Dr Annie Moreland (MACantab., DClinPsych.)
Registered with the HCPC and the
British Psychological Society
I am to help children, young people and adults using effective psychological treatments for a wide range of psychological problems. All interventions are tailored to suit the individual and are informed by the evidence base.
The kinds of difficulties you might see a psychologist for include:
• Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
• Low mood/Depression
• Low self-worth, self-criticism
• Anxiety disorders (Phobias, Generalised anxiety disorder, Panic, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Separation Anxiety)
• Eating disorders
• Occupational Stress
• Problems of anger and temper control
• Attachment related difficulties/Challenging behaviours
• Challenges related to parenting
• Eating, sleeping and other childhood difficulties
What is a Clinical Psychologist?
Clinical psychologists have a psychology degree, work as an assistant psychologist and then undergo a three year clinical/research training to doctoral level.
Clinical psychologists are trained to draw on current research knowledge and national guidance and combine this with the individual’s presenting mental health, development and psychological functioning to determine the treatment or intervention most likely to have a lasting beneficial effect on symptoms and general well-being.
Following this analysis, a “formulation” of the difficulties being experienced is drawn up. This combines relevant factors from the client’s history and current state with psychological models and the latest research knowledge. From this a set of proposals for managing the problem/s or treatment plan is drawn up, discussed and agreed with the client. Treatment may therefore, combine any therapeutic approaches which are indicated by the formulation.
Assessment and therapy appointments:
An initial assessment appointment can take at least 1.5 hours and sometimes requires a second appointment. Treatment sessions are usually about 1 hour in duration though longer may be scheduled (though this would always be agreed in advance with the individual concerned).
I work at Cowan House, Ellenborough Park North, Weston-Super-Mare, BS23 1XQ. There is free parking for Cowan House clients.
