Welcome

Hello and welcome to my site.

Dr Stella Christofides

 I am an HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist in my 10th year of qualified practice working with adults, children and teenagers.

A Clinical Psychologist is a mental health professional who is interested in each person’s unique story to help understand what has contributed to the current situation and how to help. You’ll be asked about the impact of events in your life and about your strengths. Often ‘symptoms’ are our body and mind’s way of trying to help us cope. The source of difficulties may not be obvious and that is fine too. We can work together to find sustainable and healthy ways to manage difficulties and live a full life.

My work draws from a range of specialist therapies, including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for anxiety and depression and trauma focussed therapy including EMDR.

I also offer assessments for queries regarding Dyslexia and Autism Spectrum Conditions in children and adults. These include updating assessments for people starting university.

About you

It is normal for people to feel anxiety or nervousness when thinking about discussing mental health or approaching a therapist. I believe in offering a highly personal service in a relaxed and non-judgmental environment.

After our initial discussion, and if you wish to continue, we will use our sessions together to work towards clearly defined goals that are tailored to your needs.

Booking an appointment

If you are interested in booking an appointment, contact me for a brief discussion about what you are looking for and to check availability. My therapy and assessment clinics run at The Practice Rooms in Clifton, Bristol. I also offer sessions online using a secure version of Skype.
