Clinical Psychology Therapy Service

As a Chartered Clinical Psychologist, my job is to 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 GoogleMeet/Skype, as well as email therapy and telephone therapy. I have been working as a Clinical Psychologist for over 25 years, providing therapy to help people manage and overcome psychological difficulties. I work with individuals, couples, and teenagers.  Areas that I am particularly experienced at working with include:

  • Perinatal difficulties – postnatal and antenatal problems
  • Birth Trauma and perinatal trauma
  • Menopause difficulties
  • Depression, including postnatal depression
  • Anxiety, including panic attacks
  • Post traumatic stress and PTSD
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, including perinatal OCD
  • Birth fear and tokophobia
  • Childbirth preparation and counselling
  • Relationship and sexual problems
  • Parenting issues
  • Unhealthy relationship with food
  • Sleep problems and insomnia
  • Specific phobias (for example flying, spiders, tokophobia, talking in public)
  • Stress management and resilience building
  • and more

I have a particular interest in childbearing and perinatal difficulties, and have years of experience as a hypnobirthing antenatal teacher and a birth doula.

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, hypnotherapy, 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 £120 per hourly session, I am registered with BUPA, Aviva, Axa, Vitality,WPA, and Cigna health insurance companies.
