Bridget Hogg

Bridget HoggBridget Hogg, BSc (Hons), MSc (Clinical Psychology).

A Clinical Psychologist, Bridget Hogg places the utmost importance on the relationship she has with her clients. She has an easy, warm manner and firmly believes that if clients feel accepted and understood they will be most able to participate fully in the therapy process. She believes that at times humour and laughter can also be important parts of the therapeutic relationship and the process of therapy.

Bridget uses evidence-based treatments, that is, treatments shown to be effective by independent research, including:

  • Mindfulness,
  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT),
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT),
  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and
  • solution-focused therapy approaches.

Many behaviours such as disturbed eating, deliberate self-harm, alcohol and drug abuse, intense anxiety, and interpersonal difficulties may be linked to problems with regulating emotions and emotional responses to situations. These kinds of behaviours may help regulate emotions in the short-term, but often have a range of negative long-term effects. Bridget uses DBT approaches to help clients learn and use emotion regulation strategies that are helpful in both the short and long term. She is also very interested in the use of ACT and mindfulness training to assist in a range of situations in which clients are experiencing distressing thoughts, feelings and physical sensations.

It is an act of courage and self-care to seek therapeutic help for ongoing psychological difficulties, and Bridget respects and admires all clients who take the first step in that process by making their first appointment. She is passionate about helping people improve the quality of their lives, particularly those for whom life feels at times extremely difficult and painful.
