Dr Rebecca Lee, Clinical Psychologist
Insight Psychology offers evidence-based psychological therapy to individuals and their families within the heart of Wimborne. Dr Becky Lee has over 15 years of experience working within the NHS.
Life can become extremely tough at times and that can lead to the erosion of our sense of wellbeing. We may find ourselves feeling constantly fatigued; struggling to enjoy the things we used to; withdrawing from activities; feeling bleak about life; feeling anxious or having physical complaints such as being more frequently unwell and struggling with digestive issues or muscular aches and pains. These issues could suggest that stress is having an impact on your psychological wellbeing. Symptoms that your mental health may be deteriorating could often be more obvious such as beginning to hear or see things that others don’t; becoming dangerously underweight or having episodes of mania, to name a few. These patterns may in time become a familiar way of being and we may slowly drift from our own sense of ‘normality’. It can often prove challenging to work out how you got from A to B and how to navigate a way back to A.
Why a Clinical Psychologist?
As a Clinical Psychologist I spent 7 years at University receiving extensive teaching and training in the psychological theory of human behaviour and the assessment and treatment of mental health problems. I am experienced in delivering a wide range of evidenced based psychological therapies, so I am able to draw on these and deliver a person-centred approach that concentrates on individual needs. My aim is to build a collaborative relationship with you and empower you to make the changes needed to improve your wellbeing and get your life back on track.
Is to offer an initial 90-minute assessment session with the aim of developing a thorough understanding of what has brought about your difficulties and what maintains these. From this point we will then plan a structured way forward and decide the therapy approach that is best suited to your needs. I draw on several therapeutic models including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Cognitive Analytic Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Compassionate Mind Therapy and Mindfulness. I will advise you on the suitability of the different approaches based on the evidence for each and we will decide jointly what approach to adopt based on your needs and goals.
I believe it is also important to support the loved ones of those suffering from mental health problems. I know from experience that a mental health problem can put a strain on our relationships; often due to the worry it causes. Loved ones can often struggle to work out how best to offer support and can sometimes struggle with their own feelings of hopelessness. The family work I offer provides specific strategies to help you feel more empowered and to give you a clear way forward.
