Kinga Oldham

Kinga Oldham

Kinga was appointed as a cognitive behavioural therapist at Priory Hospital Altrincham in early 2018. Since then, she has been delivering specialised group therapy for depression and running a number of inpatient group therapies for both the NHS and private patients.
Kinga is part of the Mood Disorder Clinic and also provides individual therapy for the adult outpatient population.

Training

Kinga graduated from the University of Salford in 2015 with a Master’s degree in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy.

In 2012 she completed a Diploma in Hypnotherapy. Prior to that she studied psychology and social sciences with the Open University.

She is committed to investing in her professional development, continuously updating her knowledge and skills, attending regular training, lectures and symposia.

Kinga has also been involved in delivering external courses in the field of psychotherapy and hypnotherapy.

Research interests:

In 2015, Kinga conducted a systematic literature review of the evidence of effectiveness of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) on different variations of depressive disorders.

This review provided an overview of key concepts relating to MBCT, as well as critical analysis of the recent research with its strengths and weakness.

I believe everyone has an ability to change in a positive way. I put strong emphasis on building up trust, instilling hope and motivation; creating a warm and non-judgmental environment.
At the same time, I incorporate psychological interventions based on solid research which proved high efficacy. I often focus on finding the root cause of the problem, neutralise associated emotions like guilt, anger or hatred, helping patients to live happier and more fulfilling lives.

I have extensive experience which allows me to address a wide range of complex psychological struggles.

Structure, collaboration, innovative interventions and my drive to improve help me to achieve continuous positive therapeutic results.

The below feedback is from patients who have completed my group CBT courses for depression:

  • ‘A life changing experience that will stay with me forever along with the skills I have learnt.’
  • ‘The group therapy was really helpful in giving me the tools and skills to move forward. It was so nice to share with other people who understand.’
  • ‘Excellent course, understanding and knowledge of my illness has been second to none’.
  • ‘I am so very grateful I was able to do this course, with such an amazing therapist and a group of people who understand how I felt. I could be honest, without being judged and listening to the experiences of others helped me identify my own issues and deal with them more effectively.’ 
  • ‘An eye-opener which helped me understand the principle reasons for depression and how to cope.’
  • ‘Really informative, supportive and practical course run by a compassionate and skilled therapist. I feel like I’m finally on the road to recovery.’
