Dr Anna Gosling, Clinical Psychologist, PsychD, MSc, BSc
COVID-19 I am happy to offer ‘virtual sessions’ online, via a range of secure on-line platforms, with a view to resuming face to face sessions when it is safe to do so. Please feel free to contact me to discuss this further.
With over 16 years experience working in the NHS with people with a range of mental health issues, I am able to offer a comprehensive psychological assessment and treatment package tailored to your individual needs.
How can seeing a psychologist help?
Talking therapy is recommended by NICE (National Institute for Clinical Excellence) for a range of mental health issues. I work with people with issues including anxiety, stress, depression, phobias, OCD, grief and trauma. I use evidence based therapy, such as CBT (cognitive behaviour therapy) and EMDR to support people to work through the problems they are facing.
What to expect from your first session
After you contact me, we can arrange for a brief phone call, so we can discuss what might best suit your needs and arrange to meet for an assessment session.
Sessions are generally an hour long (although tend to be longer for couple or family work).
During the assessment I will ask you a range of questions, concentrating on the main issue troubling you at the moment, how it may be effecting your mood, your relationships and your day to day activities. We may also talk about relevant past experiences.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist, which means that after my degree in psychology I trained to a doctoral level in Clinical Psychology. I also have a Masters Degree in Health Psychology.
Since training, I have worked in Surrey for the NHS, gaining experience working with adults and their families, with a range of problems. I have also gained further qualifications in working with people with trauma using EMDR.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I charge £95 per hour for individual sessions, for people paying themselves.
£100 for insurance (due to increased adminstration).
I offer video sessions via secure on-line platforms.
I work with people with a wide range of issues including: anxiety, phobias, depression, OCD, hoarding, psychosis, BPD, generalised anxiety disorder, bi-polar disorder, stress, trauma, abuse, relationship issues, emotion management problems.
