Hello, and welcome. My name is Dr Lara Akers-Douglas. I am a HPCP registered Chartered Clinical Psychologist who has been practicing in private and public health care settings in the UK and overseas for over 15 years. I now specialise in the field of trauma, having dedicated myself to extensive training on trauma informed therapies including EMDR, CBT and ACT therapies. I work from Cowes, on the Isle of Wight, and Southampton, as well as online via secure telehealth. 


 I am dedicated to providing compassionate psychological support to help you navigate life's challenges and bring about personal growth.  I offer a safe and supportive environment where you can explore your thoughts, feelings, and goals. My goal is to collaborate with you on a journey of self-discovery, empowerment, and positive change. Whether you're seeking help for specific issues such as anxiety, depression or trauma, or simply aiming to enhance your overall mental and emotional wellness, I am here to accompany you every step of the way. My approach combines professional expertise, evidence-based therapies, and a genuine dedication to helping you achieve your goals. Welcome to a place where healing and transformation begin.
