Dr Carrie Rowbottom, DClinPsychol. CPsychol. BSc (Hons).
I'm an HCPC registered and charted clinical psychologist. In my practice I use a range of psychological therapies, particularly elements of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and compassion-focused therapy. I am passionate about not only helping people to overcome their difficulties, but to also uncover and build upon their strengths and resilience.
I have a particular interest in treating anxiety in all its various forms, as well as depression. I understand how much courage it takes to reach out for help and I strive to help my clients feel safe and secure so that they can move forwards.
I am an external lecturer for the University of Leeds clinical psychology programme and I also regularly mentor University of Hull undergraduate psychology students, as part of their e-Mentoring programme.
In my spare time I love gardening, walking, animals (especially dogs!), playing the piano and writing/recording music.
Please feel free to email or telephone me free of charge if you would like to find out more about how I work, etc. We can discuss whether or not I think it is something I can help you with, or possibly suggest another service instead.
During your first appointment, we will have an in-depth and confidential discussion of the difficulties you are experiencing, any specific diagnoses, as well as different treatment recommendations.
Depending on the severity of the condition, psychological treatments can take anywhere from 6-10 weekly sessions for more mild symptoms, or up to 20 or more for more longstanding or severe conditions. This treatment is always oriented towards alleviating your symptoms whilst achieving the specific goals you most want to achieve.
