Welcome to Clear Sky Psychology, an independent clinical psychology practice based in North Leeds, West Yorkshire. I provide CBT, EMDR, ACT, Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT), Mindfulness and integrative psychological therapy.
I am an experienced Chartered Clinical Psychologist with over a decade of experience working in mental health. I can provide a number of psychological therapies, tailoring them to suit your needs.
I will work with you to understand the difficulties causing your distress, how and where these originated from, why they continue to affect you and to find ways forward.
I will tailor my approach to suit your individual needs and engage you with compassion, warmth and respect. I aim to create a sense of safety where you are free to express and explore the difficulties you are facing. Together, we will generate a plan to tackle these difficulties. You can decide whether you want just a few sessions or wish to work together over several months.
I am trained and experienced in using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassionate Mind and Mindfulness.
I work with a range of people who are experiencing any number of difficulties. I can work with you to help you overcome traumas, mood difficulties and many forms of anxiety and worry, including panic attacks, social anxiety, work stress, generalised anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), phobias, perfectionism, and health anxiety.
I often work with people struggling with trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bipolar disorder, grief, depression, low self-esteem, difficulty adjusting to life events, work stress, trauma resulting from bullying and the psychological effects of physical and chronic health conditions including medically unexplained symptoms (e.g. chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia) and those with neurodiversity including ADHD and Autism.
