Dr Liz White, Consultant Clinical Psychologist
***Please note I am only seeing clients via Zoom/Skype & telephone at the moment***
I am a highly experienced HCPC registered Consultant Clinical Psychologist. I have spent 16 years working in NHS mental health services and qualified in 2007. In my last NHS post I held a Head of Service position in which I was responsible for the operational & strategic management of the service and a large team of psychologists. I now focus on my private practice full time. I am chartered with the British Psychological Society (CPsychol), a chartered scientist with the Science Council (CSci) and an associate fellow with the British Psychological Society (AFBPsS).
I am passionate about the work that I do and offer psychological assessment and treatment to people over 18 years of age. I have expertise in working with a range of difficulties and have a special interest in helping clients manage anxiety, depression/low mood, low self esteem/self confidence. My work is multi-modal, and I draw on many different psychological models and therapies to get the best outcome for each client. I have expertise in cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy, compassion focused therapy, mindfulness and psychodynamic approaches.
I believe in empowering clients to make changes and I work in a compassionate, respectful and professional way. I emphasise to clients that therapy is collaborative, in which working as a team together is key to creating meaningful change.
Recent client testimonials:
"Liz is very professional and perceptive, is able to travel through confusion and show a path forward. I am so pleased to have worked with Liz, and I don't know where I would be without her".
"Calm & empathic style, Liz has really helped me face up to the challenges I had; accept them and take small steps to change behaviour that has made a huge shift in how I feel overall. Would highly recommend Liz to others."
"Very calming environment that I have found extremely useful to discuss feelings and emotions that had essentially baffled and confused me for a long period of my life. Nothing is judged and all can be discussed leading to open, honest measures to take some action on things in my life which cause me suffering. I very much thank you for your work and will not forget it!"
