Welcome to Pryce-Jenkins Psychology
I am a clinical psychologist, accredited CBT therapist and EMDR therapist with over 10 years of experience working in psychological therapy services in the NHS. I now offer integrative psychological therapy, CBT and EMDR privately in Colchester to children, adults and couples experiencing depression, anxiety or relationship difficulties.

What is a clinical psychologist?
Psychology is the study of the human mind and behaviour. A clinical psychologist helps people understand why they are emotionally distressed and alleviate this distress. They are trained to postgraduate doctorate level to use a range of talking therapies with individuals, couples and families. Some specialise in particular therapies and they can also work integratively, drawing from a range of approaches.
What is a CBT therapist?
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a structured, goal focused therapy that has proved effective for a wide range of psychological difficulties. When distressed we think in more extreme and unhelpful ways, making us feel worse. Our actions then often also prolong our distress. CBT therapists help people understand and change their unhelpful thoughts and behaviours to lead to lasting emotional change.
Who can I help?
I offer psychological therapies to children (age 10+), adults and couples with:
* depression / low mood * anxiety / worry
* obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) * low confidence
* post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) * relationship difficulties
* panic attacks * health anxiety * phobias * social anxiety
* chronic pain * body image issues * eating issues * stress
