About Dr. Denise A. Freeman CPsychol, PsychD, MSc, BA (Hons), HCPC Registered

I am passionate about people and I excel at resolving problems. My aim is to understand your presenting issue in depth, look for patterns in relationships and current behaviour and to work with you to formulate effective solutions. 


Depending on your needs, I can employ a wide variety of psychological models and techniques (CBT, psychodynamic, person-centered, EMDR) and work integratively. That is, using integrative psychotherapy, your therapy is tailored to your specific need for optimum results.


Being experienced, well read and informed on the latest in psychological trends and tools, I apply contemporary research, psychological theory as well as psychological assessments to formulate for a variety of occupational and life challenges including anxiety, depression, body dysmorphia, work stress- all  in a safe, warm and confidential setting. Client safety and integrity is of utmost importance, being informed by the Code of Ethics and Conduct, as stipulated by The British Psychological Society.


I am happy to work on a one-to-one setting or you may choose to see me with your partner, or with your family. Recognising that a weekly face-to-face session is not always possible for many individuals, including busy executives who travel extensively or are based abroad, I offer an individually tailored service that we can design together, combining personal meetings with Skype and/or telephone sessions to maintain regular contact.


For your assurance I am an AXA, BUPA, AVIVA, ALLIANZ, CIGNA, WPA AND VITALITY HEALTH/PRUDENTIAL healthcare provider.

Therapy is a gift and she knows exactly how to use it

5 50 Psychologist Consultation

I spent years thinking that I should just "power through" a breakdown or I was "being too sensitive" when I couldn't get out of bed, when, in reality, I had severe anxiety and depression. Dr. Freeman helped me get through the darkest time of my life and realise the male stigma with depression was dangerously outdated. If you're struggling with mental health, please talk to Dr. Freeman. Therapy is a gift and she knows exactly how to use it.

I am a work in progress, finally in the present and hopeful for the future

5 50 Counselling

For the first time in my life, I was able to open up and deal with painful situations from the past. I felt a great deal of trust in Denise and she enabled me to face and resolve these issues. I am a work in progress, finally in the present and hopeful for the future. I have no reservations in recommending Denise as a warm, caring professional therapist and I will always be grateful for her insight and help.

She is s great professional with a great wealth of knowledge while her approach is very practical giving concrete solutions to my particular issues.

She has been very insightful, pinpointed my issues very quickly and helped me deal with my anxiety

5 50 Psychologist Consultation

Dr Freeman has been very direct, structured and adapted her counselling to my work-related anxiety. I felt she was always entirely focused on my case during our sessions. She has been very insightful, pinpointed my issues very quickly and helped me deal with my anxiety in a sustainable manner. I not only have tools to manage my anxiety but also detect any triggers earlier, hence avoid any worsening of the symptoms. Each session enlightened me. I am immensely grateful to her.

No regrets whatsoever; I enjoy every single day more because of her

5 50 Psychologist Consultation

Been seeing Denise for about 5 months. Life-changing sessions have really helped me get more out of my life and spend less time thinking, more time doing. Very caring, real, with a sense of humour and a strong touch of reality. Has been able to understand, relate and 'translate' my problems into solutions. No regrets whatsoever; I enjoy every single day more because of her.

Without no doubt, I can recommend her sessions

5 50 Psychotherapist Consultation

It is clear that Denise is an experienced, well-rounded therapist who is able to respond to individual needs with different strategies. Through her listening skills, she helped me to identify the bigger picture and she could give practical advice on how to reflect on old, and apply fresh thinking patterns to daily life.

Without no doubt, I can recommend her sessions. It's fun. (Male, 29)

She is the perfect combination of kind listening and rational advice

5 50 Psychologist Consultation

Dr Freeman helped me through one of the toughest times in my life. I found going to see a therapist a really daunting prospect, but from the 1st session with Dr Freeman, I felt such relief and had confidence that her approach with therapy would support and guide me back to health.

