Dr Ellen Finch-Sieg
The Town Hall
St. Georges Street
Hello I am a Dr in Clinical Psychology and an accredited EMDR practitioner. I offer talking therapies and specialise in trauma work using EMDR (eye movement desentisation and reprocessing) and other therapeutic approaches.
I can help with a great variety of mental health challenges and work with an integrative framework that draws on CBT and other third wave CBT approaches, such as mindfulness based CBT and ACT.
I work for the NHS on 4 days a week and have 10 years of experiences of working with adults who are depressed, anxious, angry and traumatised. I see mental health as being on a continuum of ill and 'well' health and would like to help people (re)establish a greater sense of well-being with themselves and others.

Privately funded clients;
- 60 minutes (standard) session is charged at £70
- 90 minutes (EMDR process session) is charged at £90
The initial ‘taster session’ of 30/40 minutes is charged at £40: I encourage clients to check first whether they feel they can work with me, as I realise the importance of the therapeutic relationship to ‘making therapies work’.
If your employer or insurance pays;
- 60 minutes (standard) session is charged at £90
- 90 minutes (EMDR process session) is charged at £110
I currently offer appointments on Mondays (day and evening time) and usually see clients on a weekly basis, at the same time slot each week.
I use a clinic room in the newly refurbished town hall in Hebden Bridge. This is a central location with easy access to parking and the train station. The clinic room is wheelchair accessible with a ramp and lift.
