Dr Andrea Davies has worked in the NHS since 1999. She splits her time between private practice and working for the health service with people who are experiencing a range of mental health difficulties, including people who have been admitted to hospital due to their mental health. She is experienced at working with a range of mental health difficulties including:
- Trauma, including violence and sexual assault.
- Childhood trauma, including sexual abuse.
- Psychosis (schizophrenia)
- Bipolar disorder
- Anxiety, including social anxiety, phobias and obsessional compulsive disorder.
- Life transitions
- Relationship Difficulties
Her clinical practice draws from a range of integrated theoretical models, but is heavily influenced by systemic approaches. Systemic psychotherapy has been shown to be effective for people experiencing family and relationship difficulties, mental health difficulties, separation and divorce, eating disorders, violence, self-harm, drug and alcohol misuse and the effects of trauma.
Andrea says “I am interested in taking account of the context of people’s lives; their family and other important relationships. I value people’s own belief systems, their ideas about problem formation and their ideas about change. I have no agenda as to what I think it might be useful for you to talk about; you are the expert of your own life. Together we will negotiate how we can work together towards the changes that you want to make in your life”.
Andrea is registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS), the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).
