Dr. Erin Carroll, BSc (Hons), MSc, PhD, DClinPsy, PGDip (CBT).
I have been providing specialist assessment and therapy for 13 years, most recently as a Senior Clinical Psychologist in NHS adult mental health services in central London. I also have a private psychology practice in Tunbridge Wells, Kent. During this time I have met many people looking for help with what can feel to them like insurmountable difficulties. Most often, those I have worked with have found that through the process of thinking about their difficulties honestly and committedly with a therapist, they become less confusing and distressing. It then becomes possible to choose to act in a way that brings about the change they need to feel a bit more in control and content in life.
With the right therapist, psychotherapy can be life-changing
I have been trained in a number of approaches to understanding our psychological difficulties, and am able to integrate my understanding of these models in order to benefit the person I am working with most effectively. I work within a psychodynamic framework, and have also received specialist training in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and am accredited with the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists (BABCP). When you first meet with me, I will try to get to know some of the reasons that have brought you to meet with me, and some of the things that might be contributing to how you are feeling. I will also share my ideas with you, so that we can see if you find these ideas helpful and whether continuing to work together might begin to bring about the change you are seeking.
