Dr Bhavisha Dave
I am a Qualified Clinical Psychologist who has worked in the NHS for 19 years and completed my Clinical Doctorate over 11 years ago.
I offer a comprehensive assessment prior to offering therapy drawing on various Psychological approaches ultimately working towards a positive change.
I work in an integrative way and tailor the therapy to the client’s needs. The therapies I use are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Compassion Focussed Therapy, Mindfulness, and Personal Construct Therapy.
I am accredited through the British Psychological Society and I am a registered member of the Health and Care Professions Council.
You can phone or email me to make an appointment. I offer a free initial telephone consultation which helps us decide how I might be able to help. Appointments thereafter are in person at a consistent confidential venue.

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.
