Dr Clarissa Bartlett (DCPsych)
I am a HCPC registered Counselling Psychologist (Reg No. PYL31856). Over the past 10 years, I have experience of working in primary and secondary mental health care, as well as inpatient services within the NHS. Currently, I work for Sussex Community Foundation NHS Trust providing psychological therapy for patients with long-term health conditions and practice privately in the Brighton and Hove area.
I enjoy working with clients from diverse backgrounds and with a range of difficulties. I am interested in how our past relationships and experiences affect how we currently function in life. My particular interests are in mindfulness-based interventions, neurobiological and sensorimotor approaches to psychological therapy.
On a more personal note, I was born in Burma (Myanmar) and moved to the U.K. when I was a young child. Growing up in two cultures has given me an appreciation of people from different backgrounds and identities, understand the challenges this can pose and helps me bring a grounded and practical approach to therapy.
