Dr Justin Savage, Clinical Psychologist (ClinPsyD)
I am an experienced and chartered Clinical Psychologist - I help individuals and families with their psychological wellbeing. I have private and NHS experience as a Clinical Psychologist. My focus involves depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship problems. I am professionally registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and am a chartered member of The British Psychological Society (BPS).
I provide psychological therapy and assessment, including medico-legal reports, for a wide range of psychological, emotional and behavioural problems. I aim to help people overcome their problems as quickly and effectively as possible, guided by their pace and capabilities.
I use training and experience in various therapies such as, Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness-based therapy to work with a range of people and problems. I specialise in ISTDP as this approach is designed to be highly effective and create long-lasting change in as short a time-frame as possible. I will work collaboratively with you to tailor therapy to your individual goals and needs.
Treated problems include: depression, anxiety disorders, trauma, eating disorders, medically unexplained symptoms and pains, relationship problems, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, self-harm, emotional instability, personality issues.

I am and have been involved in supervising, consultation and teaching.
