Lead Psychotherapist/Addiction Psychologist
Jenny Dew MSc Psych (Counselling) MBACP (Accredited) is an Integrative Counselling Psychologist and Psychotherapist and is the joint owner of the Green Door Clinic as well as director and co-founder of Rebuild Your Life Ltd.
Clinically I specialise in all aspects of mental health affecting both couples and individuals. The specialist areas include anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationships, self esteem, trauma, and any stress related issues connected with personal or work issues. I also work with all addictive behaviours, which includes sexual addiction, connected with living in the digital age.
I am an experienced therapist who has extensive training both in the UK and in the United States. This has included training with various specialists including Dr Patrick Carnes and Dr Stefanie Carnes who specialise in working with couples and individuals in the treatment of trauma, which often manifests as addictive or compulsive behaviour.
I specialise in areas which include the application of an Integrated model of Psychotherapy which involves Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) as well as Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Solution Focused Therapy.
My philosophy is to consider the individual to be an equal partner in finding a solution to their difficulties. Techniques are used to increase awareness so that with time a better understanding is created to manage life imbalance. Psychotherapy involves regular sessions in a confidential setting using a combination of techniques to suit the individual needs. It is of the utmost importance that the therapeutic setting provides a safe place so that trust and confidentiality can be maintained.
