Kael Cockcroft is an experienced Clinical Psychologist who provides therapy and coaching for emotional, psychological or relationship issues.
We work within a brief consultative model which is goal orientated, collaborative and bespoke. Together we will decide on which therapeutic modality will work best for your presenting need and for your personal approach to life.
A focused presenting problem usually responds best to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) within a change cycle model which includes relapse prevention and recovery maintenance strategies.
Long-standing or complex needs may include some cognitive and/or behavioural elements, but will also need relational, interpersonal or systems approaches; Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Mentalization Based Therapy (MBT) or Schema Focused Therapy (SFT).
What we do will be determined by what is working for you, in line with the stage of your progress, your personality, lifestyle as well as your way of learning.
Kael is a skilled and experienced Psychologist and Psychotherapist with a track record of delivering high-quality therapy for individuals, couples, families and groups.