After suffering from burnout at work and then getting panic attacks and anxiety as a result, the tools she gave me to look at situations differently and abandon unhelpful ways of thinking were a crucial part of my healing journey. She is the perfect combination of kind listening and rational advice. As I continued to feel better she coached and directed me to new resources that have really made a difference between just coping to now taking positive steps forward in my personal growth.

From a practical aspect, it was very hassle-free to make an appointment with Dr Freeman using the online booking system and with multiple locations, it means you can access this wonderful therapist when you need her most!

I felt like each session was very productive

5 50 Psychotherapist Consultation

Dr D is a quick problem-solver and in many ways a teacher. I particularly liked her practical exercises and the way she made me reflect on a problem, looking at it from different angles and through a new light.

Her focus, dedication to sharing knowledge and wisdom - I felt like each session was very productive. She is also a friendly and direct counsellor, which brings a human touch to therapy.

She asks the right questions but also helps you immediately with advice

5 50 Psychologist Consultation

Dr Freeman was excellent, she's a therapist that listens. She asks the right questions but also helps you immediately with advice.

My insurance suggested it and I looked up the choices I was given. Dr Freeman's background and expertise were what made me go to her. Her scheduling calendar is also a plus!

The therapist is experienced, open-minded, nice, joyful and good at what she does

5 50 Psychologist Consultation

During the introduction session, I knew that Denise was the right person to get in contact with. The ice was broken when she mentioned: "I am direct in my way of working and also work with a sense of humour". Exactly what I needed.

Denise is experienced, open-minded, nice, joyful and good at what she does.

I would highly recommend them to everyone that going through a tough period in their life to reach out and speak to her. Life goes with ups and downs. You can't always go through things by yourself or with a family member or friend. Denise can help.

Anxiety - Alternative Treatment

Anxiety is used to describe feelings of worry, fear and unease. Typically, it incorporates both the emotional and physical sensations we experience when worried or nervous. Anxiety is related to the ‘fight or flight’ response and, while unpleasant, this is a normal reaction when our body perceives a threat. We will all feel anxious at some time and it’s very common to feel tense or unsure about a potentially stressful situation, such as an exam, starting a new job, or moving home. However, some of us will be affected more than others. Despite being a normal experience, if these feelings are very strong or are lasting a long time, it can be overwhelming.

Couples Therapy

Couples counselling (which can also be referred to as marriage guidance) is a form of therapy that looks to improve communication and resolve issues within an intimate relationship. In contrast to counselling for relationship issues, which can be undertaken solely through individual sessions, couples counselling is a term applied to talk therapy for two people within a relationship. With this in mind, counsellors who offer this form of therapy should have the relevant training to help them work with the dynamics of a couple. While couples counselling is ideally suited to couples attending the sessions together, if your partner is reluctant you can look to speak to a couples counsellor on your own to begin with. You may find your partner wants to join you after you have had some initial sessions alone - or you may find it helpful to intersperse couple sessions with individual sessions. In regards to the techniques used, some of the work you do will take place within your counselling sessions themselves - however many couples counsellors will also ask you to carry out 'homework'. Typically your counsellor will ask you either to do a task or discuss something specific when you get home. During your next session you will get the chance to talk about your homework, discuss any challenges you came up against and how the experience made you both feel.

Dr Dr Denise Freeman

Biography:
My interest in psychology began in 1991 when I became interested in the psychographics of advertising. In 1998 I volunteered as a counselor working with juveniles and in 2006 embarked on an epic academic sojourn which culminated in the award of Doctor of Counselling Psychology, where I am now a chartered psychologist and a member of the Health Care Practitioners Council (HCPC). I have extensive experience in supporting older adults with health-related issues-including coping with cancer, bereavement, anxiety and depression; working relationally with mature adults with life and occupational challenges and supporting young patients with emotional and behavioural disorders. I have a natural ability to engage, empathise, put patients at ease, build and maintain lasting relationships. Having worked in Finland, The Netherlands, U.S.A, Romania, Malaysia and Nepal, I have a rich, insightful and balanced socio-cultural worldview.
