Hello. I am Dr Virginia Kellond, an accredited Clinical Psychologist with a doctorate in clinical psychology and years of experience in the NHS and private practice. 

 

Clinical psychologists are doctorate-level professionals who have received training in research methods and techniques for the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of mental health problems, including issues with relationships.

 

They are trained in the NHS to work with individuals of different ages with behavioural, emotional and psychological distress that gets in the way of everyday functioning and wellbeing.

I specialise in supporting people who find themselves in repeated patterns of thinking and behaving that either never worked quite well or no longer work for the person. This can manifest itself in many ways including, repeated problems with:

 

  • work (e.g. anxiety, self-consciousness, overworking, avoidance of work, high levels of stress...),

  • in intimate relationships (e.g. conflict, avoidance, difficulties with feeling connected and difficulties with communication...) 

  • friendships (e.g. avoiding talking about oneself, always focusing on others, always having a similar role in friendships that do not meet one's needs...)

  • the relationship a person has with themselves (issues with identity and self, self-esteem; hypercriticalness...).

 

People may also find themselves stuck in unhelpful repeated ways of coping with thoughts, feelings and relationships and this can have a significant and detrimental impact on wellbeing and quality of life. Problems such as poor sleep, anxiety, OCD, up and down moods are often the byproduct of difficulties with coping.
