When are sessions available?

Sessions are available in the centre of Lincoln on Tuesdays and Fridays from 8am, with the last available appointment being at 5pm.  Remote sessions are also available during these hours.

How the service works:

The first appointment with any Clinical Psychologist is always assessment. Whilst clients are often keen to start treatment as soon as possible, before treatment can begin it is essential that your therapis has a good understanding of the issue that you are struggling with. Therefore, the first session will always be an assessment session. This, like other therapeutic sessions will last 50 minutes. During this session the terms and limits of confidentiality will be outlined and you will have an opportunity to discuss in more detail  nature of the difficulties that you are experiencing and what your goals from therapy are.

At this stage Dr Hart will ask you questions about your difficulties and their origins or ask for recent examples of them. He will then form and share a preliminary opinion about your difficulties, with some thoughts about the treatment that can be offered and an approximate number of sessions.

As a rough guide, Dr Hart will typically recommend between 10 and 14 sessions, including assessment for most difficulties, although longer or shorter therapy may be appropriate. You are under no obligation to take up sessions beyond assessment should you not wish to, nor do you have to use all the sessions recommended. You are free to terminate your therapy at any time.

Therapeutic Intervention:

Dr Hart will design a bespoke and individually tailored intervention  for you  based on the nature and severity of your presenting difficulty. It is important to Dr Hart that his work with you is collaborative and he will talk you through the treatment plan and what it will entail.

Dr Hart primarily utilises Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness based approaches as well

as traditional Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)  and Dialectic Behaviour Therapy (DBT). He additionally utilises EMDR in his treatment of PTSD.
