Dr Jarvis is a compassionate and reflective Psychologist who has experience working with people both in the community and at times of crisis within the acute care setting. He uses a person-centred approach in order to assess individual needs, develop a shared understanding of someone’s difficulties and collaboratively construct a treatment plan based on this understanding.
Dr Jarvis is able to take a flexible approach, and select from a range of models for example CBT, EMDR or family working, to offer therapy for a range of different problem types including anxiety, depression, panic, OCD, phobias, trauma and personality difficulties. By the end of a piece of therapy, the individual (or family) can expect to have their own Wellness and Recovery Action Plan in order to help maintain their wellbeing and become their own therapist to maintain progress made in therapy.
Dr Jarvis can offer structured clinical assessment of cognitive functioning, personality or psychosis for a range of needs.
Dr Jarvis is passionate about recovery and people leading a personally satisfying life in which they feel in control and that they are living life in line with their values. This has been one of his main areas of focus in service development and research.
