HCPC Registered Practitioner Psychologist
I am able to offer assessment and therapy for children, adolescents and adults. I offer appoinments on a Friday and Monday. I have some occasional weekend appointments on request. Unfortunately I am unable to accommodate evening appointments.
Please contact me to discuss your individual requirements.
A psychological assessment is an initial meeting to talk about your main difficulties and to work out together how best I may be able to support you. During the first appointment we will talk about how your difficulties are affecting your life at this time. We may complete some questionnaires together to help me understand your needs in more detail.
We can discuss your goals for the future and any particular issues you would like to work on during therapy sessions. I will then advise on recommended treatments and approaches to find the best fit for you.
Please contact me to discuss your individual requirements and I will be happy to help.
My extensive clinical training allows me work flexibly and to draw on a number of therapeutic models and interventions, individually tailored to meet the needs of my clients.
Each therapeutic approach I use is supported by a strong research evidence base. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for example is a therapeutic approach recommended by NICE (National Institute of Clinical Evidence) as one of the most effective interventions for a range of psychological difficulties in both children and adults including depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, phobias, and post traumatic stress disorder.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
CBT explores the relationship between how we think about events in our life, how we respond emotionally and how this affects our behaviour. During CBT sessions we will develop a shared understanding and formulation of your difficulties, and problem solve together how you may approach your difficulties in a different, more helpful way. CBT is very much collaborative, goal focussed and time limited which suits many people.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) aims to connect you to your core values in life. ACT is an approach which will help you to develop coping strategies to accept and let go of painful thoughts and feelings which are barriers to you living the life you wish to lead.
If you are interested in other therapeutic approaches please contact me to discuss further.
