About me

I have been working in the field of psychology since 1996, qualified as a Clinical Psychologist in 2003. I have a thorough experence in providing psychological therapies both within the NHS and independently.

My clinical experience comprises Adult Mental Health, Psychological Trauma, Chronic Pain, pre-surgical Weight Management, Family/Child services and Learning Disabilities. I have repeatedly given evidence as an expert witness within Clinical Negligence & Personal Injury proceedings. I am published in peer-reviewed journals and have delivered presentations to both international conferences and training groups.

I hold two therapy clinics in Paignton, Monday morning and Thursday all day. I use Cognitive/REBT, Behavioural, CBT, EMDR and Brainspotting, within a context of a genuine therapeutic alliance.

I am Registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) and Chartered with the British Psychological Society (BPS)

Areas of therapy include:

  • Stress Management
  • Depression
  • Anxiety/Panic & Phobia
  • Anger
  • Trauma & PTSD
  • OCD
  • Grief
  • Chronic Pain
  • Addictions
  • Weight Management
  • Self Injury

I approach therapy with a clear strategy.

  • Understand the target concerns
  • Ensure shared understanding of concerns, goals and modes of therapy
  • Develop strategies & resources to manage the (emotional) difficulties experienced in the here & now
  • Work through, process and resolve whatever is underlying and causing the (emotional) difficulties
  • Support progression to desired activities or a return to previous activities

For many people, Life, Family, Work, Travel, Mobility & Fatigue, can prevent regular attendance at therapy appointments.

I also provide CBT, EMDR and Brainspotting therapy & treatment ONLINE using a specialised, secure, fully confidential program similar to Skype or Facetime. ​

​​CBT can also be provided via telephone if preferred.

Online and Telephone appointments are more flexible and can be provided during more antisocial hours by prior agreement.

Online & Telephone therapy is discreet and Dr Ellis Kalmus has solid experience working with drug/alcohol issues, psychosexual & forensic matters.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
