Barbara Kirby - Psychologist

You can find healthy ways to cope with a variety of life and emotional challenges. Working together with a psychologist, you can feel supported as you learn new skills, problem-solve your issues and change unhelpful patterns of thinking and coping. I mainly work with children, young people and parents. I have experience in the treatment of emotional, behavioural, and mental health issues. I use a person-centred approach and emphasize building a positive therapeutic relationship where we can explore issues together and develop helpful ways to manage these. My therapeutic style is influenced by compassion psychology, mindfulness, and solution-focused therapy and I blend these with principles/ strategies from the cognitive-behaviour therapy model. I work from a strengths-based perspective, building on existing strengths to help the person develop further skills and understanding.

I have over 12 years experience providing therapy for a range of issues, including:

  • Life transitions - family changes, role changes, adjustment
  • Stress & coping
  • Parenting support, positive behaviour support
  • Emotional difficulties - anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive behaviours, panic attacks
  • Traumatic events
  • Relapse prevention skills
