Dr Renata Bryce

Clinical Psychologist
I am a Clinical Psychologist with many years of practice in the NHS. I am a kind and compassionate person who holds strong values of providing access to mental health care to all in a safe and non-judgmental manner. I adopt an integrative approach to therapy and work with both Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy models.

My work also involves the use of mindfulness and compassion focus therapy aspects. I have experience in working with adults and older adults from multicultural and ethnic diverse communities who experience a variety of mental health difficulties such as depression, anxiety disorders such as phobias, health anxiety, and obsessive compulsive disorders. I can also help those who are struggling with identity issues and relationships. I also have experience in helping people navigate the difficulties in adjusting to physical health problems such as cancer and diabetes.

I also specialise in old age psychology and have a vast experience working with older adults with severe and enduring mental health disorders but also those who have been recently diagnosed with dementia. As part of the dementia diagnosis process I also carry out neuropsychological assessments in a daily basis and provide post-diagnostic support to both the patient and their carers therefore I also have experience in working with family members providing them both with psychoeducation about the disease but also psychological support. The dementia diagnosis brings uncertainty to both the person with dementia and their loved ones and I can help them navigate this pathway using acceptance and compassion.

I am a truly believer that there is no health without mental health and like to adopt biopsychosocial models when thinking about someone’s current difficulties because of the believe that we are influenced by different aspect of our lives in a present time. I am passionate to promote mental health care access to all and across the lifespan. I migrated to this country in 2003 from Brazil and can relate to the struggles of living in a different country and trying to adjust and adapt to a new culture. I can also provide therapy in Portuguese.

I am registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC). I am also a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) including the Clinical Psychology Division and the Faculty of the Psychology Older People and have close links with the Division of Neuropsychology. I have a Masters in Health Psychology and a PhD in Epidemiology.
Clinical Psychologist, fluent in English and Portuguese with interests in Health Psychology, Neuro Psychology, Cancer, Dementia, Anxieties and Depression.
