Dr Alice Turland
Since qualifying as a Clinical Psychologist at the University of Surrey, I have worked full time in NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) in East London, and subsequently in Nottingham. In private practice I support people of all ages.
I take an integrative approach to assessment and therapy. This means that I first aim to get an in depth understanding of the problems a client is struggling with, then draw on a range of therapeutic models to design a treatment package that suits them and their individual needs. The models I use most often include: Compassion Focused Therapy, Systemic Narrative Therapy and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.
I feel very lucky to work in a job where I have the privilege of hearing people's stories, and standing alongside them as they explore change.
I have a lifelong love of performing arts and in my spare time I enjoy acting, both in a local class and, occasionally, professionally on short film projects. I also love to get outdoors and explore new places with my family. Mostly though, like many people, I enjoy the comfort of getting into a good netflix box set (of which there are now too many to count!).
