Psychological Services

Psychological Therapy

The decision to start psychological therapy is not always an easy one, and everyone has a different reason for seeking support. I offer an in-depth understanding of psychological difficulties (known as a formulation), which is based on your unique personal circumstances and experience. To inform psychological therapy clinical psychologists use a range of evidence based psychological models and theories (please see the therapies page for more information about the psychological models I use). This understanding helps me to develop a psychological therapy that is tailor made to you as an individual. This is always done in collaboration with you, with respect and compassion.

Your first session

We will usually arrange to speak over the phone before our first session. This enables you to ask any questions you have about seeing a psychologist and consider whether the psychological therapy that I offer is the right fit for you. Our first appointment will be based around finding out more about you and what has brought you to therapy. We will aim to begin to develop an understanding of why you may be facing these challenges just now and we will set goals and begin to discuss the best ways forward. Your psychologist should create a safe, trusting environment for you and this will be my aim during this initial appointment.
