How Dr Freeman Works

Dr Freeman is passionate about people and excels at resolving problems. Her 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, she can employ a wide variety of psychological models and techniques, and works 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, Dr Freeman applies contemporary research, psychological theory as well as psychological assessments to formulate for a variety of occupational and life challenges, 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.

Dr Freeman works on a one-to-one basis but 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, she offers an individually tailored service that you can design together, combining personal meetings with Skype and/or telephone sessions to maintain regular contact.

Dr Freeman's Background

Dr Freeman's interest in psychology began in 1991 when she became interested in the psychographics of advertising. In 1998 she 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 she is now a chartered psychologist and a member of the Health Care Practitioners Council (HCPC).

She has 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. She has a natural ability to engage, empathise, put patients at ease, build and maintain lasting relationships. Having worked in Finland, The Netherlands, USA, Romania, Malaysia and Nepal, she has a rich, insightful and balanced socio-cultural worldview.
