Dr Emma Bacon, Clinical Psychologist, DClinPsychol, CPsychol, BA(Hons)
I provide psychological assessment, formulation and therapy for children and young people, parent(s) and carer(s), families, and adults. I work across Newcastle and Northumberland.
I offer prompt, flexible and effective help for a range of emotional, social and behavioural difficulties. I can help with low mood and depression, anxiety and worry, fears and phobias, grief and bereavement, adjustment difficulties e.g. transitions to a new family structure, behaviour problems, parenting issues and challenges in developing a healthy parent-child relationship. I work with people needing support through a particularly challenging time in their lives, as well as those with longstanding psychological difficulties.
I am skilled in ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), and Parent-Infant Psychology. I often take an integrative approach, combining knowledge and skills from more than one therapeutic approach to provide tailor-made support for each client.
I use evidence-based therapeutic approaches to help clients address their particular difficulties and achieve specific therapeutic goals. Depending on what your aims are, our sessions together could give you:
- new coping skills to manage difficulties and challenges more effectively
- practical suggestions about how to handle emotions such as sadness and anger
- greater understanding of how to change your behaviour or that of your child
- support to develop a happy and healthy relationship with your baby or child
or many other outcomes that will help you feel better and deal more effectively with your current challenges.
Please see my website (www.emmabaconclinpsych.co.uk) for further information. Or contact me for a free informal chat about my service and to discuss the help I can provide for you or your child.
I offer appointments at clients' homes, a local therapy room or other venue such as school, as appropriate. I am available some weekday evenings and Saturday mornings. I aim to be flexible and meet with you at a convenient time and place.
