Dr Iona Naismith
I am a Doctor of Clinical Psychology with 10 years of experience delivering evidence-based therapies for adults and adolescents. I work with a range of difficulties including depression, anxiety disorders, relationship or interpersonal difficulties, emotion-regulation difficulties, low self-esteem, stress, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), eating disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I specialise in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness, acceptance, interpersonal therapies, and other evidence-based therapies.
I am passionate about promoting therapy as a valuable part of self-care and viewing mental health difficulties as normal reactions to difficult life events. Through experience, I have seen that the techniques learnt in therapy can bring life-altering benefits. In therapy sessions, we’ll work together to understand current problems and find useful tools you can use long-term to solve them.
My key principles are that:
- Therapy should be guided by the best evidence about what helps
- Therapy only works when clients feel truly listened to, valued and respected
- The therapist and client should work together as a team, making changes that fit the client's goals and values.
I completed an undergraduate degree in psychology at the University of Oxford and a doctorate in clinical psychology at University College London. I have worked in various private and public clinics and an award-winning therapy service in North London. I am now a Professor of Psychology at University of the Andes in Colombia, teaching and supervising the Masters in clinical psychology and researching new therapy developments
