About Me

Dr Emma Kirkby-Geddes

PhD, MSc (Health Psychology), ChPsychol, MBPsS

I am a Chartered Psychologist and HCPC registered Health Psychologist.

I have a particular interest in applied psychology and in exploring ways to redefine our experiences of later life particularly around chronic loneliness and more widely, adjustment to change.

I have worked in a number of settings including in academia, in community health settings, public health, and in private practice. Before re-training as a psychologist I attended the Winchester School of Art and worked for many years in the Museums and Galleries sector in PR and marketing.

I am currently working on a number of projects including as a Trainer with Healthy You Ltd delivering a psychological skills programme to NHS staff.

I am also Mindfulness practitioner and teach on courses aimed at those new to mindfulness and meditation.

I have a daily meditation practice and am an ACT therapist (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) (ACT) and this forms the basis of my one-to-one client therapy/coaching work.  I have a growing interest in Polyvagal Theory and am keen to explore how this can be used in my work as a Psychologist.
