About Us Riverbank Psychology was founded in 2016 by clinical psychologists Vicky Eames and Mariangels Ferrer. Their partnership is based on a shared interest in systemic and narrative approaches and the wish to provide a high quality clinical psychology service that is underpinned by the strong ethical principles.
“We aim to take a non-blaming approach which acknowledges the challenges faced by people in all walks of life, while respecting and celebrating people’s values, hopes, dreams and resources.”
