Dr Liza Hart

I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist, with over 20 years experience of working with people experiencing a range of distressing thoughts, feelings and sensations, and troubling behaviour. Prior to joining The Salisbury Practice, I worked within NHS specialist mental health services, mostly with people who had experienced complex trauma histories.

I have trained in a range of approaches, including cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), schema focused therapy, and dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT). I aim to develop a shared understanding of the individual’s experience, to inform a range of possible steps towards a more rich and fulfilling life.

I have found my approach particularly suited to those who have experienced long-standing emotional difficulties, or who have tried many different ways of coping, and nothing seems to be working. I am also keen to work with those who lack a sense of self-worth or struggle to find meaning and purpose in their lives.

I am a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS; Division of Clinical Psychology) and have professional registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), which requires me to undertake regular continuing professional development activities to ensure I continue to practise safely and effectively.
