Having trained specifically in both CBT and Clinical Psychology, Vicky is able to flexibly draw on a range of evidence-based approaches. She works together with families and young people to collaboratively agree on what approach makes most sense for them so that they can get the most out of therapy sessions. Vicky’s work often involves including the wider system to help support lasting change, which can include working with schools, the family, and other services.
Vicky has a special interest in compassion-based therapies and mindfulness. She believes that therapy is not just about reducing distress but also about helping a person thrive. This is one of the reasons she loves working with young people so much, since there are often rapidly developing and discovering themselves. Vicky enjoys being creative in therapy and working with young people to ensure therapy is engaging so that they can be inspired to understand themselves better through therapy.
When Vicky is not working privately, she works in the NHS part-time with high-risk offenders diagnosed with personality disorders in a complex needs service.
