Dr Beth Sanford
Dr Beth Sanford is a Clinical Psychologist with over 20 years experience working within both the NHS and private practice, including working with both adults and older adults in NHS primary and secondary care mental health settings. She specialises in working with people who are experiencing depression, anxiety, bereavement, grief and loss, life transitions, stress, post traumatic stress disorder, long-term physical health conditions, dementia including working with family carers of people with dementia, and other difficulties precipitated by difficult or traumatic life experiences. She has an interest in working with autistic adults and thinking about how psychological therapy can be helpful for difficulties they may be facing.
Dr Sanford has had specialist training in both Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and integrates other approaches such as Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT) when this may be beneficial. In all approaches she works collaboratively with individuals to gain a shared understanding of their difficulties and goals and to think about the most helpful ways of working together.
Dr Sanford also has extensive experience in supervising other Clinical Psychologists, both qualified and in training. Alongside her work at Mollart CBT, Dr Sanford continues to work in an NHS service delivering evidence based psychological therapy to those with mental health difficulties.
Dr Sanford holds a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and is an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society.
She is accredited as a CBT therapist with the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) and as an IPT practitioner and supervisor with Interpersonal Psychotherapy UK (IPTUK).
Dr Sanford is a registered Practitioner Psychologist with The Health Care Professional Council (HCPC), which monitors and regulates the practice of Clinical Psychologists.
