Dr Ann Fausset, Clinical Psychologist, D.Clin. Psy, BABCP & EMDR Accredited
In life, we can all sometimes experience difficulties that effect how we feel. These difficulties can sometimes lead to feeling overwhelmed with emotional distress and not knowing how to move forward. Talking therapies can be helpful at these times to understand the reasons that have led to how you are feeling and also to find ways of overcoming or managing the distress you experience.
Reading this page shows that you have taken a brave step to recognise that you need some support. I recognise the courage it takes to seek help and get the right support. Therefore, it is important in therapy that you feel that you have a safe place where you can talk about your difficulties. I aim to provide a therapeutic space in which you can openly talk about your difficulties and experiences. I also want to help you overcome your difficulties as soon as possible so that you can re-engage in the things in life that are meaningful for you.
I will work with you to develop a treatment plan that takes into account the evidence of therapies that are most effective for the difficulties that you are currently struggling with. This evidence is based on research which the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) have used to develop guidelines for a range of mental health difficulties.
Knowledge and Experience
I am Clinical Psychologist with ten years experience of working in mental health. I specialise in adult mental health. Alongside private practice, I work in the NHS as a highly specialised clinical psychologist in an adult mental health service.
I am registered as a Practitioner Psychologist with the Health Care and Professionals Council (HCPC). I am an accredited member of both the British Association of Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapy (BABCP) and the EMDR Association UK & Ireland.
I have extensive experience of working with people with a range of mental health difficulties, including anxiety, depression, phobias, trauma, relationship difficulties and loss. I have a particular interest working with clients with relationship difficulties, self-esteem difficulties and traumatic life experiences.
If you would like to contact me then please either click on the red button or alternatively give me call. We can have brief discussion about your current difficulties and what you might like to gain from psychological therapy.
Our initial discussion will also help you decide if I am the right therapist for you. Following our telephone conversation, I can then meet with you for an initial hour session to complete an assessment and to establish a therapy treatment plan. The therapeutic approaches may include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) or Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT). We will discuss the treatment plan together so that you are happy with any decisions that are made. We will also have regular reviews to ensure that you are making progress towards the aims that you would like to achieve in therapy.
Thank you for taking the time to read about me. I hope to hear from you so that we can begin to make positive changes within your life.
