Carly is a clinical psychologist, with over 10 years’ experience of working within the NHS and local authority services. She completed her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at Royal Holloway University, and is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

Carly understands that a trusting therapeutic relationship with your psychologist is one of the most important foundations for working towards change. Her primary aim, therefore, is to create an environment for talking where you feel comfortable, respected, and safe enough to try out different ways of approaching or thinking about the problem that brought you here.

Carly views the people who come to therapy as the experts on their own experiences, and so working collaboratively with each person she consults with is an integral part of her approach. In working within the field of psychology and mental health, Carly has been continually struck by the stories of resilience from the people she meets with, despite the multiple challenges they have faced. Carly’s therapeutic approach, therefore, aims to foster and build on the strengths, abilities and skills that she believes people already have when they come to therapy.

Carly has substantial experience of working with a range of presenting problems, including depression and low mood, anxiety disorders (including panic, OCD, PTSD, social anxiety and phobias), stress and worry, adjustment to changes in physical health, bereavement and relationship difficulties. Carly has particular expertise in cognitive assessment and working with issues related to ageing and dementia. Carly appreciates that people and problems don’t exist in isolation, and will therefore often work with couples and families as well.

Carly prides herself on the genuine and compassionate approach she takes to working with the people she meets, whether this be for a one-off consultation, a cognitive assessment, or a short-term piece of psychological therapy. The methods and techniques Carly uses within her sessions will vary depending on what your hopes are for therapy, but she draws mainly on systemic, cognitive-behavioural and third-wave approaches (including mindfulness and acceptance and commitment therapy).

Attention describes the process of perceiving internal or external stimuli and data. We require a narrow or broad focus of attention depending on the type of task we are carrying out. For example when thinking strategically or being creative, focusing on the wider picture means we gather a larger amount of data with which to shape our thoughts and intuitions. In this mode we connect different ideas and concepts, identify patterns and generally experience a flow of thoughts, feelings and ideas.
