Dr Sara Kutereba

Dr Kutereba qualified as a clinical psychologist in 2015, prior to which she had a psychology career in research, completing her PhD in developmental psychopathology in 2010 (something which informed her work as a television presenter for a groundbreaking psychology programme at the same time).

Since qualifying as a clinical psychologist, Dr Kutereba has continued her interest in developmental psychology working across a range of child and adolescent settings, particularly with those who are in care, on the edge of care or unable to access mainstream schools or mental health services. Dr Kutereba has worked both for NHS and Local Authority services. Currently Dr Kutereba works in an adolescent inpatient unit, completing assessments and interventions with young people with severe mental health issues, many of whom are in care.

Dr Kuterebas broad experience enables her to complete the full range of assessments pertinent to family/civil
and criminal law.
