Dr Jessica Roberts
DClinPsych, BA (Hons)
Works With All Age Groups
I’ve helped people from all age groups and from varied and diverse backgrounds with a wide range of different issues and problems.
I like to take a relational approach in my work empathising the importance of rapport and trust between client and therapist. I believe in working with what the client brings to sessions.
Whilst, my main clinical modalities include Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Schema Therapy and elements of Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) such as distress tolerance techniques, mindfulness and third wave approaches, I do not believe in the one size fits all therapy style. Rather, I like to take a very integrative approach ensuring I tailor the therapy and support to the needs of the client.
I am often the first person with whom my patients share significant and intimate thoughts and memories; I never take that privileged position for granted nor the opportunity to help someone to feel better about themselves and discover a more fulfilling life. One of my colleagues once described me as natural psychologist; I guess she was alluding to the fact that I feel at ease being a therapist, I can empathise with people’s distress and discomfort but don’t feel overwhelmed by it, I can understand their problem and know how to help, it has always just felt like what I should be doing.
I enjoy travelling and seeing the world and learning about other cultures. Being from Australia, I enjoy the beach, sunshine and warm climates. I am passionate about working with those in need and I have a love for animals and nature.
