Session content:

Dr Humber’s clinical work requires her to assess, formulate and treat the difficulties of adults. Individualised clinical assessment of the presenting problem, along with a personalised understanding of the problem in collaboration with the patient, will drive the recommendation and intervention plan. Sessions will focus on reducing symptoms of distress by using evidence based psychological strategies and techniques to alleviate suffering. The patient is deemed the expert on their experience and suffering so will play a key role in their recovery.

Dr Humber has completed post-doctoral training in a number of different psychological models and techniques. Her approach draws on cognitive, behavioural, schema, solution-focussed, systemic and narrative psychological models. She provides individualised sessions tailored according to a patient’s needs and personality.
