My name is Paulien and I am an experienced Consultant Clinical Psychologist and CBT therapist, offering a safe and confidential environment in which to overcome psychological difficulties. I provide evidence based treatment for a broad range of mental health conditions, working mainly with adults. I use a strengths-based approach, empowering individuals to help them understand and overcome their difficulties. I work integratively, drawing on a range of models, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR).

about your difficulties, your background, and your objectives.
Together we can understand where you are and where you'd like to be, and develop your therapy plan. Whether this is your first experience with therapy or a new moment in an ongoing process, I will endeavour to make you feel empowered on your road to good mental health.

What is CBT?
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a type of talking therapy. It focusses on how thoughts, feelings and behaviour are interconnected. It can help you manage your difficulties by changing the way you think and behave, with the aim of reducing psychological distress and enhancing psychological wellbeing. CBT has been demonstrated to help with a wide range of mental health difficulties, like anxiety, depression, OCD and trauma. Although in CBT the emphasis is usually on the present, it can be helpful to also talk about the past to get insight in how your beliefs about yourself and other people developed. In CBT you can learn new coping strategies and skills, which you can practise in between the sessions. You will be able to explore your difficulties in a safe and non-judgmental therapeutic environment.

I provide face-to-face sessions in Canterbury and online sessions via video link.
