Dr Alex Satchwell
Hello, my name is Alex. I am a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and a Registered Practitioner Psychologist with the Health and Social Care Professionals Council (HCPC). I work in adult mental health services in the NHS as well as offering private therapy and supervision sessions.
Choosing to come to therapy can be a difficult and anxiety provoking decision. Please do contact me with any questions you may have and I will be happy to speak with you about how we might work together.
During our first appointment, we will have opportunity to talk about what it is that 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. I work within the strict professional and ethical guidelines of both the HCPC and BPS and receive regular clinical supervision from a Senior 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. I am happy to discuss with you any presenting difficulties you may be experiencing.
In therapy, we will utilise 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) and Behavioural Family Therapy (BFT) amongst others.
As part of our consultation, we will think about how to use these models to best help address the difficulties you are facing.
Please contact me by text/email/telephone 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 or email so that I am able to return your enquiry. Regrettably, calls made without a message cannot be returned.
