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.

"I felt like each session was very productive"

Treatment Received: 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"

Treatment Received: 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 50Reviewed 26 Aug 2018 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: 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.

"Using her techniques and encouragement, I feel confident that I will be able to combat it"
4.5 50Reviewed 12 Aug 2018 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Psychologist Consultation
I was seeing Denise on account of my anxiety and panic attacks. I had 6 sessions in total. After our first session, I immediately felt a sense of relief. Not only did I notice my panic attacks reduce, but I also felt generally happier.

Denise combined various psychological techniques to help me understand my anxiety, how to deal with it in a day-to-day situation. Also, how to improve my general overlook of life.

Whilst I am still working to resolve my anxiety, my panic attacks have heavily reduced. I appreciated Denise's instruction not to use therapy as a crutch but to feel confident in myself. Using her techniques and encouragement, I feel confident that I will be able to combat it.

Thanks so much for your help.

The clinic itself was very comfortable and simple. Great for a therapy setting inducing a clear head and ability to feel at ease when discovering one's internal state.

"Her intuition is extremely sharp, which allowed her to fast track to the issues at hand"
5 50Reviewed 05 Aug 2018 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Psychologist Consultation
Dr Denise is the complete psychologist in my opinion. She has all the traits and skills of what I would expect to experience in a top-level modern day psychologist.

Her intuition is extremely sharp, which allowed her to fast track to the issues at hand. She gave me clarity in some "breakthrough" moments. Which came quite quick in my circumstances while maintaining a safe and supported environment at all times.

You know in your gut when you are working with the top level of any profession and Denise is most certainly there.

Thank you, Denise, for all your help and support.

"It was a really valuable process for me and I am extremely grateful for her support"
5 50Reviewed 29 May 2018 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: CBT - Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Dr. Freeman is an excellent therapist. By combining a few techniques over a 10 session course of CBT, we worked through my fear of flying and the underlying causes for it.

My goal at the beginning was to be in a place where I could cope with a long-haul flight and we succeeded in achieving this.

She is a patient therapist who is structured and clear with her advice. Also someone who clearly gives her patients the space to vent and work through things themselves.

It was a really valuable process for me and I am extremely grateful for her support.

"The doctor changed my life and I would 100% recommend her as a counsellor"
5 50Reviewed 19 Apr 2018 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Psychologist Consultation
I saw Dr Freeman for a series of sessions. She dealt with my problems and issues in a constructive way. She did not sugar coat anything, we worked through the reality of the problem and put structured processes in place to take me forward.

She gave me the confidence to "make leaps" and as a result, she changed my life - it literally is not too big a statement to make. She changed my life and I would 100% recommend her as a counsellor.

Treatment Received: Counselling
I went to see Dr. Freeman for relationship issues. I saw her on a weekly basis for about 3 months. I found our sessions to be supportive and educational. Dr. Freeman had helped me tremendously through my most difficult times. I couldn’t have asked for more. I would highly recommend her services to anyone.

"I genuinely appreciated how she combines her techniques"
4.5 50Reviewed 21 Nov 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Psychologist Consultation
When I started seeing Denise I was in quite a dark place. All aspects of my life didn’t feel right. There were health problems, my career was absolutely undetermined, my marriage didn’t feel right, so my sense of self-worthiness needed a lot of attention.

I genuinely appreciated how Denise combines her techniques; she would listen and be sympathetic with the most sensitive questions, but still, bring up the difficult questions I was trying to bury deep in my brain and avoid answering. In the situations where I need confidence and am afraid to make the next step, she would encourage me and act almost as a life coach.

Denise really takes time to get to know you and each session provides you with a couple of things to look at or to pay attention to. Almost like small tasks to keep you on your new path/ strategy.

I would have no second thoughts recommending Denise to anyone who feels that they would benefit from the therapy.

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.

Counselling
 
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.

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.
