Dr Gemma Kothari, Clinical Psychologist.
Enquire re wait times.
I am an experienced clinical psychologist. I qualified in 2007 and currently work in both independent practice and within the NHS in a community mental health team.
Different approaches are used to suit the person. I am an accredited practitioner and supervisor in Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT).
I also use third-wave CBT approaches (such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy & Dialectical Behaviour Therapy) and EMDR to help people with trauma or strong feelings. I have substantial experience of working with people who experience depression, anxiety, psychosis, eating disorders and relationship or interpersonal problems.
I routinely use CAT in my clinical work, both therapeutically and when supervising other clinicians, because of its relational and collaborative stance.
Within my independent practice, I see individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship problems and work issues. I also see people who are having a difficult time for other reasons and need some support to better understand themselves and make changes in their life. I aim to work collaboratively and in-depth with each patient in order to provide to meet the goal of offering the most appropriate care for an individual’s needs. I have a particular interest in working with healthcare professionals, including people in training and experienced clinicians.
Please make contact me if you would like more information. I trust that we can think together about whether CAT is the right approach for you and if we may be able to work together. I look forward to hearing from you.
Working with other colleagues, I have co-authored many academic papers on different topics including: Psychological therapy assessments; Risk factors for negative experiences during psychotherapy; The therapeutic relationship; Drug use, smoking, and drinking among young people in England; key points of intervention for a group of people; Opportunities and obstacles for effective treatment within a particular system and; in a chapter in a Home Office publication.
I have also contributed to a publication by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence.
