Dr Kirstie Daken

Clinical Psychologist

Hi there! I'm Kirstie.

I have experience working with clients from across the lifespan with many different backgrounds and presentations. I am currently taking on adult clients. I am a friendly and warm therapist who will work with you in a person-centred approach to help you with this phase of your life. My therapeutic approach is adaptable to your needs, with a collaborative approach to working towards your goals. I practice evidence-based therapies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing (MI) and elements of others as relevant.

Health Psychology and Sexual Health

I am comfortable treating a range of presentations, including anxiety, depression, stress, chronic health, emotional issues, relationship issues and interpersonal conflict. I have a particular interest in health psychology (including chronic illness and sexual health). Your mental health and physical health can largely impact each other, as such I like working with clients to address the psychological factors that could be impacting wellbeing.

I am happy to work with people from all backgrounds and all interests, including non-traditional relationships, and aim to provide a safe place to explore your personal goals.

I look forward to meeting you and working towards your goals together.
