Dr. Charlotte Ord
Counselling Psychologist & Psychotherapist
In my experience, most people face psychological difficulties from time to time. Life can be tough, and if you feel like you or someone you know is struggling at the moment, or perhaps has been for a while, it may be that I can help.
As a registered counselling psychologist based in Guildford, Surrey, I offer a safe, supportive and confidential space for you to explore the challenges you are facing. I understand that it can be difficult to talk about personal thoughts and feelings, and I recognise the importance of developing a strong therapeutic relationship so that together we can help you move forward more happily.
I believe that there is no one psychological approach that suits everyone, and I draw on a range of psychological concepts and psychotherapeutic techniques to discover what works best for you. I am trained and experienced in cognitive-behavioural, psychodynamic, existential and humanistic approaches, and consider the therapeutic process to be a collaborative effort in which we work together as a team.
I have a doctorate in Counselling Psychology from Regent’s University, London, a BSc (Hons) degree in Applied Psychology and Sociology from the University of Surrey, am a chartered member of the British Psychological Society and an HCPC-registered Counselling Psychologist.
Having worked in the health and fitness arena for over a decade, I have a strong interest in health psychology, and have worked across both public and private sectors in pain management, physical rehabilitation, and weight management.
I also have a particular interest in LGBT issues. I currently work for the NHS alongside my private practice, and have consulted for an array of organisations on health related matters, including the BBC, Sky News, ITV, The Guardian, The Times and Tescos.
My premises are conveniently located at the Brighter Spaces consulting rooms at 54 Quarry Street, Guildford, Surrey.
The clinic is situated a few minutes walk from Tunsgate car park and is a ten minute walk from Guildford train station.
If you require a ground floor room, please do let me know so I can arrange this for you.
Prior to your first appointment, it may be useful for us to have a discussion, either via email or 15 minute telephone consultation, so that I can answer any questions you have and find out a little bit about the issues you are facing. A good fit between you, your therapist and the type of therapy provided is very important, and if I am unable to offer you the most appropriate service for your needs I can recommend other options.
