About Dr Heather Sequeira: Consultant Psychologist

My focus is developing your resilience, optimum performance and good mental health. Many people approach me when they have already tried therapy elsewhere and are not getting the results that they want. Frequently it is the wrong therapy, the wrong therapist or both. This is where I can offer you the specialist approach.

I am respectful of the financial and, just as important, the time investment that you make in this process.

As a specialist in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for anxiety, trauma and stress related issues I don’t pretend to be a ‘jack of all trades’ but to hone my specialist skills to offer you the most effective and most efficient approach to address your individual issues.
