I have 16 years of NHS experience as a clinical psychologist, including as a service lead,and have worked clinically for 30 years. Like all clinical psychologists, I follow best practice guidelines in treating a variety of emotional problems. I am also a qualified Cognitive Analytic Therapy practitioner and supervisor, involving 3 years additional therapeutic training, and provide consultation, training and supervision for other professionals. I keep up to date, attending regular training in therapeutic techniques and psychological topics, and have ongoing specialist supervision in cognitive analytic and cognitive behavioural therapy to support my work.
If you are seeking to feel better in yourself, want to develop your life and relationships, I'm happy to have a discussion with you about how therapy could help you. I work with :
• sadness or depression
• anxieties and fear
• work stress
• relationship issues
• eating problems
• obsessional thoughts and habits or rituals
• self harm
• carer stress
• post traumatic symptoms
We work together to explore what you want, to understand what might be holding you back or keeping you stuck. Collaboratively, we work on finding ways forward. Therapy often involves work between sessions too, because practice really helps new habits and skills form. There is more information about our team, myself and the therapies I offer on the website www.taylored-psychology.co.uk.
I often work with clients with neurodiversity, like dyslexia, attention deficit and hyperactivity, autistic spectrum or acquired brain injury. I can assess your cognitive abilities if required, or refer onto specialist colleagues as necessary.
Please get in touch with any queries or for a brief conversation to see how I can be of help. Please note that I only work with over 18s.
