Clinical Psychologists provide therapy for individuals, families and groups. We also supervise and teach other professionals to provide psychological therapies.
We train for many years to attain Chartered Status and are experienced in varied psychological theories and therapeutic models. First, we gain an undergraduate degree in psychology, usually followed by several years of relevant work experience and further postgraduate study.
Clinical Psychologists then undertake a doctorate in clinical psychology. We continue training and specialising throughout their careers. This helps clinical psychologists to provide a number of therapy approaches. I have specialised, with further training, in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), Mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
This training and experience enables me to offer you expertise in assessment and integrating evidence-based psychological therapy to suit the needs of each client. I am also trained to assess the effects of distress and trauma in people’s lives. This can be particularly relevant when assessment or legal reports are required.
