Dr. Charlotte Ingham | Clinical Psychologist | BSc(Hons), DClinPsy, PGCert
As a HCPC registered, Chartered Clinical Psychologist, I offer a professional, confidential and empowering service to adults and young people in Manchester.
I have a wealth of experience working with both common and complex psychological problems. I see clients from across the Greater Manchester region, and have consulting rooms in Manchester City Centre and Prestwich. I am able to offer daytime and evening appointments to suit you.
I appreciate how daunting it can feel attempting to find the right help when considering tackling distressing issues. If you would like to contact me to discuss your needs and requirements I offer a free telephone consultation, and would be happy to hear from you.
Please see my website for further details.
Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified as a Doctor of Clinical Psychology at Lancaster University. I have worked in the NHS for 8 years, specialising in working with adults who experience interpersonal difficulties and emotion dysregulation, often as a result of difficulties in their early life.
I offer evidence-based therapeutic interventions, which draw upon a range of psychological theories and approaches to fit the therapy to you and your goals. I have an interest and enhanced expertise in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Analytical Therapy (CAT). I also incorporate elements of Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT) into my practice. Therapy can be short, medium or long-term. I take an empowering, person-centred approach to support you to achieve optimum emotional well-being.
Over recent years I have developed further specialist interests in mindfulness, shame, sex and relationships, and trauma therapy.
I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as a Practitioner Psychologist and with the British Psychological Society (BPS) as a Chartered Psychologist. I am also a member of the Psychology of Women section of the BPS.

- Fees are payable at the end of each session by bank transfer or cash/cheque (unless prior arrangements have been made).
- I believe therapy and optimum emotional wellbeing should be accessible to all, and will always aim to see you at a fee you can afford; however, if this is not the case, I am able to provide some lower-fee sessions for those on a low-income and trainees.
I believe that the therapeutic relationship is incredibly important to successful therapy, and can be reflected upon in therapy to aid your growth. This may help you to develop more meaningful, supportive relationships outside of therapy.
I feel passionately that therapy works best when therapists have their own therapy or personal reflection space. After all, we are all human and subject to the highs and lows of life. A therapist who is emotionally well is better able to be present with the people they are working with. I support my own emotional well-being with regular yoga practice and personal therapy.
