Dr Jodie Goddard, Clinical Psychologist
Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.
My name is Jodie and I am a Registered Clinical Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). I am experienced in working with clients across the lifespan; children, adolescents and adults. I currently work in the NHS specialising in Child Psychology: working with children and young people who are experiencing psychological distress. I have particular experience in working with children and adults who have an Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) and Attention, Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
I have been trained to a high standard of expertise in a range of therapeutic models. I have experience of working therapeutically using an integrative psychological approach, drawing on aspects of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Attachment Theory, Systemic models, Behavioural Theory and Psychodynamic principles.
I provide assessment and therapeutic intervention for a range of emotional difficulties, including anxiety, depression, phobias, attachment difficulties, chronic pain, obsessive/compulsive problems, adjustment difficulties, child behavioural problem, parenting interventions, visible difference concerns and the psychological impact of illness and injury. I also have experience of providing therapeutic intervention for both children and adults who have ASC and/or ADHD.
I understand it can be difficult choosing to come to therapy and it is important to find a Psychologist you feel comfortable with. I am happy to answer any questions you may have and to talk through whether therapy is something you would like to consider. During our first appointment, we will have the opportunity to discuss what you would like support with and how we may work together.
Unfortunately, due to the current Coronavirus situation and restrictions, I can only offer telephone and video appointments. I will continue to offer face to face appointments once restrictions have been lifted. Please text, call or email if you would to consider a telephone or video appointment.

Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
