DR KIRSTY NASH
I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist registered with the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC). I am also a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) psychotherapist accredited with the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) and a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS).
I have 10 years experience of working in the NHS, across a variety of settings. I have worked with individuals experiencing a range of different psychological, behavioural and emotional difficulties in the context of challenging life circumstances.
As a Clinical Psychologist, I am trained to a doctorate level in the use of a variety of therapeutic models. In addition to CBT, I incorporate elements of Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical and Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and systemic theory into my practice.
I offer online therapy removing the geographical barrier to accessing psychological therapy. I am also offering face-to-face sessions in the Somerset area. Please contact me for more information or any questions you have.
Common difficulties I am able to support people with include:
General anxiety and worry
Low mood and depression
Low self-esteem and confidence
I am a recognised, approved clinician and accept referrals via the following insurance companies: AXA, WPA, AVIVA, Cigna.
Please note that I do not offer a crisis or emergency service. If you or someone else's life is in danger please contact the emergency services by dialling 999 or your local crisis services.
