Justine Pulver

I am a Consultant Forensic Psychologist based in the practice in Haywards Heath near Brighton, Sussex. I can also provide therapy over the telephone or on Skype if appropriate. On occasion, after assessment, it is sometimes possible for me to work with clients in their own homes if it is difficult to physically access therapy due to difficulties with childcare.

I have worked with women, men and teenagers in hospitals, other institutions and private practice, addressing issues including: depressionanxiety & panic attacks, phobias, anger and aggression, relationship and family issues, trauma-related issues, post traumatic stress disorderpersonality disorder, self harm, and suicidal thoughts and behaviours and overcoming stigma.

My Experience

I have over 20 years experience supporting people to come to terms with past events and helping them make changes in their lives. I have a warm, empathic style and have been told that I am able to put people at ease when talking about difficult issues.

I work with clients both individually and in groups, and am trained in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapyand Schema Therapy.

I am an experienced clinical supervisor, providing supervision for other clinicians including qualified psychologists and those in training. I also provide training in a range of areas including risk assessment, working with personality disorder & developing therapeutic skills.

I am a fully chartered member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC), the regulatory body for psychologists in the UK.

As well as working in the practice from Haywards Heath, I also provide medico-legal assessments for court.
