Dr Jamie Yapp uses a variety of therapeutic approaches including Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Psychoanalytic. He is also a Certified Schema Therapist. He is highly experienced in undertaking professional risk assessment reports within a community setting, within both family and criminal law. He is also experienced in undertaking assessments of personality and treatment need, including within the community for adults, and within school settings.
His work is primarily helping people to understand, resolve and overcome difficulties linked to relationships, internal turmoil, identity, and attachment difficulties. Within his professional risk assessment work, he is able to assess for personality disorder / difficulties, treatment need, risk of recidivism and treatment need.
He finds this work very rewarding and focuses upon helping people to make links between what is happening internally, particularly things that the individual may not be immediately aware of, and how this impacts upon their relationships with others. He finds that this type of work helps individuals in being able to gain a greater understanding of repeating life patterns, and why these have happened. The goal of therapy being to move towards feeling more liberated and insightful regarding internal functioning, and minimising future psychological distress and rumination.
He has been an Associate with us since December 2015 and works mainly with the Doctors and Dentists in training at HEEWM.
