Dr Kirsty Furness

Registered Clinical Psychologist

My approach is compassionate and non-judgmental. I will support and encourage you to achieve your goals by building on your strengths and resilience.

Although I have a special interest in resilience, stress, mindfulness and sleep, I have a wide range of experience covering areas such as anxiety, depression, adjusting to big life changes and finding a new direction in life.

I also offer personal coaching sessions for those wanting to maximise their wellbeing and to thrive in life.

I use a combination of evidence-based approaches that draw from the following:

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Metacognitive Therapy
  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy
  • Mindfulness
  • Resilience
  • Positive psychology


Please contact me for a free, confidential, 15 minute consultation with no obligation to make an appointment.
