Dr Nichola Marchant, (Clinical Psychologist, Derbyshire)
I am an experienced and compassionate Chartered Clinical Psychologist based in Derbyshire.
As a Clinical Psychologist, I am educated to doctorate level and have considerable pre and post qualification experience of working with people with difficulties relating to their emotional and mental health. In total, I have over 19 years experience of supporting individuals to achieve their goals.
It is important for me to offer a non-judgmental way of working with clients and I endeavor to offer a safe space in therapy in which all topics and emotions are welcome.
I am able to offer a variety of different psychological approaches to provide an individually tailored approach to therapy. I offer various therapies includng Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, CBT; Dialectical Behavior Therapy, DBT skills , Schema Focused Therapy, Compassion Therapy, Mindfulness, EMDR. I offer both short and long-term therapy.
I have a keen interest in working with those who have experienced traumatic life events (e.g. abuse, bereavement & loss, health related issues). I often work with people who are experiencing relationship problems (including issues relating to identity, conflict and sexual difficulties), emotional difficulties and mood problems (such as anxiety, depression and issues relating to anger) and those who have developed problematic coping patterns (such as self-harming, addictive behaviours eg drugs / alcohol / sexual behaviours / pornography / eating / gambling)
I offer therapy for those (individuals, couples, poly relationships) experiencing sexual concerns (e.g. intimacy issues, problems with arousal, erectile problems, orgasm difficulties, pain, addictive issues, problems following trauma) and those wanting to explore their sexual identity / interests within therapy. I am a member of COSRT (the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists).
