Professional background and experience

I’m a clinical psychologist with experience working with adults across the lifespan. I have over 10 years experience working in the mental health field. I have worked in a range of primary and secondary NHS services and private sector services. I currently work part time in the NHS within community pain management and diabetes services. I work with adults, individuals, couples and groups and I offer short and long term therapy. My therapeutic interests include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT) and EMDR.

My clinical practice is underpinned by an integrative approach whereby I draw on a range of evidence based psychological approaches to meet the needs of each individual. This enables the development of a therapy plan that focuses on improving quality of life. I believe the most important aspect of successful psychotherapy is the therapeutic relationship between the client and the therapist. I aim to offer a compassionate, open and trusting relationship to enable clients to work on their difficulties and make progress in achieving more lasting changes in their life.

What to expect from our Therapists

We carry out rigorous checks and vet all our therapists before they join the team. They must meet with our high standards of professional specification which includes:

This means that the mental health professional you see will be qualified, experienced and competent.

We are a private mental health clinic and have a number of therapists with different specialities. Because of this, we can offer therapies to help with a wide range of mental health issues from Anxiety to PTSD and child psychology.

First, we carry out a triage step during a 15-minute free initial telephone consultation. Depending on the challenges you’re facing, we will then recommend a counsellor, CBT therapist or clinical psychologist.

We also have clinic locations throughout the North, so there is usually one not too far from you.

As a result, we can usually offer an appointment quickly and at a time and place convenient for you. But, above all, tailored to your needs.

Please note, not all of our therapists work from all our clinic locations. Contact us for information on which therapists it is possible to see at which locations.

As well as Hannah we have a number of other Clinical Psychologists, CBT Therapists and Counsellors in our team.
