Hello, my name is Zuzana Willetts and I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC) offering private therapy, supervision and consultation in the Lincoln (UK)area.
Reaching the status of Chartership is an indicator that, as a Professional, I am working to the highest ethical standards and that I have reached high levels of competence. Chartership is a mark of commitment to lifelong learning and an achievement of high levels of academic attainment coupled with supervised practice.
The majority of my week is spent working as a Clinical Psychologist within the NHS. I have been working for the NHS since 2008 in various therapeutic roles as part of my training and career path.
On a more personal level, I am a down to earth person, inquisitive, empathic, dedicated and my aim is to support my clients on their journey to recovery. I aim to help you to become more independent and self-sufficient in managing the problems and difficulties you experience, help you to understand how you might have arrived at this point in your life, and where you can go from here and lead a fulfilling life.

Outside of my work commitments I enjoy reading books, going out for walks, and sightseeing either locally or around the UK, and I find gardening very relaxing. All of these activities help me to unwind after day at work, to maintain good work-life balance and to maintain self-care, preventing burn out.
