Who is Underpin?


Dr Helen Sinclair - Founder & Director

After graduating from the University of Reading (BSc Psychology - 1st Class Honours), Helen completed her Clinical Psychology Doctorate (DClinPsy) at University College London (UCL). These qualifications, along with over 10 years’ experience of working as a Psychologist within the NHS, have provided Helen with rich and varied expertise in supporting people through the emotional pain of living. Her particular areas of specialism include physical health, adjustment to life challenges and behaviour change. Through models, such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Compassion Focused Therapy, she supports people to rebuild their resilience and pursue a meaningful life.

Helen is a Chartered (British Psychological Society - BPS) and Registered (Health & Care Professions Council - HCPC) Clinical Psychologist. She continues to work within the NHS alongside being the Founder and Director of Underpin Psychological Consultancy Ltd. In both roles, Helen is committed to providing thoughtful and innovative solutions to improving wellbeing.

Helen feels privileged to collaborate with others and co-design meaningful and creative initiatives to support individuals, communities or wider populations. Currently, Helen spends most of her Underpin time working with FRED (thefred.company). Together, Underpin & FRED have utilised their shared values and aims on a number of great projects. The best is yet to come…
