Dr Caroline Silcock
DPsych, MSc, CPsychol
I am an integrative practitioner, which means I am trained in a number of different therapeutic approaches. I work predominantly using cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) within a framework of humanistic principles (which values respect for the client’s worldview and an importance on the therapeutic relationship); however I am very much guided by the individual client’s needs and preferences and the problems they bring. I am also interested in incorporating Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and mindfulness in my work, where appropriate.
