Abisayo Adekeye
Psychological therapist and trainee clinical psychologist
Specialist Profile Picture 360X246

Abisayo Adekeye is a psychological therapist and trainee clinical psychologist, specialising in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for the treatment of mood disorders. Abisayo joined Priory in 2019, having worked within the Birmingham Talking Therapies mental health teams in both individualised and group settings.

As well as pure CBT, Abisayo incorporates techniques from other third-wave cognitive behavioural approaches such as acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), behavioural activation for depression (BA), compassion-focused therapy (CFT) and dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), which includes mindfulness. She also has also specialist training in enhanced CBT from the Centre of Research for Eating Disorders.

Abisayo is a member of the Association of Child and Adolescent Mental Health (ACAMH), the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP), pending accreditation.

Training

Abisayo graduated with a Psychology Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Birmingham in 2016. She later completed her Post-Graduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (with distinction), and is currently completing doctoral training in Clinical Psychology at the Universities of Coventry and Warwick.

As part of her commitment to updated evidence-based practice, Abisayo has also completed skills training in DBT, and continues to undergo training to supplement her certificate in Applied CBT for Children and Adolescents, with the British Psychological Society, London. 

Research interests (if applicable)

Abisayo is greatly interested in child and adolescent cognitive neuropsychology and the neural impact of complex trauma. She is currently completing a doctoral thesis exploring the relationships between specific autistic traits and the development of mood disorders.

It is a real privilege to be able support people therapeutically at a time when many feel at their most vulnerable, and I never take that for granted. As such, I work hard to establish a supportive therapeutic alliance between myself and my clients. Working with both children and adults, I prioritise regular training and the development of my practice in order to offer evidence-based approaches and individualised models of therapy. People are so much more than the problems that they face, and I work to ensure that the people who I work with know that, and get the opportunity to rediscover it for themselves.
