Hattie Hedgecox

I qualified as a Counselling Psychologist in 2007 and I am a Chartered member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC). I have worked as a Counselling Psychologist for the NHS, the Priory Hospital Group and also in private practice. I specialise in Psychodynamic, Cognitive-Behavioural and Humanistic Therapies. I treat problems in the here-and-now such as: (i) adjusting to traumatic life events (PTSD, loss and bereavement), (ii) anxiety management (panic, avoidance, OCD), as well as longer term problems such as (iii) low self-esteem, eating disturbances, mood disturbances and interpersonal stresses. I specialize in working with adult individuals.

My approach is relational and collaborative where the patient and I make sense of difficulties – where they come from, what keeps them going, what makes it hard to let them go – and in this way, find other ways of being in the world that are not self-defeating, painful or disheartening.
