Hello and thank you for visiting my page. I am an experienced Clinical Psychologist working with adults and children. My clients may be experiencing the ups and downs of life, through to anxiety, depression and trauma.
A Clinical Psychologist is a mental health professional with doctoral level training in assessment and therapy. We listen carefully and work together with clients as equals. Therapy sessions are tailored to your goals using one or more of the following approaches. All of the therapies I use are based on a strong evidence base of research and are time limited, typically 6 – 20 sessions.
For Post Traumatic Stress symptoms such as nightmares, flashbacks and avoidance, I offer Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy. EMDR helps to process memories and the feelings attached to them into a more manageable form. It can be used for a range of situations including car accidents, bullying, childhood events and complicated bereavements.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a practical approach to change for common concerns such as anxiety, panic, phobias, obsessive compulsive problems and depression. I often find it helpful to combine CBT with ideas from self-compassion and mindfulness especially for people who are self-critical or troubled by overwhelming thoughts and worries. These are useful strategies to learn to maintain good mental health, similar to doing exercise to improve and maintain our physical health.
I also offer assessments of possible Dyslexia and Autism Spectrum Conditions for children and adults, including university students.
Fees cover face to face time as well as ongoing training and professional registrations to help ensure a safe and top quality service. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and counselling sessions are £120 for 50 minutes for people who fund themselves. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy sessions are either 50 minutes or you can choose longer 70 minute sessions which are £150.
I am registered with all major private healthcare providers who will pay or contribute, including Bupa, AXA, Aviva, Cigna and Vitality. I also work for other organisations. Rates are set with the provider.
Therapy sessions take place in Clifton Village during office hours Tuesday to Thursday.
