillermo leads a seminar with post-graduate students at the Anna Freud Centre.
