Professional background and experience

Since qualifying in 2005, I have worked in a range of settings with adults experiencing emotional distress, including those with longer-term difficulties, those in crisis and in hospital and those experiencing difficulties for the first time.

My approach is highly adaptive and responsive to the needs of each person I see; I make recommendations informed by the best evidence available and with compassionate understanding of the factors contributing to a person’s distress. My motivation is to enable each individual to develop ways to understand and manage their situation and ultimately to achieve their goals for change. I have much experience implementing compassion focussed therapy (CFT), cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR).

I provide supervision for other professionals interested in CFT and enjoy teaching the principles of compassion and impact of psychological trauma at local universities.

This includes written work; I co-authored a resource in conjunction with NHS England about PTSD in later life and a journal article entitlted:

The systemic interactions between people and their context: Using structured Compassion Focussed Formulations towards change in couples and organisations. Lennox, T. and Kennedy, A.

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.

If you’re interested in  booking an appointment with Dr Tammy Lenox, book a free initial consultation here.

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.
