Psychological Assessment and Formulation

In order to understand and make sense of the presenting difficulties clients are experiencing in their lives, I place great emphasis on first conducting a comprehensive assessment. This would typically include asking questions about their life, challenges they may be experiencing, their support network, current coping strategies, goals for therapy etc. As a Clinical Psychologist, I work collaboratively with my clients to develop a formulation, to make sense of difficulties within the context of one's life; this allows us to then think about what might be helpful therapeutically moving forward.


Talking Therapy

Talking therapy is a treatment that includes talking with a trained therapist to better understand one's thoughts, feelings and behaviours. In providing a safe and confidential space, I aim to support clients to better understand the difficulties they may experience and explore ways in which to cope moving forward. This is done compassionately and non-judgementally, to ensure the process feels supportive.


Clinical Psychologists are able to draw upon a range of therapeutic approaches to help support individuals experiencing difficulties related to their emotional wellbeing; this could include, but is not limited to; low mood, anxiety, stress, adjustment to major life events, obsessive compulsive disorder. I draw upon different therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to meet the needs of those I work with. 

What is CBT?

CBT is a widely used and evidence-based talking therapy, focused on understanding how our thoughts, feelings, behaviours and physical sensations interact in a way that may maintain presenting difficulties. In doing this, we can identify how we can challenge thoughts and change behaviours in order to change the way we feel. CBT is particularly effective for presentations such as anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder etc. 

What is CFT?

CFT is a third wave cognitive behavioural therapy, particularly helpful for individuals who may be experiencing feelings of shame or self-criticism. CFT primarily focuses on developing an understanding of why we might feel this way and building skills of self-compassion to help regulate how we feel emotionally. 

What is ACT? 

ACT is another third wave cognitive behavioural therapy focused on acknowledging and accepting what is out of our control and committing to actions that enrich our lives. This approach includes the use of mindfulness skills to develop psychological flexibility, identifying our values (what is most important to us) and changing our actions to live a meaningful life in line with our values, despite the situation we may find ourselves in. This approach can be particularly helpful for those experiencing depression, stress and adjustment difficulties. 

We are currently able to support clients aged 18 years and over.
