About me

My name is Dr Harriet Hockaday, and I am a HCPC registered qualified Clinical Psychologist. I am an experienced and specialist therapist, who has worked in various mental health services within the NHS since 2014, including in adult mental heath, older adult psychology, child and adolescent mental health and neuropsychology services. I currently offer online and telephone based therapy to adults (18+) across the UK. I also offer face-to-face appointments in comfortable surroundings in Beith, North Ayrshire. 

I provide a warm, welcoming, compassionate and non-judgmental space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings, to make sense of your life experiences, and to consider goals to improve your wellbeing. I draw from a number of evidence-based modalities including CBT, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT).

I offer a free 15 minute initial telephone consultation prior to commencing therapy, so that we can discuss your needs and goals and answer any questions you might have. I look forward to hearing from you
