Dr Holly Thompson
I am a sensitive clinical psychologist who combines an aptitude for multidisciplinary team work and client engagement, with strengths in assessment and evidence-based treatment. Hardworking and enthusiastic, excellent verbal and written communication skills and demonstrated ability to conduct and publish research. I provide a combination of evidence-based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Mindfulness Therapy, premised around a client- centred view that a solution tailored to each individual or family is essential for lasting improvement. All treatment is offered and agreed following a thorough assessment of the presenting difficulties, guided by clients' goals and informed by treatment guidelines provided by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE). I am experienced in working with brief and longer-term therapy needs.
I particularly enjoy working with adults and families, with a range of presenting difficulties. I am experienced in working with PTSD (both adults and children), depression, anxiety, self-harm, OCD as well as broader difficulties relating to eating, sleep, and grief and loss. I am experienced in working with autism spectrum and behavioural difficulties in children and adolescents. I aspire to provide the highest standards of psychological therapy and my work is regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
