We are an educational psychology practice comprising a team of highly skilled practitioner psychologists who are experts in assessing the learning needs of children, young people and adults. Our founder and Principal Educational Psychologist, Dr Batul Daulby, created our unique approach, driven by a strong desire to give parents and teaching professionals the answers and direction they need, when a child is struggling at school.
Often, in such situations, there can be confusion, with parents and teachers not sure how to help or where to start. The first step in solving a problem is understanding what you are dealing with, and Batul has developed an assessment methodology that can achieve this. It is the cornerstone of the CF Psychology approach, which our psychologists deliver with objectivity, precision and the greatest sensitivity and care.

Principal Educational Psychologist and founder
Batul’s natural sense of empathy and curiosity meant that she wanted to be a psychologist from an early age. Her undergraduate degree in experimental psychology at Sussex University gave her a strong foundation in evidence-based practice, and her training as a primary teacher at the Institute of Education, London, paved the way for a career in educational psychology. Following three years in teaching, she won a scholarship to study educational psychology at the Tavistock Centre in 2005, achieving a masters with distinction. She then cut her teeth as a local authority EP and gained extensive experience within a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service, which gave her experience and insights normally unavailable to EPs.
Now, in addition to being a loving mum of two, Batul is the principal EP at CF Psychology and an associate lecturer at the Tavistock Centre, teaching on the Educational Psychology doctorate training programme. She is a professional supervisor who regularly writes for journals, educational publications and is a keynote speaker at conferences. In February 2020 Batul was highly commended for her contribution to the quality of psychology practice in the UK by the British Psychological Society.
