About Dr Barbara Medea (Clinical Psychologist)
Dr Barbara Medea is one of our Clinical Psychologists at Newcastle Psychologist & Counselling. With a specialism in supporting adults who have experienced trauma, she helps those with mental and physical health difficulties such as chronic pain, fatigue, low mood, anxiety, and poor sleep.
With experience working in both NHS and private mental health services, Barbara is also highly skilled in supporting people who struggle with vicarious trauma, compassion-fatigue and burnout.
Experienced Clinical Psychologist
In addition to her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Newcastle University, Barbara has also completed a PhD in Psychology and Social Neuroscience, and MScs in Psychological Assessment and in Clinical Psychology.
She has also continued with further training in therapeutic approaches including Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and Schema Therapy.
Through her therapy within the NHS and private mental health services, Barbara has experience working with people affected by both mental health difficulties and lifelong physical health conditions, such as chronic pain and fatigue.
She is particularly interested in the mind-body connection and helping people to identify (as well as treat) underlying factors to their difficulties.
Evidence-Based Approach to Therapy
Barbara has always been fascinated by how life circumstances shape the way that people think and behave.
After knowing first-hand what it means to deal with mental health difficulties, she discovered the power of therapy in helping people to become more resilient in the face of hardships and uncertainties.
She cares deeply for the transformation and personal growth of her clients and is keen on helping them to recognise the values that guide their lives.
With her therapy, Barbara aims to help her clients uncover a more compassionate relationship with themselves, with a view to becoming more resilient in the face of future life events.
She is a native Italian speaker and can also offer therapy in Italian.
