SPECIALIST IN Anxiety and Mood Disorders • Trauma and Stress-Related Disorders • Personality Disorders

I am a Clinical Psychologist and a registered member of HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council) and OPP (Portuguese Psychologists Association).

I have over 10 years of experience working as a Clinical Psychologist. My professional experience is diverse, ranging from inpatient to community settings. I have experience with depression and mood-related disorders (Bipolar), anxiety disorders (e.g., Social Anxiety, Panic Disorder), and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders. I have also experience with trauma and stress-related disorders, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders, as well as with long-standing and treatment resistant mental health difficulties, including Personality Disorders (Borderline Personality Disorder, amongst other Personality Disorders).

Finally, I have worked in the past with people presenting with eating difficulties, including Anorexia Nervosa.

I am available to work short or long term with clients, taking into consideration the different levels of complexity of different difficulties and presentations.

I provide Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy interventions, including the “third wave” CBT approaches (such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), as well as schema-therapy based interventions (used generally with treatment-resistant and long-standing difficulties).

Every intervention I offer is tailor-made to the individual client’s needs.
If you have any queries at all about what I offer, please feel free to send me a message. I am happy to help.

SPECIALIST IN AMERICAN EXPATRIATES • ADDICTIONS • WORK RELATED STRESS • RELATIONSHIP ISSUES • EXPATRIATE RELOCATION STRESS • FAMILY DYNAMICS • PTSD • ANGER MANAGEMENT • ANXIETY • DEPRESSION • LOW SELF ESTEEM • ADHD

Hello, my name is Ann and I am a registered member of the BACP. I have significant experience in online counselling and as a result I firmly believe in its benefits. I have done online and phone counselling myself and I found it to be effective. I've worked with lots of people who have never experienced counselling before and I am aware that this can be an anxiety provoking and nervous experience. However, based on my experience I am of the opinion that the release of speaking about something which you may have kept private for a long time is extremely cathartic. If you've come this far, I can offer you confidential and encouraging support through whatever it is you wish to work through. You may not even know what that is! Just that it might be time to talk to someone. My previous career was in the corporate world where I worked for over fifteen years in the beer industry. I'm an American expatriate having first moved to London in 2004. One of my special areas of interest is helping American expats adjust emotionally and psychologically with all the differences they face in the United Kingdom. I know because I faced the same challenges. In addition, I can work with any issue you wish to bring to me. As a registered member of BACP, I am committed to my continual personal and professional development and also work in accordance with their ethical framework for good practice.

Lauren Stock - Therapist

SPECIALIST IN DEPRESSION (chronic long term or recent episode) • PANIC DISORDER • STRESS MANAGEMENT • SOCIAL PHOBIA • LOW SELF ESTEEM • GENERALISED ANXIETY DISORDER • OCD • MANAGEMENT OF SELF HARM THOUGHTS and ACTS

To put quite simply, I feel that all individuals experience different levels of adversity and emotional pain at various moments in life. The extent to which we cope with this depends on factors ranging from our early experiences of nurturing, family and friendship groups, financial and social deprivation to our daily acts of self care and our values.

When we come up against problems such as crippling self doubt, self attacking thoughts, hopelessness, suicidal thoughts, panic and obsessional worrying, it is important that we should receive safe, effective and supportive help. I believe that offering people the opportunity to tell their story from wherever feels right, to understand their problems in detail and to decide the various directions to take is a form of self care.

The majority of my professional experience has been withthe NHS as a psychologist working in the field of primary care mental health, hospital outpatients and Public Health for the last 10 years. This has involved developing and running self-management groups for managing common mental health difficulties and also helping GPs to identify early signs of depression in order to manage their symptoms sooner. My current role involves working in a team with Psychiatrists, Social Workers, Nurses and GPs to offer mental health treatment planning.
I continue to work for the NHS in the main because I feel that this reflects the realities of life and the systems which continue to challenge us all.
