Dr Ruth Hunter, Senior Clinical Psychologist

Background information:

Ruth is a Chartered Clinical Psychologist currently working in a Secondary Care Mental Health Service in the NHS, working with individuals with complex mental health problems. She has experience of providing both individual and group therapy and can offer specialist assessment, formulation and therapy to adults experiencing a wide range of difficulties. She has a special interest in working with people who have experienced psychological trauma and has much experience in understanding and working with the effects of trauma.

Ruth draws on a number of models in order to tailor her care to each individual she works with. In particular, she uses Cognitive-Analytic Therapy (CAT), a time-limited therapy focussing on a collaborative understanding of an individual’s feelings, thoughts and actions, and the relational patterns (often stemming from childhood) which underlie these. In addition to CAT Ruth also uses Compassion-Focussed Therapy (CFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical-Behaviour Therapy (DBT).

She is a chartered member of the British Psychological Service and is registered with the Health Care and Professionals Council (PYL32476).
