As a Clinical Psychologist, Tena provides tailored
Psychological Therapy for young people and adults.
Schema Therapy (primary modality)
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
Areas of Interest
Long term depression and anxiety
Bereavement, grief and loss
Personality disorders (i.e. BPD)
As each client is unique, a tailored written treatment plan is formulated and negotiated for each client to ensure it meets their needs.
Schema Therapy helps clients meet their needs, develop more constructive ways of coping and reduces the intensity of their negative feelings. This therapy suits individuals with long term anxiety and depression who want to make lasting change by getting to the core of their difficulties as a way of breaking the cycle.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
ACT aims to help clients better manage difficult thoughts and feelings through mindfulness, commitment to values and emotional regulation. This therapy is effective and clients enjoy it, particularly for problems that require acceptance.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to help clients shift unhelpful beliefs that lead to emotional distress. Although not every problem or person is suitable for CBT, it is effective for anxiety and also anger.
