About Dr Louise Nairn CPsychol

I’m Dr Louise Nairn, a skilled and experienced chartered clinical psychologist who would like to help you understand, manage, or resolve your emotional and psychological concerns. My main therapy style is cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), although every client and situation requires an individually tailored treatment plan.

Experience and Expertise

In 1991 I achieved an MA in psychology from Edinburgh University, and in 1997 I received a doctoral degree in clinical psychology from University East London. Since then, I have gained more than 20 years of experience working as a clinical psychologist in the NHS, holding positions in GP surgeries, out-patient psychology services, sexual health clinics, a drug dependency unit and a community mental health team. During this time I have developed expertise in dealing with many problems, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Panic Attacks
  • Phobias
  • Obsessional Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
  • Sex and Relationship Issues
  • Addictions
  • Bipolar Depression
  • Post-Natal Depression
  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Managing Change
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Stress and Burnout


Maintaining High Standards

As any psychologist or health practitioner will tell you, providing the highest standard of service possible is of paramount importance. I’m committed to remaining at the forefront of the industry and assuring my clients that they are receiving the best assistance possible. To do this, I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (PYL24732) and adhere to the British Psychological Society (071567) Professional Code of Ethics and Conduct and the UK Data Protection Act 1998.
