Hi, I’m Emily.


Emily Holden Bates, MA Cantab, PhD, ClinPsyD

Clinical Psychologist, HCPC registered


I have been working in the field of Clinical Psychology since 2000, first in academic research, and from 2007 onwards in the NHS, working primarily with adults in a secondary mental health care service.

I offer individual therapy to adults who experience psychological, emotional or behavioural difficulties that are having a detrimental impact on their life and relationships. I specialise in working with adults who have experienced trauma in either childhood or adulthood.

I have extensive training and experience in using a range of therapy models including CBT, systemic, and psychodynamic approaches, and further specialist training in DBT, EMDR and ISTDP. The approach I take depends on the particular issues an individual brings to therapy, and can be adapted as needed.

If you would like to discuss working with me in therapy, please contact me by visiting my website listed above or emailing me to arrange a free 15-minute telephone consultation.

I am available at Space Therapies by appointment only.
