Dr Bethany Stroyde

​Clinical Psychologist, Online

Hello, I'm Dr Bethany Stroyde and I’m a clinical psychologist and yoga teacher. I'm currently offering online sessions only.

Being human can be a tricky business; but you are not alone.

I work with adults (18+) who are struggling with their emotional wellbeing or mental health (including anxiety and depression), as well as those who may be experiencing psychological stress from living with a long-term health condition (such as persistent pain or fatigue).

I can help you to gain insight into your struggles, learn to befriend your mind and body, and move closer towards the life you want.

I work in an integrative and values-based way, which means that I tailor how I work with each individual based on their needs and preferences and on what is most important to them in life. I'm trained in a range of evidence-based approaches and offer a contemporary understanding of the relationship between mind and body, including the impact of trauma earlier in life. I mostly draw from compassion-focused therapy (CFT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), as well as mindfulness, therapeutic yoga, emotion-focused therapy (EFT), cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), and psychodynamic therapy. I am also influenced by approaches such as parts work, attachment theory, and polyvagal theory.

Sometimes we may only need a few sessions to work on specific goals; other times we might need longer to explore more in-depth, build insight, and create long-lasting change. Whatever you require, I offer a safe, non-judgmental, and encouraging space to help you explore and connect the dots together and connect to your inner resources to bring about change.
