Psychological and trauma therapy in the Reigate, Redhill and Horley area, Surrey
with clinical psychologist Dr Katherine Preedy CPsychol AFBPsS
Psychological therapy has been shown to be helpful in managing a vast array of issues including:
• Post-natal depression
• Grief and loss
• Trauma and PTSD
• Eating disorders and body image issues
• Weight management
I am trained in a number of different therapies including CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing), Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), Schema Therapy and others. You can find some useful information on the different types of therapy and what to expect from them on the website for UK organisation Supporting Safe Therapy.
As a clinical psychologist my choice of treatments offered are influenced by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines, current evidence base and best practice. I also take into account your personal situation and psychological style.
When we meet for the first time we’ll have an initial assessment over one to three sessions to discuss your difficulties together. We’ll then make a plan for therapy, including how many sessions you might need, how regularly we’ll meet, and when we will review this process.
Each therapy session typically lasts 50 minutes.
I also offer supervision to other professionals and this can be arranged upon request.
Everyone has to deal with difficult times or distressing emotions at some point in their life. I aim to offer a safe and confidential space to help you understand what might be happening and learn to manage or overcome any painful experiences and feelings.
