Dr Chris Ludlow



I am a clinical psychologist with over 15 years of clinical experience in child and adolescent mental health. I have worked for organisations such as the NHS, Queensland Children's Hospital, the Anna Freud Centre, and Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. I have worked with a wide range of psychological problems from first-episode psychosis, childhood anxiety, and adolescent criminal conduct. From 2017 – 2019, I was the Deputy Director of a University College London (UCL) clinical training program where I helped to develop a new workforce for child and adolescent mental health services in London and South East England. A career highlight includes training numerous clinicians at Sigmund Freud’s house over a two-year period while working for the Anna Freud Centre. I am currently a Lecturer in Psychology at Swinburne University with interests in evidence-based practice, cognitive behaviour therapy, and developmental psychopathology. I am a board-approved clinical supervisor, Deputy Director of the Swinburne Psychology Clinic, and I am the Unit Convenor for the Psychology of Trauma and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Research.
