Dr Sally Conway Clinical Psychologist (HCPC registered)
My passion is working with adults who are stuck or struggling. I work remotely, so all my appointments are provided via telephone or Zoom video call. I work very much together with you to figure out what is holding you back and discover ways you can transform your life for yourself.
I have extensive training in, and experience of, psychological theory and therapeutic practice. As a result I can quickly understand your issues, how they developed and what keeps them going. Drawing on a range of therapies I offer an integrated approach based on your individual needs and preferences.
The key factor for change will be the collaboration between my training and experience in various models of therapy alongside your commitment to change and expert knowledge of you. Each and every person is unique and therapy can only be helpful if you are ready to engage fully in the process.
You will need to be open to experiencing challenging thoughts and emotions and sharing your experiences with me. We can focus on the here and now, think about the impact of your past, or do both if it will help you move forward. However the therapy evolves, I will ensure you are always met with warmth, empathy and acceptance.
A good therapy can provide you with the keys you need to open the door of future possibilities. So, if you are struggling with painful thoughts, feelings or memories; having problems in your work health or relationships; or in how you feel about yourself, then I'd like to help.

Since 2001, I have gained a wealth of experience working with adults in various healthcare settings. I have provided helpline support for adults with anxiety-related difficulties; worked with adults nearing the end of life in a hospice; supported adults with substance misuse issues in the community; coordinated the care of elderly and disabled adults in social care settings; and provided psychological services to adults with severe and complex mental health issues in a private inpatient health setting. During this time I developed a good grounding in psychological skills such as solution-focused therapy, motivational interviewing, trauma stabilisation and emotion regulation work.
