Dr Becky Grace is a Clinical Psychologist with experience across the lifespan, in a variety of NHS services, with a focus on forensic mental health settings. She is a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Becky obtained her BSc. in Psychology from the University of Edinburgh and subsequently, her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of Hertfordshire.
Becky mainly uses Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Systemic Therapy. This means she can support people to understand how their internal experiences (such as their thoughts, feelings, and behaviours), as well as the contexts in which people find themselves (such as their relationships, how they are seen by society, or their experiences of discrimination or disempowerment), can affect their mental wellbeing. In addition, she works in an integrative manner; drawing on narrative therapy, motivational interviewing techniques, and third wave CBT approaches. In this way, she aims to offer interventions which are tailored to the individuals she is working with.
Becky believes that individuals are experts in their own lives. She enjoys working creatively with people, and finds this particularly helpful where they may be neurodiverse or experience cognitive difficulties. Becky prefers to take a warm, gentle approach, working alongside the person in therapy, to ultimately empower them to reach their mental health and wellbeing goals.
