Choosing the right Psychologist for you.
Seeing a psychologist can feel like a big step and the match between psychologist and client is a key factor in the success of therapy. The psychologists in our team have all been selected based on personal characteristics of warmth, a positive, non-judgemental approach and an active commitment to ongoing training in the latest therapeutic approaches in our field. Sometimes a particular therapist may be better suited to your needs due to their additional experience or training. When you first contact our practice, we will ask you some questions about the general area you would like to work on, the outcome you would like to achieve and what you might be looking for in a therapist to help to ensure we get the match right for you. Please also note that all our therapists work set days a week and evening times and Saturdays are in the highest demand.
Our psychologists are able to provide therapy that caters to a wide range of depth and complexity from workplace stress and career goals to complex trauma. All of our psychologists are trained in therapies that are goal-directed and designed to help you manage symptoms and difficulties such as Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT). They are also skilled in trauma-focused therapies such as Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR), Schema Therapy and Internal Family Systems (IFS).
