Dr Nichola Marchant, (Clinical Psychologist, Derbyshire)
07771 391614 / 07771 391614
My name is Dr Nichola Marchant and I am an experienced and compassionate Clinical Psychologist based in Derbyshire. I have been working with those who experience mental health difficulties and emotional distress for the last 18 years in both the NHS and independent sector.
As a Clinical Psychologist, I am able to offer a variety of different psychological approaches to provide an individually tailored approach rather than expecting people to fit into specific "boxes". Therapies offered include- Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, CBT; Dialectical Behavior Therapy, DBT skills , Schema Focused Therapy, Somatic Trauma Therapy, Compassion Therapy, Mindfulness, EMDR and Cognitive Analytic Therapy, CAT.
I offer Psycho-sexual therapy for those (individuals, couples, poly relationships) experiencing sexual concerns (e.g. intimacy issues, problems with arousal, orgasm difficulties, pain, addictive issues) and those wanting to explore their sexual identity / interests within therapy. I am a member of COSRT (the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists).
I have a keen interest in working with those 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 and addictive behaviours eg drugs / alcohol / sexual behaviours / pornography / eating / gambling).
I work with clients who have often experienced traumatic or negative life events.

Prior to working independently, I specialised in working with those with difficulties relating to trauma (for example, sexual abuse, neglect, emotional / physical abuse and domestic violence), attachment problems (for example those who have received a diagnosis of personality disorder) and those with substance abuse / addiction issues.
I have completed additional training in Schema Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, EMDR, Somatic Trauma Therapy , Psycho-sexual Therapy and Equine Assisted Psychotherapy.
