Professional Doctorate in Clinical PsychologyCall Now
My name is Dr Anna Lose and I am a qualified Chartered Clinical Psychologist, with a number of years of experience working within the NHS and privately.
As a clinician, I take an empathic and compassionate approach, whilst at the same time helping you to find ways of challenging yourself on the road to self-improvement. When I say self-improvement, I mean you improving your ability to nurture yourself, utilising more helpful thoughts and actions. We begin by exploring any current difficulties you may be experiencing or what you would like to be different in your life. We then think about your past in an attempt to understand what you went through. This can be brief, or it may take a little longer, but it is necessary in order to help us uncover your inner strengths and resources that have helped you through your life. At other times the narrative of your life becomes clearer as we go through sessions and you acquire new skills. In our sessions, I will provide you with a non-judgemental open space, where you can talk about what is on your mind, whilst sometimes redirecting us to how this may relate to your life overall or where you aspire to be. My preferred way of working is integrative – adapting my approach to the individual’s needs, drawing on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and systemically-informed approaches. This is because Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is the first-line evidence-based treatment for a number of difficulties. Additionally, I am always guided by you in choosing how we work on reaching your therapy goals.
I offer therapy services to adults, children, and families with a wide range of difficulties and concerns. Throughout my career, I have worked with individuals of different age groups and in a variety of settings, including in people’s homes, schools, NHS clinics, and on inpatient wards. I have experience of helping people with difficulties, such as anxiety, stress, depression/low mood, phobias, OCD, body image issues, relationship and family difficulties, and others. I also have experience of working with adults and children with health conditions, including, but not limited to, chronic pain, asthma, and difficulties related to cranioplasty, gastroenterology, orthopaedic issues, and burns.
