Dr Sheri Jarvis
I am a passionate Doctor of Clinical Psychology and have worked 12 years in mental health services. I enjoy getting to know individuals and finding what works well for them. I do this through using evidence-based therapeutic approaches to tailor my intervention to each individual. The therapeutic approaches that I draw upon include cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), systemic therapy, cognitive analytic therapy (CAT) as well as developmental and attachment theories. My therapeutic approach is client-centred, non-judgemental and compassionate which allows me to provide a safe and supportive space for clients to work on achieving meaningful change.
I have worked in mental health services since 2008 and have provided psychological therapies in the NHS since 2012. I currently work as the Lead Clinical Psychologist in an NHS service that supports schools and colleges in understanding and supporting children and young people’s wellbeing.
My areas of interest include mental health difficulties experienced by children, young people and adults such as anxiety, panic, low mood, phobias, low self-esteem and OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder). The areas in which I have developed a more specialist knowledge are neurodevelopmental difficulties, learning disabilities and perinatal mental health.
I am registered with HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council), which upholds high standards in professional codes of practice, qualification and ongoing training.
