Kirsty Rice
HCPC Registered Clinical Psychologist
Kirsty Rice

Kirsty is a Health and Care Profession Council (HCPC) registered clinical psychologist and eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) therapist who works with both young people and adults. She is also able to undertake autism assessments. Kirsty takes a gentle, creative and collaborative approach in supporting you with the challenges you are facing. Her aim is to work with you to both restore as well as optimise your wellbeing.

Originally from South Africa, Kirsty works with individuals of all ages and has experience in both inpatient and outpatient settings. She has worked with simple and complex trauma, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, neurodevelopmental conditions, identity challenges, loss, and adjustment to change. She also has a background in living with medical co-morbidities. Kirsty can support you in managing your stress as well as understanding your diagnosis. If you have recently been in hospital for your mental health, she is able to support you in processing and moving forward from such a difficult experience.

Kirsty generally takes an integrative perspective and will discuss openly with you what your specific needs are. Kirsty will share her treatment plan with you so that you can decide together as to what will work best for you.

Previously based in South Africa, Kirsty joined Priory in 2022 after successful registration with the HCPC, the governing body of clinical psychologists in the UK. At Priory, she actively supports service development and constantly seeks out ways to improve the quality of our services on-site.

Training

Kirsty obtained her clinical degree in South Africa at a network of hospitals in the southern region of Cape Town. This included top-tier primary, secondary and tertiary sites such as Groote Schuur Hospital, Valkenberg Psychiatric Hospital, Stikland Psychiatric Hospital, and Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital. During this time, she was also based at local community clinics.

Kirsty has previously published a paper on the role of neuropsychology in curatorship applications, and was part of a team that worked on a textbook chapter on developments in ICD-11 codes for children and adolescents.
