Dr Emily Callan BA (Hons) DClinPsy PgDip CPsychol AFBPsS CSci
I'm a principal clinical psychologist working in the NHS across both community mental health and the crisis resolution and home treatment teams. Both services support clients with severe and enduring mental health difficulties.
I am a Chartered Psychologist and Chartered Scientist with the British Psychological Society (BPS), an Associate Fellow of the BPS and a Registered Practitioner Psychologist with the Health and Social Care Professionals Council (HCPC).

-diagnostic assessment for Autistic Spectrum Disorders
-Cognitive/ neuropsychological assessment for 16+
Choosing to come to therapy can be a difficult and worrying decision. Please do contact me with any questions you may have and I will be happy to speak with you briefly about how we can work together to help you. During our first appointment, we will have opportunity to talk about what it is that is you would like support with. We can then decide together if on-going work would be helpful. There is no obligation to continue with sessions following our first meeting. I offer a comfortable and confidential consulting room, with free parking available on site. I work within the strict professional and ethical guidelines of both the HCPC and BPS and receive regular clinical supervision from a Consultant Clinical Psychologist, ensuring you receive the highest standard of psychological care.
As a clinical psychologist, I am trained to a high standard of expertise in a range of therapeutic models. In therapy, I focus on a person centred approach, integrating a number of psychological approaches appropriate to your needs. Clinically, I draw on a theoretical background of:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT)
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy(ACT)
Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) Skills
Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)
As part of our consultation, we will think about how to use these models to best help address the difficulties you are facing.
I also offer assessment for Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) for both adults and children using the Diagnostic Interview for Social and Communication Disorders (DISCO)
Please do contact me by text/ email if you would like to arrange an initial consultation.
If contacting me by telephone, please leave a voice message with your full name and contact number so that I am able to return your call. Calls made without a message cannot be returned.
PLEASE NOTE THAT I CURRENTLY WORK FULL TIME IN THE NHS. WHEN LEAVING A MESSAGE, I WILL ENDEAVOR TO GET BACK TO YOU WITHIN 72 HOURS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE.
