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.
An additional service that I am starting up this year is Ecotherapy. Instead of sitting indoors in a therapy room, I can offer one-to-one sessions outdoors in a natural setting, walking side by side. Please click here for more information on the potential benefits of this type of therapy, and do get in touch if you have further questions.
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.
