Dr Zoë Wilson
I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist and Certified Schema Therapist, and have been practising psychotherapy with clients since 2006.
How I Work
My aim is to empower clients to work together with me towards overcoming their difficulties within the context of a safe, trusting and collaborative space. The support and expertise I offer facilitates exploration and understanding of sensitive material, which enables clients to focus on enhancing their quality of life through the awareness they gain, and conscious choices and changes they make.
I have extensive experience of working with individuals across the adult lifespan, with a broad range of emotional, relational and behavioural difficulties. My depth of training and experience means I have the flexibility to work with clients in a focused goal-orientated and/or an open, more exploratory manner depending upon their individual needs. I have formal training in Schema Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person-Centred and Psychodynamic psychotherapy.
What To Expect
Initial sessions form an assessment phase which helps to establish a focus for therapy. Through this process I develop with each client a comprehensive understanding of their presenting difficulties: seeking to understand how they originated and are maintained. As therapy progresses this shared understanding evolves and orientates how we work together. Sessions are attended on a weekly basis, or more frequently if necessary.

These include primary and secondary care NHS services, a staff counselling service, low-cost counselling services and an NHS community mental health team.

I completed my BSc Hons in Psychology in 2001, and began training as a Counselling Psychologist in 2005, after I spent one year working as a Psychology Assistant at HMP Wormwood Scrubs. Prior to this role I worked in television and film.
