Dr Kylie Mitchell DClinPsy/HCPC Accredited
I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist specialising in anxiety, depression, stress, emotional instability and relationship difficulties. I have worked within the NHS for 9 years and also work privately. I am based in South London and offer a range of psychotherapies with individuals, using both short and long-term therapeutic models. I am experienced in working with both adults and young people and also have experience in running various group therapies.
What I offer:
I work with individuals to build a shared understanding of their presenting difficulties, with the aim of helping them to build on their strengths, gain more agency over their difficulties and make changes in their life that foster long-term resiliency and a more secure sense of self. As a qualified clinical psychologist, I am trained in a variety of therapy modalities, including: cognitive behavioural therapy, schema-focused therapy and mentalisation-based therapy, and tailor my approach as appropriate depending on the needs and preferences of the person I am working with. I use these approaches as they are evidence-based and shown to be effective with people who can experience difficulties with depression, anxiety, anger and relationships.
What to expect from your first appointment:
You would be offered an initial phone call consultation (free of charge) to see if a face-to-face appointment would be helpful. We would then meet for an assessment appointment to provide us with a safe space to discuss your concerns and goals in greater depth. We will work together to understand your difficulties and determine a plan for a potential way forward. This usually takes 1-2 sessions but sometimes more time is required to ensure we have a clear plan for the therapy.
