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 am skilled in ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), and Parent-Infant Psychology.
I offer prompt, flexible and effective help for a range of emotional, social and behavioural difficulties across Newcastle and Northumberland. I can help with difficulties such as 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 use evidence-based therapeutic approaches to help clients address their particular difficulties and achieve specific therapeutic goals. For instance, our sessions together may 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
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.
