We are delighted to welcome Dianne Everitt to the Healthcare On Demand Team in Guildford.
A native of South Africa, Dianne has been working as a clinical psychologist in the UK for some years. She specializes in working with young people and adults, as well as couples and families. She has a particular interest in depression, anxiety, self-esteem, health problems, stress-related problems, and interpersonal difficulties. Her background is in systemic therapy, which emphasizes a holistic picture and focuses on how problems are being maintained and how a person’s context may be influencing the problem.Her aim in therapy is to quickly identify the obstacles that prevent a person from moving forward, and to implement problem-solving strategies.
An initial consultation with Dianne will provide an opportunity to discuss the difficulties you face, as well as for you both to both to get a feel for whether you can work well together. Diane believes that individuals hold an inherent resilience, and that the goal of therapy is to create a context in which a person can discover their inner strength and resilience.
