Approach

Judy is very warm, caring, and empathic in her therapeutic approach. She believes in the importance of creating a non-judgemental, supportive space, where clients feel safe enough to open up about the difficulties they have been experiencing. Fundamental to her clinical work is the belief that all clients are the experts in their own lives and experiences. Therefore, Judy is passionate about working in partnership with clients in therapy, helping them to recognise how their own strengths and resources (and those within their wider contexts) can help them to achieve their goals, and improve their quality of life. Judy strives to work in an empowering way, by encouraging clients to see themselves as being separate from their difficulties.

Experience

Judy is a chartered clinical psychologist. She completed her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at University College London, and is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council, and the British Psychological Society. Judy currently works as a senior clinical psychologist in the NHS.

Judy primarily uses Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in her clinical work, and has significant experience in supporting clients with a range of difficulties, such as depression, psychosis, and anxiety (e.g. social anxiety, post trauma stress disorder, panic, and worry). However, she often integrates elements from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, and Compassion Focussed therapy in her delivery of CBT. In addition to this, Judy has completed advanced training in the Tree of Life methodology, a Narrative Therapy approach to working with individuals and groups affected by trauma. Judy has a special interest in improving the accessibility and acceptability of psychological therapies for clients from diverse communities.
