Dr Sara Simblett
Dr Sara Simblett is a Health and Care Professional Council (HCPC) registered Clinical Psychologist. She completed her DClinPsy qualification at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, King’s College London, following an academic PhD from the University of Cambridge and MSc qualification in Neuropsychology from the University of Bristol.
Sara uses Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to help explore thoughts and actions that may be maintaining emotional difficulties, combined with an integrative approach that draws on several other psychological models. These include supporting people to develop a compassionate self-understanding (from Compassion Focussed Therapy – CFT); to regain purpose and meaning by exploring personal values (from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy – ACT); and to be more aware of the present moment (from Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy – MBCT). Sara is committed to the provision of psychological therapy that is offered in a respectful and non-judgemental way. She believes in focussing on each individual, couple or family. She works collaboratively to support people to understand their strengths, deal with difficult problems, and achieve important goals and aspirations. She employs a multitude of creative solutions and, where helpful, incorporates her academic knowledge and experience of using technology to assist with these challenges.
Sara is trained to provide therapy for people across a wide age spectum, from children to older adults living with depression, coping with anxiety, experiencing low self-esteem, surviving stress, or dealing with trauma and related loss. She would welcome helping with any of these, or related mental health issues. Alongside this she has worked in specialist Neuropsychology services within the NHS to support people with neurological conditions. She is also is keen to provide theraputic support for people who are experiencing emotional difficulties whilst living with long-term conditions and illnesses or adjusting to new physical health diagnoses.
