We now offer Couples/Family Therapy from our offices in Salisbury and Stockbridge.

Dr Sharon Pettit

I offer one-to-one appointments either face to face, or remotely.  My clinical days are generally Tuesdays (Salisbury) and Thursdays (Stockbridge).

I bring more than 25 years of mental health experience and work. This has included NHS settings such as outpatients, in-patient wards, and mental health crisis team, as well as work in the private sector since 2004. I have training and expertise in psychological approaches for mental health difficulties, ranging from anxieties and depression, (also called common mental health problems), to more complex and enduring conditions.

I offer a personalised service, and therapy approaches based on the best evidence recommended by NICE Guidance (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence). I would be happy to have a brief chat to see if you would find an appointment useful.

I qualified as a Clinical Psychologist in 2001 and further specialised in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) which is a well-known therapy recommended by NICE for the treatment of mental health difficulties. I also have further training in other psychological approaches. I enjoy training other people and, for 10 years, worked as a senior lecturer at the University of Southampton, responsible for training CBT therapists, and I continue to do this on a consultancy basis. This puts me in a strong position to understand the needs of those who may be at College or University, and finding things difficult.
