DR JOANNA SADDINGTON (Consultant Clinical Psychologist)
Hi, my name is Dr Joanna Saddington and I'm a Consultant Clinical Psychologist. I have worked in the NHS for over 15 years and I have extensive experience in working with ADULTS and CHILDREN experiencing psychological distress (depression, anxiety, grief and loss, anger, trauma, phobia and so on).
I always aim to work collaboratively with anyone coming for therapy, and approach my work in a non-judgemental and empathetic way. The types of interventions and treatments I offer are always tailored to the individual's needs and they can range from exploratory work to behavioural therapy, CBT, couples counselling and relationship work etc.
I also have a special interest in working with FAMILIES and COUPLES experiencing relationship difficulties, as well as offering support and advice to parents around behavioural difficulties.
Finally I offer a range of specialist assessments as well as court work. Please get in touch for more information or visit our website at: www.saddington-spring.co.uk
