Natalie Smith

Natalie Smith began working as a placement student at Woodbourne Priory offering one to one and group sessions in 2012. Once qualifying, Natalie continued working for the Woodbourne as a therapist providing one to ones, day patient and group patient support. Once Birmingham Wellbeing Centre opened, Natalie moved to the new clinic where she continues to offer one to one sessions to outpatients.

Research Interests

I have previously assisted on neuroscience papers at the University of Birmingham.

I provide a compassionate, non-judgmental approach to give clients space to be heard. Therapy is not a one size fits all approach so I will give the client autonomy in deciding how they wish to deal with their current issues. I have completed training courses in other approaches since completing my counselling psychology masters and aim to use a range of techniques in order to improve mental health. I will formulate with the client so we can manage goals together.

My main special interest is trauma and I offer EMDR and trauma focused therapies (such as cognitive analytical therapy) to treat this. However, I am also able to offer counselling and CBT techniques for depression and anxiety. The solution focused approach combined with DBT skills can often be particularly useful for alleviating symptoms of anxiety and depression
