About me

‘No other Psychologist has facilitated me to develop such a deep understanding of my motivations, past traumas, and sense of self like Stephanie has - and no-one else has helped me put these learnings and experiences into skills and approaches that help me live my life’ (Client)

Dr Stephanie Minchin is a fully qualified Clinical Psychologist, registered with the Health Care Professionals Council (HCPC), and a fully qualified Yoga Teacher and Yoga Therapist, with over 10 years experience of working in mental health settings with people of all ages across the lifespan, from a diverse range of socio-cultural and economical backgrounds.

Psychological therapy offers scientific evidence-based talking therapies to explore, understand and overcome emotional and mental health difficulties and/or physical health conditions.

The process of psychological therapy involves an assessment exploring one’s life story, the current difficulties and their contexts, making sense of the difficulties together, identifying what you would like help and support with, defining individualized goals for the therapy, and applying specialist therapeutic interventions to help transform, heal and make change, with regular review and evaluation of progress.

Who I work with:

People I work with have sought psychological therapy for emotional and behavioural difficulties, attachment & relationship difficulties, loss and bereavement, eating difficulties, issues related to gender identity & sexuality, alcohol and substance misuse, self-harm, underlying neurodevelopmental difficulties (ASD, ADHD), parenting, and coping with physical health conditions.


Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) - CBT is the recommended treatment intervention for anxiety, depression and panic. CBT is a skill-based approach which helps you to identify unhelpful thoughts and behaviours, and challenge the patterns and cycles through active changes.

Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) - CFT is a third-wave CBT, with foundations in evolutionary psychology and influences of Eastern approaches to understanding the human experience. The main tenet of CFT is to build ways to soothe and calm the mind and body, through developing compassion-based skills.

Narrative Therapy - Narrative Therapy examines the life stories we live by and creates a re-authoring from problem-saturated narratives to ones of hope, strength and resilience.

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) - DBT has influences from various cognitive therapies, using a skill-based approach as well as mindfulness-based strategies to build emotional resilience, flexibility, and improve interpersonal relationships; effective for those feeling overwhelmed by emotions or feeling numb.

Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) - ACT is a skill-based approach, integrating elements of cognitive therapies and mindfulness. ACT can be supportive in building present moment awareness, detaching from unhelpful thoughts and behaviours, accepting what is beyond one’s control, and identifying the positive personal values which you live by.

Systemic Therapy (Family Therapy; Couples Therapy) - Systemic therapy explores and maps the relationships between individuals to better understand the difficulties existing between them in order to move towards positive change together.

Psychodynamic Therapy - Psychodynamic Therapy is an exploratory approach, which seeks to understand the inner psyche by exploring the unconscious mind and inner world, developed and influenced by early childhood experiences and attachment patterns.

Yoga Therapy - the science of applying yoga to treat emotional, mental and/or physical health difficulties in the process of healing towards health and wellbeing. Yoga Therapy views the person as a whole, an integrated system of mind, body, emotional and spiritual aspects and can be a valuable compliment to alternative modern medicine. Yoga therapy is appropriate for people of all levels & abilities.
