Let us show you how psychology can help you

The present is the only time that any of us have to be alive – to know anything – to perceive – to learn – to change – to heal
- John Kabat Zinn,

Psychology is part of all human experience, intertwined in everything you do, think and feel. A lot of the time we manage to get  through the good and bad times, using our own internal resources and support from those around us. From time to time however, we all need that extra bit of help, were somebody trained and experienced in an aspect of psychological science and talking therapy, whether that be a clinical psychologist, a psychotherapist or a counsellor, to help us process our experiences and move forward with our lives.

Dr. Kristine Abercrombie

 Chartered Clinical Psychologist

Dr. Kristine Abercrombie's primary endeavour as a Clinical Psychologist is to provide clients with a service tailored to meet their individual needs. This is one of the reasons Kristine decided to expand Let's Talk Psychology Service to incorporate the delivery of online and telephone therapy for people who for a variety of reasons may find it difficult to access face-to-face treatment. Is online therapy for you?

Kristine studied and worked within the field of psychology for the past 18 years. Kristine completed a BSc in Applied Psychology and a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. Kristine is a Chartered member of the British Psychological Society, and registered with the Health and Care Professions Council.  Chartered membership reflects the highest standard of psychological knowledge and expertise. Kristine is passionate about providing an effective and easily accessible online therapy and supervision service, and is currently completing a course with the Online Therapy Institute to become a Certified Cyber Facilitator, specialising in online therapy and supervision.

 

Kristine specializes in providing psychological treatments to adolescents, adults and older adults, experiencing a wide range of psychological/emotional difficulties.  She assesses her clients and decides whether any particular therapy, or indeed combination of therapies, would be most likely to meet their needs. Kristine's journey in becoming a Clinical Psychologist in addition to her continuing professional development, means that she is trained and experienced in a variety of different psychological approaches. This means her knowledge of what works best for whom, and what has been proven to be effective through research, combined with her clients goals and preferred way of working, enables her to develop a  treatment plan together best suited to help them move forward.

 

From a personal perspective, Kristine attended therapy, and understands what the process is like from a clients perspective and how daunting the prospect can be. Many therapists choose to have therapy to not only improve their own lives but to help them better understand the therapeutic process, enabling them to be more effective therapists.  Kristine feels her own experiences of attending therapy to gain help in managing a chronic back condition and enhance her own self-awareness, has ultimately resulted in  helping others with increased insight and empathy. She is also currently having weekly psychological therapy via videoconferencing, to continue her own personal and professional development, experiencing what it is like to receive therapy via the Internet.
