Dr Gursharan Lotey
Gursharan obtained her BSc Psychology in 2008 and has since studied at Masters and Doctorate level qualifying as a Clinical Psychologist in 2015.
Her clinical training and 20 years’ experience in the NHS means she has worked extensively with clients of all ages, from young children to teens, adults and those later in life. This has included a number of settings including hospital, community and outpatient clinics, addressing a range of psychological & emotional concerns.
Gursharan has experience of working with a variety of issues such as: Anxiety/Stress, Anger difficulties, Depression, Confidence/Self-esteem, Trauma, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Relationship difficulties, Bereavement, and Shame.
Her specialties include:
• Child & Young Person Mental Health
• Culturally sensitive therapy
• Women’s Mental Health
Gursharan works in a collaborative, non-judgmental and person-centred way. She is trained in a number of different therapeutic modalities, and often merge therapeutic ideas so that you’re getting a personalised approach to your particular needs. Some of the therapies I use include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Systemic ideas. Rather than using a “one size fits all” approach to therapy, I believe it is important to view people in a holistic and humanistic way. I consider other areas of health, such as diet, sleep, and the body which often impact on mood and emotional well-being. So whether you’re looking for support with low mood, anxiety, confidence, or want to better understand yourself or your relationships, I can help.
