Dr. Edward Bloomfield - Clinical Psychologist / Therapist
Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, only telephone and online assessments and therapy consultations are offered.
I am a fully qualified Registered Clinical Psychologist by profession and have over 15 years experience working as a senior clinician in the NHS and in private practice.
I provide a safe space, where people can explore and better understand the way they think and how they feel. This often involves understanding the person, their relationships and how they experience and respond to the world around them.
Together we work towards an understanding that is unique to the person and their experience. I then draw on a range of theories and therapeutic models in order to tailor an intervention to the individual, helping each individual work towards their goals for personal change.

I am a Clinical Psychologist by profession and have worked with individuals from different ages and diverse backgrounds with a broad range of issues since 2001.
I provide an environment that is safe and non-judgemental for people to reflect on their thoughts and feelings. Talking through difficulties in therapy can increase a person's self-understanding and ability to reach their full potential.

Many of us are likely to experience anxiety and depression at some stage in life and this can be a turning point, which leads a person to decide to seek therapy. Therapy can be a way of turning this life challenge into increasing self-awareness and broadening a person's ability to respond differently to familiar difficulties. This is a personal process and unique to each individual. It involves sometimes having to address painful feelings or memories. I offer a space which is respectful and acknowledges the struggles a person is having in their life and of the difficulties in talking about them. The therapy I offer always aims to help the person work towards feeling more understanding and accepting of themselves and equipped to tackle their difficulties and approach life with greater confidence.
