Dr Clarissa Bartlett DCPsych CPsychol
I am a registered, chartered Counselling Psychologist as well as an Integrative Psychotherapist.
I offer both short and long-term therapy for clients struggling with such issues as depression, anxiety, relationship problems, work stress, anger management, self identity, cultural issues, disturbing thoughts, phobias and OCD. I have nine years of clinical experience working in a variety of care settings in the NHS, as well as in private clinics.
My underlying principle is to be flexible and to work relationally with the needs and capabilities of each person. I am particularly interested in how attachment patterns are formed; how we relate to our self and others; and finding effective ways to increase personal resilience and emotional wellbeing. I believe that the therapeutic process can greatly benefit and improve people's lives, and have experienced this with my clients, as well as personally.
I decided to pursue a career in Counselling Psychology after engaging in voluntary work in mental health charities, organisations and in-patient hospital communities. These were rewarding and meaningful experiences that set my focus in the pursuit of psychotherapy training. My interests are in relational psychodynamic theories and mindfulness-based interventions. I have found that practising meditation complements and enhances my psychotherapeutic work in a positive way.
