Dr Tom Steverson (Clinical Psychologist)
Norwich Clinical Psychology Practice
44-48 Magdalen Street
My name is Tom and I am a Clinical Psychologist. I have over 15 years of experience working in mental health services and over five years experience working as a qualified Clinical Psychologist in the NHS.
Alongside my NHS work, I also work for Norwich Clinical Psychology Practice. We are a small team of Clinical Psychologists based at a conveniently located office down Magdalen Street, a short walk from Norwich city centre.
I provide a range of evidence-based cognitive-behavioural therapies for adults and young people. I have experience of working with a wide range of conditions includng anxiety (e.g., generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social anxiety, health anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, agoraphobia, post traumatic stress disorder) depression, life/workplace stress, relationship difficulties, adjustment to adverse life events/long term health difficulties (e.g., chronic pain, cancer, stroke etc) and many more.
The Type of Therapy I Offer and How it Helps
I specialise in a form of cognitive-behaviour therapy called acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT).
The aim of ACT is to help you create a rich, full and meaningful life whilst learning skills to handle the pain and difficulties that inevitably go with it. This is achieved by:
1) Teaching mindfulness skills to help you handle difficult thoughts and feelings more effectively.
2) Clarifying the things that are really important in your life (your values) and using these to guide and drive you when making changes.
ACT has a growing evidence-base and has been found to benefit a range of psychological difficulties.
If you would like to make contact please feel free to phone or e-mail me to discuss your needs. This is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions. From here we can decide whether to arrange a no obligation initial assessment session.
If I am not able to take your call straight away please leave a message. I aim to respond to all calls and e-mails within 24 hours.
What to Expect
The purpose of the initial session will be to try and make sense of the difficulties you are currently facing. Should you be willing to start a course of therapy, this session will also be an opportunity to clarify the areas you want to work on and how you want to arrange the therapy (e.g., number of sessions, frequency of appointments etc).
As stated above our office (Sackville Place) is based down Magdalen street, a short walk from Norwich City Centre. Sackville Place is based directly opposite Magdalen Street car park and a short five minute walk from Colgate car park. The offices are also a ten minute walk from St Andrews Car Park. Regular buses also run through Magdalen Street. A very pleasant coffee shop (La Petite) is located directly next door to the Sackvillie Place.
