Venetia is a clinical psychologist and cognitive-behavioural therapist with 10 years clinical experience. Guided by research findings as well as by her clients’ needs and goals, she tends to work flexibly drawing on different theories and techniques, including cognitive-behavioural, compassionate-focused, dialectical behavioural, and psychodynamic.
In her NHS practice, Venetia specialises in working with complex depression, anxiety and trauma. Over the years, Venetia has worked both with adults and adolescents, who sought help with specific psychological conditions including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), addictions issues, anger and aggression, dislike of appearance, eating difficulties, psychosexual problems, and problems relating to particular life events/transitions, including bereavements and losses. She has also worked with clients who experience broader difficulties, including a sense of having lost direction in life, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, medically unexplained symptoms, and problems following past/childhood difficulties, including abuse.
Venetia started her career by working with clients with substance/alcohol dependency and/or psychosis in forensic and community settings. She has a doctorate in clinical psychology, a Masters in Psychoanalytic Studies by the Tavistock Clinic as well as a postgraduate diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and a Masters in Addiction Studies by the Institute of Psychiatry.Back
