About me

I provide a friendly, compassionate and relaxed atmosphere in which you can experience non-judgmental support and an impartial listening ear, as well as strategies for change.Whether you are looking for help with low mood, anxiety, sleep, self-esteem, anger management, stress management, work-related issues, relationship/family problems, substance misuse, grief, hearing voices, or need some psychological support through a difficult time. Please contact me by email to discuss your needs further. carolinedunsmuirwhite@protonmail.com

Together we will think about the problems you are experiencing and try to understand how these problems have arisen, what is keeping them going, and how we can help you to move forward. In order to do this we will use a number of therapeutic approaches and skills informed by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT), and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT).

In seeking a clinical psychologist, you will be able to talk about the difficulties you are experiencing at present, as well as learning coping strategies and new approaches to help you move forward and make positive changes, all whilst in a compassionate, supportive, and non-judgmental environment.

Getting Started

Sometimes it can feel overwheming starting the process, i'm glad you have found your way here to start to access help. To setup sessions with me please contact me via email to set up an initial session.

In the initial session we will talk about what you would like to get out of therapy and any difficulties you may currently have. I will answer any questions you have about therapy and will explain what will happen from there. We will agree the type of help you would like and how many sessions will be helpful and achievable. It may be that we set up a number of sessions and then review our progress. I offer both short-term and longer-term therapy. Sessions will usually be weekly and we will agree a regular time slot so you know that is available for you every week until the work is finished.

My Experience

I have experience working in the NHS and within private companies, and continue to work both privately and within the NHS, providing a current knowledge of NHS processes. Throughout my career I have worked with individuals of all ages including children, adolescents, working age adults, and older adults. I now specialise in working with adults (18+) of all ages. I have experience of working with a wide range of problems as reported below, and utilise researched and evidence based therapeutic approaches within my practice.
