Chartered Clinical Psychologist – Dr Petra Carlsson-Mitchell

In my private practice, INPSYCHOLOGY, I specialise in Psychological therapies to people over the age of 18, who experience psychological, emotional and relational difficulties that have a debilitating impact on their quality of life. 

I offer individually tailored psychological therapy to work alongside each person to; make sense of what have caused their difficulties, develop a sense of self and identifying personal needs, strengthen resources and skills to cope with the ups and downs of life. The goal of therapy, as I see it, is an overall improvement in the person’s general wellbeing as well as equipping them to continue to grow and thrive.

To carry out these fundamental changes, I implement evidence based psychological therapies that are responsive to difficulties related to: complex trauma, PTSD, loss, grief, lack of sense of self, interpersonal difficulties, low self-worth and self-confidence, shame, guilt, depression and anxiety. 

My core service involves offering individual therapy.  However, mental health concerns, particularly when they are long term and deep rooted can be very stressful for people who stand close to the individual and my service also extends to offer psychological sessions and consultations for parents, partners carers and couples. 

The client is at the heart of therapy. I take an active non-judgemental stance to ensure that their needs are met, they feel safe and listened to. And, I cheerlead clients to stay motivated through therapy by encouraging them to take responsibility and ownership of their work.

I offer a free 15-minute telephone consultation as well as a reduced rate Early Consultation session. This is a pre-therapy session where we would begin to make sense of your difficulties and weigh up the pros and cons for entering into therapy. Or, if you just have a question, please don’t hesitate to contact me by email or by phone on 07931583115.
