For highly functioning professionals struggling with BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder)

Many professionals benefit from guidance and therapy. For example, you might be someone who is


  • highly functioning

  • Holding a high profile job

  • Successful in you career


Yet you suspect that you might be suffering from BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder) or you have been diagnosed with BPD.


How would you recognise this and how might it be affecting your life?


Perhaps you

  • Have difficulty maintaining personal intimate relationships

  • Are not clear about what healthy relationships look like

  • Are struggling with attachment issues

  • See the world in black-and-white, without compromises

  • Find it difficult to cope with stresses

  • Use alcohol, drugs, self-harm, unprotected sex, or other unhelpful behaviours to try to manage your emotions

  • Suffer extremes of emotion, that you find it hard to control

  • Are frightened to ask for help because of the associated stigma

  • Lack the flexibility to be able to arrange therapy

About Dr Liliya Korallo

I am a  chartered psychologists, specialising in CBT/DBT and  based in London. I have a Doctorate in Psychology from Middlesex University and an MSc in Culture and Mental Health from University College London. 


I also have a Post Graduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy from New Buckinghamshire University. I am multilingual, speaking English, Russian and Ukrainian.


I am the only Russian speaking psychologist in London Liverpool Street, City, Central London.


I also see private clients at my clinic at 63 St Mary Axe, EC3A 8AA, office 132.

I have extensive experience working with borderline personality disorder (BPD) and Psychosis which are my specialities. I previously worked in a private hospital in north London (The Priory) for four years, where I ran a DBT group.


I also ran Cognitive Behavioural Therapy groups and assisted a DBT team working with children. I work with individual patients with a range of presentations, including depression, anxiety, phobias and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Recently I  have worked in the NHS, with the IMPART team, specialising in helping clients diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) to teach them skills to regulate their emotions more effectively, improve their interpersonal effectiveness and build "a life worth living". At present I work with the Psychosis Pathway Team in the NHS. 



My approach

I have successfully treated patients with a variety of presentations, including anxiety-related disorders including panic attacks, phobias, OCD, PTSD, GAD, health anxiety and social anxiety, also depression, addictions, eating disorders and behavioural issues, sleeping disorders, couple issues, low self esteem, assertiveness, stress related issues, anger management and many others.


My main approach is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, which is evidence-based and effective with most disorders. I also integrate elements of Schema Therapy, Mindfulness, Compassion Focussed Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.


I can offer a non-judgmental compassionate approach to resolve your problem. I am here not to judge or criticise you; I will be understanding and supportive. Following my therapy, you will become more aware of what maintains your problem and how your way of thinking affects the way you feel and behave.


You will then be equipped with coping strategies/problem solving skills that help you to cope with difficult situations and stressors, and identify any up-coming problem. Sometimes therapy can be demanding and uncomfortable, but we will overcome obstacles together in a collaborative way and in a relaxed, positive atmosphere.


The unique approach of my therapy is to work with the thinking that maintains your problem; once this pattern has been successfully challenged, you will discover that you feel differently about yourself.


Unlike many other therapists, I try to work with causes and symptoms at the same time. Many of my previous clients have benefited from this unique approach.
