Clinical Psychology Therapy Service
Notice in the light of covid-19: Please note that I am experienced at doing video therapy. Many clients who aren’t sure at first, find that it works very well indeed, and this is borne out by research in the field. If you want help, but you are self-isolating, please contact me for information about video therapy using Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp or Messenger.
As a Chartered Clinical Psychologist, I can help if you are struggling, or want to be functioning at your best. I provide face to face sessions in Thurmaston, Leicester, but distance does not need to be an object, because I do video sessions via Skype/Zoom, as well as email therapy and telephone therapy. I have been working as a Clinical Psychologist for over 20 years, providing therapy to help people manage and overcome psychological difficulties. I work with couples, teenagers and tweenagers, and will also provide support for parents of babies and toddlers. Areas that I am particularly experienced at working with include:
- Depression, including postnatal depression
- Anxiety, including panic attacks
- Post traumatic stress
- Obsessional Compulsive Disorder
- Childbirth preparation and counselling
- Relationship and sexual problems
- Parenting issues
- Sleep problems
- Spinal injury
- Specific phobias (for example flying, spiders, tokophobia, talking in public)
- Smoking cessation
- Work stress
- Stress management and resilience building
- and more
Clinical Psychologists are trained to tailor what they do, to the needs of each individual person, drawing on a vast knowledge base of particular models, techniques and approaches. During your assessment, I will think about and share with you which approach I think will suit you best, and how many sessions might be appropriate (anything from 1 session to 20). The approach that I use is primarily short term focused therapy, drawing on cognitive behaviour therapy, compassion focused therapy (or compassionate mind training), mindfulness, positive psychology, the human givens model and rewind therapy. If you would like to discuss how I may be able to help you, please do email me, text me, and/or we can arrange a phone call.
Fees are £100 per hourly session, I am registered with , AVIVA, AXA PPP, BUPA, and WPA, health insurance companies.
