I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist and the founder of my private practice, DCP Therapy. I have vast experience of assessing and treating adults with a range of psychological problems and diagnoses. With over 14 years experience in the NHS, I continue to maintain a senior role there alongside private practice. A tailor-made approach is taken to help clients build psychological resilience to improve relationships and foster healthy emotional and physical well-being.
As a Chartered Clinical Psychologist, I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and British Psychological Society (BPS).
I offer therapy for adults with psychological problems that may have come about as a result of a life event or a formal mental health diagnosis.
Within private practice, I offer modern evidence-based interventions as well as approaches that draw from cognitive, behavioural, attachment, experiential and psychodynamic principles. These include;
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT)
- Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
- Affect Phobia Therapy (APT) - experiential dynamic therapy (psychodynamic)
In some cases. I take an integrative approach to therapy if this is deemed to be more beneficial for the client. That is, drawing from a combination of therapeutic models rather than following one.
